The monument is in the middle of a traffic circle so the visit was very brief. Very visually appealing. Glad to see our vets honored.

Unable to walk to the monument. It's in the middle of a traffic circle. It is well kept and it's nice to know that we Veteran's still have a monument that doesn't offend anyone.

It is a memorial for the Veterans of all wars, and has been there as long as i can remember. There is also an empty chair across the street at the Courthouse for the MIA's

Monument is located in the middle of the traffic circle at the end of the old downtown area. The area is a very quaint and well maintained historic district. Very nice place to take a stroll and do some antiquing
