"The WWII Memorial" World War II Memorial Tip by Gypsystravels
World War II Memorial, Washington D.C.: 75 reviews and 216 photos
As a history buff I was interested in seeing what this memorial represented to those that it commemorates. Honoring the 16 million men and women who served in the armed forces of the U.S. and the more than 400,000 who died along with those who supported the war efforts from home it really is a magnificant and serene memorial.
The memorial consists of 56 pillars representing our Nation's states, territoris and D.C. during the war. There are also two arches representing the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans which are located on the north and south ends of the memorial. Encirculing the pillars is the fountain.
I always enjoy a stroll among the pillars especially on a nice sunny day.
