World War II Memorial
Landmark, Memorial Site
- This memorial, dedicated in 2004, honors the 16 million Americans who served in the armed forces during World War II (1939-45).
- This is my great-grandfather, who is a WWII vet, standing in front of the memorial. He is 98 1/2. He thought the memorial was great.
- Find your state and take a picture next to it. Really cool memorial.
- Do not listen to what Dale T. said, this is a sacred fountain not a swimming pool. Respect the memorial.
- Bring a wide angle lens this place is huge but beautiful
- Go see the memorial at sunset when it's all lit up and you can see the sun setting behind the Lincoln memorial. It's absolutely incredible!
- Kilroy was Here
- By Sept. 2, 1945, when Japanese signed the Instrument of Surrender, 671,000 Americans had come home wounded. DAV was there for them then just as DAV is here now for those injured and ill. #DAVpromises
