“A superb tribute”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

I have to say it is odd to see a memorial for the second world war of 1941 to 1945, but reflects the US's entry following Pearl Harbour. It is a superb memorial detailing both the Atlantic and Pacific theatres. There are quotes all around the memorial picking out key moments of the war. The memorial sits in the mall between the Washington and Lincoln monuments, but without obscuring the view of all these major sites. Take time to visit, it is well worth the time and reflect on what the gold stars represent, moving.

“About Time”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

It is about time that veterans from WWII are honored with this exhibit. While it is a shame it is not an indoor exhibit showing all facets of the War, it is also understandable. First, since it was a monumental war and time, with so much involvement in different areas of the world, I am not sure it is possible to have such a large building reflecting all of it. Also, my understanding is that because of the location, they did not want to build a museum there that would block the view from the Capitol Building to the Lincoln Memorial. This memorial certainly deserves to be in the National Mall, with the other honored places for great leaders. My father fought in Tunisia and France and it makes one very humble to see all the countries represented. Please go and pay tribute and thanks to those that sacrificed so much to better our country and help the rest of the world.
