The National World War II Memorial is a national memorial dedicated to Americans who served in the armed forces and as civilians during World War II. Consisting of 56 pillars and a pair of small triumphal arches surrounding a plaza and fountain, it is located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on the former site of the Rainbow Pool at the eastern end of the Reflecting Pool, between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument.

  1. The designers and builders did magnificent work in this tribute to that great generation. Eisenhower's words particularly catch my interest.

  2. Love Washington DC. It used to be our Easter destination when we lived in the eastern US. Now, we are far away in Germany--need to get back there.
