This is a small park en route to NAS Oceana. It's worth a 10 minute stop going to or from the airshow.

This is not a time consuming attraction. There isn't much parking, but not many people visit the site at one time. If you wish to reflect upon the country's POWs and MIAs, the site will offer a moment to remember these heroes

Quiet place to remember our heroes - POW & MIA. There's a few plaques and small monuments. The Oceana air base is behind the memorial, and it's nice to see and hear the jets taking off - remembering the price of our freedom.

A beautiful place to stop and be mindful of the service of others and their impact on our daily lives. Be grateful to be American
