I loved my previous nocturnal visits to this monument. It is beautifully illuminated. This was my first visit during the daytime.
This monument makes me think about a great period in history and the many people who made so many sacrifices of all kinds in order to build a better world.
The monument itself recognizes each of the (then) 48 states and US territories. It also recognizes many of the great campaigns in both the European and Pacific theaters of the war.
The setting of the memorial, between the Washington Monument and the Reflecting Pool, with the Lincoln Memorial, further in the distance is an ideal location. It is a peaceful, reflective, and happy place.over 5 years ago
I’ve been to several WW2 memorials but I think this was my first one in the USA and I’m from here. I liked the quotes, that the states and territories were recognized, as well as locations of the war. I found this memorial much more moving after the recent death of my grandfather, a WW2 veteran. The memorial is big and scenic but I know others didn’t like it (controversy when it was built that it would obstruct the view).over 5 years ago
