Downtown Urban Micro in your basic 35mm Film container.

This micro will bring you to a place to read letters from service men and women who gave their lives at a war from the last 200+ years. Take time to read these letters to appreciate what these men went through. There are letters home from the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, WW1, WW2, Korean War, Vietnam War, and the first Gulf War. Letters to moms, friends, wives, and more.

This is a log only micro, bring your own pen or pencil. Please replace this exactly as hidden, taking care to get it in the right spot. It is not visible, but should be fairly easy. No additional hints should be necessary

NOTE: Please do not disturb the landscaping. You will not need to in order to retrieve this cache. Happy Hunting!

I found it with my oldest on a rainy evening after a ferry ride.

Thanks for placing a cache at this great area. Never knew this was even here. Took a moment to read several of the letters. Find #400 for us.

Found it! I had to become one with the pavement in order to see low enough to find it. This time I didn't have a Norfolk Police boat hovering nearby. Thanks for the extra hint. Accidently found my first benchmark. I found the "zero mile" benchmark in front of MacArthur Memorial at 36 50.849 N, 076 17.349 W.

I found the general area, read as many letters as I could in the 28 degree weather, but could not find the cache. I looked under and around ALL of the "letters", but couldn't find anything. The Norfolk Police boat that was hanging around a few hundred feet away must have been thinking weird things were afoot. I ran out of time and had to scoot to work (via Elizabeth River Ferry). I guess I'll have to try it again on another day. Can anyone give me another hint?

Parked in a nearby parking garage and went over to the area of interest. Now who left all these brass letters lying around? :)It's an interesting memorial and certainly unique among all that I have seen. Coordinates were very accurate and I only had to feel around for the cache. Thanks.

Another late log for me...Sorry!

This was a great cache...It brought us to a wonderful view and very memorable piece of history. The letter were very touching. I love these types of caches. These really are my favorite kind...Thanks penguincacher for bringing us here. The place was full of muggles and a Channel 3 news crew! A group was there reading out loud the names of those killed in IRAQ. We were very stealthy but found the cache possibly in the wrong location. So we contacted the owner. We read the letters and listened to some of the names being read out loud...A very touching experience.
