We had to meet a client in Merritt Mall yesterday and after the meeting, we really had no plans where to go next. We saw this place which is just near the area of Merritt Mall. We decided to go and explore the Veteran's Memorial Park located at 400 S Sykes Creek Pkwy Merritt Island, FL 32952 and if you wanted to know the direction, call them at tel #(321) 453-1776.

The conflict was the deadliest in American History, and resulted in over 620,000 soldier deaths from battle wounds and disease.
