WWII Memorial



Here are a couple of pictures of the WWII Memorial on the mall in DC. The top picture is across the fountain to the Atlantic side of the memorial. The bottom picture is of the star field. Each star represents one thousand Americans that gave their lives in this great conflict. This was only a small portion of the field

This is the first time I have seen this memorial. I am glad I did.

I LOVE THE SECOND IMAGE! It is the pattern. I know that was a special place to go visit. I used to live in Richmond so we used to be back and forth to DC all the time.

You are making me miss it Mike!

WOW! 1 thousand per star? That's just... I just don't know what to say.

That is touching. So many lives. I love the shots and the pattern you captured.

That is sobering.

I haven't seen the WWII memorial. We lived in northern Virginia in 1996 and 1997 (I think), before this was in place.

DC is a great place to visit. So much history there. But watch out for winos peeing on monuments!
