The National World War II Memorial was a nice stop along the walk from the Lincoln Memorial towards the Washington Monument. The water kept the air nearby pretty cool on a humid hot day. It offered great views of other places around the area.

So many lives lost. This moving memorial is a fitting tribute to those who served and those who sacrificed their lives so that we may live free.

This is a nice memorial to remember and honor WWII. There is a pillar for each state so it's neat to get a pic with your state's pillar.

This is a lovely tribute to all those who served in World War 2. They have volunteers to explain the different pieces of art in each wall. Very good visuals on explaining the Pacific and Atlantic perspectives.

When we visited this on June 6th, there was a celebrartion of the memorial with music and honor guards. It was quite a moving experince. The memorial is situated in a most beautiful location, with the pools etc, and the Lincoln memorial not far away.

Two beautiful fountains surrounded by a circle of columns representing the states and US Territories provide a nice tribute to World War II veterans.

This was one of the Memorials that I saw on the Night Tour that I took the first night that I was in Washington, DC! It was great!

This memorial has a number of symbolic elements. Make sure you take the time to read through a good description. Can you find the two "Killroy was here" markings?

The "Washington DC National Mall, Monuments and Memorials Walking Guide (Washington DC City Walking Guide Series) Kindle Edition" is a decent download for just $3.99. You may want to give it a try.
