A nice memorial, and the Memorial Day service was very moving.

I believe this is also the only such wall where the names are organized by the high school attended by the service member memorialized.

It is indeed, a wonderful memorial and it's great how the fallen honored are listed as schools attended. That certainly makes it even more personalized.
