Iowa III

The memorial here is along the river walk. It is beautiful in its simplicity and dignity. It commemorates the 13 lost in Vietnam. It honors these and notes a Medal of Honor awardee, too. The memorial sits at the foot of the 4th street bridge and is across the Cedar River from the town's other memorials.

Waterloo is known for being the hometown of the Sullivan brothers. All five of whom were killed on the USS Juneau during WWII. The town recently celebrated the opening of the Sullivan Brothers Museum.
