Long Description:
The memorial is an engraved black marble stone located in a floral display to the left of Enterprise's "Our Wall of Freedom" memorial. The memorial is interesting in that is the place Enterprise can "honor and place the memory of those who died under non-combat conditions." I have never before seen non-combat specifically mentioned on a memorial.
