Very moving tribute to those who fought during World War II. There is a post to represent each state and a fountain in the middle. There are depictions of scenes from the era in time.

This was our first time visiting this Memorial and we are glad we did. Walking around, reading the signage and understanding the vast undertaking it took to win this war made the Memorial that much more inspiring. It is very well done

Many families and tour groups looking and taking pictures. My father was in World War II. My mother purchased a brick with his name when they were building this. Could not find any such bricks anywhere.

I love how open this memorial is. It seems like a natural gathering place and ties directly in with the Reflecting Pool and Lincoln’s Memorial.

The "Washington DC National Mall, Monuments and Memorials Walking Guide (Washington DC City Walking Guide Series) Kindle Edition" is a decent download for just $3.99. You may want to give it a try.
