The plaza consists of a large grassy lawn meant to commemorate the traditional parade ground atmosphere of a military post, flanked at either end by an Ohio limestone wall inscribed with actual correspondences from Ohio military personnel involved in conflicts from World War II through the end of the twentieth century. Other features of the plaza include limestone benches from which to contemplate the inscriptions, two fountains, and plaque designations of the five branches of the armed services. Lined through the grass are the inscribed names of Ohio’s 88 counties with accompanying flagpoles as well as flagpoles displaying the American, Ohio and POW/MIA flags.
