ROCHESTER, Minn. — The Soldiers Field Veterans Wall is one of the few attractions in this hospital-centric town. My tour of Rochester included a driving tour of the city and its restaurants as well as a walking tour of the massive medical complex that is the Mayo Clinic.
But this was the only place we really even got out and walked through.
The smoothed granite walls hold the names of every person from Rochester who died in a U.S. war/conflict from as far back as the Civil War.
We didn't know anyone so we were just there killing time before our next appointment.
