Just outside the memorial stands an overlooked bonus tribute: a full-color bronze statue of Rae Wilson, the Canteen lady.

20th Century Veterans' Memorial

Closed for remodeling. Looks like it has been a nice memorial and will be again at some point. Doesn't say when they will be finished. They don't keep grass mowed very well in the picnic area, and I sure wish people would pick up their trash!

Get off exit 177, keep right going south and you can see it on your left.

[Carmen Walters, 04/21/2014]

Although labeled as the "20th Century Veterans' Memorial," veterans that served on either side of that Greatest of Centuries also get an appreciative salute. But the 20th century conflicts and its military service heroes are the ones highlighted.
