Publicly accessible with a stellar view of San Diego a d the Pacific Ocean. Many of the stones are recent with the interred being very young. While you are seeing the sights, remember to honor our sacred dead. Be respectful.
A picturesque, peaceful place overlooking the ocean. A beautiful place for US military to be remembered for their service. There's a large information center (with restrooms) that contains a number of fascinating historical weapons and armor, as well as a walk through historical display on the discovery and settlement of America.
