Tribute

The daylight brings the buses and walk-in visitors, but were you fortunate enough to see the satisfaction it brought to a WW II veteran's face and the look it brought to a widow's memories. The World War II Memorial is more than unique features, shaped granite, historical quotes, splashing fountains and gold stars. It is a tribute to the sacrifices paid by so many to preserve our freedom. It signals and symbolizes the end of a long pilgrimage taken by millions of veterans who patiently waited to see it approved, designed, constructed and now rightfully placed on our Nation's most sacred ground. It is truly a vision come true, a "field of dreams" and a gift from a grateful nation. Please click below to learn more.
