Named after John Basilone, a U.S. Marine who received the Medal of Honor in the Battle of Guadalcanal in WWII and was nicknamed "Manila John," this memorial pays tribute to the soldiers that never came home during the wars of the 20th century. The open, public space has a bubbling fountain and chairs.
