This is a great idea. At first I thought 'oh another lame memorial, who cares about those..' but I see how it would mean so much to the soldiers on the line and to those who contemplate it. It would signify a commemoration of sacrifice that is detached from the hostility and chauvinism that such memorials normally provoke.
O thou great people dreaming of building memorials and parks, first ensure that existing memorials e.g. Taj Hotel, Jewish place, are not destroyed.
