this was one of the memorials we visited in Washington DC. It's a very beautiful memorial. Definitely one of my favorites.

Tucked away behind the much larger WW 2 memorial is a small, rotunda offering a quiet place in the trees with children dancing around the open floor. It's powerful in its simplicity.

The Tidal Basin is surrounded by large monuments and memorials about famous people - Lincoln, Jefferson, FDR, MLK - and American wars - World War II, Korea, Vietnam. Amid these is a small marble memorial listing the names of the citizens of the District of Columbia who died in World War I. There's nothing else on the memorial and it only takes a few minutes to see. It's in a quiet clearing in a very busy location in DC, and these citizens who died serving the country are worth honoring every bit as much as those honored by the larger, newer memorials nearby.

Easily overlooked given the National Memorials around it. but set in a really beautiful location between the tidal basin and the WW2 memorial.

This small monument adjacent to the Reflect Pool, between the Lincoln Memorial and the World War II Memorial is a structure dedicated to the residents of Washington, DC who served in World War I. It's easy to miss, as this memorial is set back in a grove of trees, but it's a quiet, contemplative spot that offers some respite from the crowds that use the paths along the Reflecting Pool. Well worth a few minutes to visit this hidden memorial.
