Hidden Inscriptions and Beautiful Photos The stunning World War II Memorial,on the National Mall, is literally in the shadow of the Washington Monument. This fitting tribute honors “The Greatest Generation” who served in WW2. The Freedom Wall to the west has 4,048 stars representing the 400,000 Americans who gave their lives. It takes your breath away. The 56 perfect granite pillars with bronze wreaths are beautiful. The 24 bronze panels at the entrance tell the story of Americans in the war. The amazing granite arches on each end are for the Atlantic and Pacific Theaters. Can you find the two hidden inscriptions of “Kilroy was here”? (See photo.) Quotes and timeline references tell the story of how the Allies won the war. The pools and fountains represent the seas. See the photos below of how spectacularly they are lit up at night.

Large, amazing structure. The pictures don't do it justice. Worth seeing, if you come to D.C.
My favorite memorial. Very moving. Check out the pictorial panels as you walk down to the fountain on either side.
There is a stark difference between the pomp and grandeur of the WWII Memorial in the Mall when compared to the monuments for the later wars. It is a stunning piece of design and a great place to photograph.
