It was a perfect place to visit and the Veteran walls are beautiful granite plaques telling stories of war heroes from the Civil war right to the Iraq war. I was so touched it may be cry. Such bravery of these veterans it leaves you breathless. It honors all US veterans,living and deceased. I was so proud to be able to view these plaques and felt I knew a bit more about each Veteran

Finish the walls and make new walls. I noticed there are no walls in the back of the Memorial and it would be nice if it was a complete circle of plaques

More exposure to the Military community and San Diego and all over the United States. I know you don't have to be a resident of San Diego. So it's open to every Veteran Honorable discharged
