“Take Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

This memorial meant more this time then when I saw in 2006, but it may be that it is an accepted and well located spot on your mall tour and you know folks who have been on Honor Flights.

“What a great and humbling experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

What an amazing tribute to the veterans and those lost in this war. The memorial is in a great location between the Washington monument and the reflecting pool on the way to the Lincoln monument. A must see for all Americans

“"Thank you for Serving our Country"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

You really need to see this memorial. It is so breath taking. The pillars and the pool that was made to remember all our veterans.

I was sad to see people putting their feet in the pool. The signs are posted to refrain from this yet people do not show respect.

“Finally, a national memorial”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

This memorial is less than ten years old, which is odd when you consider the magnitude of World War II and the role the United States played in it. Still, better late than never. It's done very well, and I like the fact that it never closes. It's an open area that the public can access 24/7, rain or shine, any day of the year.

“Sad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Amazing to think that we lost that many Americans in this war. The monument was a lot larger than I anticipated and really took my breath away.
