The wall is an extraordinarily humbling reminder of the losses incurred in the Middle East Wars. This memorial also is in a beautiful spot on the Illinois River in Marseilles.

The memorial over looks the river in a lovely setting. There is a small inside space filled with memorabilia from fallen soldiers. We stopped on our way to Starved Rock State Park.
