A really well-done memorial, much more than I thought it would be. I especially liked the soldier stepping into the wall at the end.

The memorial is to honor the 280 service personal of all the U.S. military branches-from the City of Rochester, and the six surrounding counties- that fought in Vietnam. A start should at the flags. The American flag stands at the center of a brick/stone wall with all branches-The POW/MIA, U.S. Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force, Marine Corp and the 1775 U.S. Army in a half circle.

After the flags is the walkway of the Memorial Walk. The walkway is a winding downhill & finally uphill. On the right-starting in 1964 & ending in 1973-are stainless steel stands-called Bollards-with first person killed-Army, Navy, Air Force & Marines-with name, date of birth & death, home town, Rochester & possible local high school.

Along the Walk is the Metal Of Honor Grove, The Sculpture Veterans Garden, The Learning Area ending with The Garden of Reflection also the rules hoe a visitor must conduct their selves and what can't be left to a person.

The Learning Area is a group of 12 memorial stones-some large & small-with words cut in both sides. Words are: 'Hello David', 'Welcome Home Our Truly Homeless Veterans', ' Always Remembered', 'Rochesterians: A Tradition of Service', 'Vietnam Veterans', and 'Never Again Should One Generation of Veterans Forget Another: Korea'.

Parking is a small/medium gravel lot. If using a GPS unit, use 1440 South Avenue, Rochester, DON'T use use the street address on the computer screen, this address is a narrow street with no entrance to the memorial. My visit was a hour & half that included photography, reading & checking out a park next door.

Any veteran of any war should enjoy a visit, with the only problem being the winding walkway-down or up-that a visitor has to traverse. I never serviced in any service, however I enjoy any type of military site. A visit is highly recommended.

This is a beautiful memorial, that must have taken hours of work to plan. It starts on a hill, and as you descend you see the plaques commemorating those lost in the Vietnam War. There is also a very detailed time line of history that was involved in the war. The statue of the soldier walking into a wall really spoke to me about the futility of this war. We only stayed 30 minutes or so...but the impact of the visit will last forever.

This small memorial is very special. Captures the history of the war over time with markers for each fallen soldier. Very moving; in a small way, almost as impressive as the Vietnam Memorial in DC.

We went with family and kids. Beautiful setting and cleverly set up on a hill, with a path winding through a beautiful green area. Names of area veterans, who gave of their lives are stretched throughout.

In May of every year tens of thousands visit Highland Park for the Lilac Festival. In that same park, on its southside is a Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Fourth of July, and every day MUST SEE - the Greater Rochester Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The Memorial has its own parking lot off of South Avenue. A short walk away is the Overlook. The memorial takes advantage of the land form. This is the highest point - offering an overview of the memorial as well as markers with maps of Vietnam. One then starts down the Walk of Heroes which consists of 280 brushed stainless bollards giving information on each of the honored dead. These are on the right side of the paver trail. To the left are curbing stones which give the history of our involvement there. As the Walk of Heroes winds around it passes the Medal of Honor Grove, the Veterans Garden, and the Learning Center. Over the years stone benches have been added along the way for one to stop at, take everything in, and reflect. Informational stones and renderings are also worth the time to read. The Memorial honors the service of those paying the ultimate price. It enables the visitor to see and reflect on this cost, so that no generation of veterans is forgotten again.
