When we were walking to the Lincoln Memorial we stumbled upon this. Of course it's hard to miss, But I was unaware of its location. It's right by the reflection pond.

This is a beautiful memorial not to be missed. Each state is represented by a pillar with a laurel wreath. The fountain is beautiful and should be seen during the day and at night.

A must visit when you're in DC. Its a huge memorial, with lots of open spaces. A rather sobering experience being here. Great photo opportunities. A great opportunity to pay your respects for those who have lost their lives defending for what they believed in.

Been to D.C. before but before the WWII Memorial. It was breathtaking. My grandfather found in WWII and it definitely brought tears to my eyes.
