Adjacent to the Airborne& Special Operations Museum is a modern park dedicated to military veterans from all 5 branches of the armed services: Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard.

Inside the small building is a wall depicting every service medal awarded since the Civil War, a chandelier made out of 33,500 dog tags and an interactive globe where you can pinpoint a location and learn about a heroic event which happened there.

There’s a “touch garden” consisting of 100 bronze hand castings from vets’ families,and friends, sculptures created from salvaged military artifacts and misty water walls. Tues-Sat 10-5, Sun 12-5
