Long Description:
Vertical polished black marble memorial that resembles a surfboard with a missing crescent in the upper left side. I do not know if there is any significance to the shape of this memorial but if you look at the waymark for the Vietnam Memorial in New London, Ohio, you will notice a similarity of shape between the two.

This memorial is accompanied by a POW/MIA memorial, Korean War memorial and several others in the same area. This cemetery is a relatively new one with the first internment occurring on January 10, 2000.
