    Great memorial, only disappointed in the people who thought they could dip their feet and bodies in the water, it's not a public pool! No park serv. Rep. to monitor

  • DAV - Disabled American Veterans
    By Sept. 2, 1945, when Japanese signed the Instrument of Surrender, 671,000 Americans had come home wounded. DAV was there for them then just as DAV is here now for those coming home injured or ill.

    One of the newer memorials, but a definite "must-see". Located directly between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. Very scenic!

    Order: Delaware (1st state to ratify the U.S. Constitution). To the left is the second, Pennsylvania. Then the order goes back and forth /right and left, around the circle, as each entered the Union.

    Shake hands of veterans and their families! It's a privilege to experience amazing feelings of pride. Listening to their stories makes you literally appreciate what you have. One said: "I was lucky!"

    As long as there aren't undisciplined children running around, this is probably my favorite of the memorials on the Mall. Come anytime sunset or after for the best experience.

    Go see the memorial at sunset when it's all lit up and you can see the sun setting behind the Lincoln memorial. It's absolutely incredible!

    The memorial honors who served as part of the American armed forced during WWII. It's free and open 24/7. The most convenient way to reach to the memorial is by Metrobus or Metro.

    States not sorted based on the Pacific and Atlantic sections. Think about it: where would Illinois fit into that categorization? The pillars represent the Pacific and European battles.

    Totally appropriate to honor the many who fought in WWII. Just maybe this is a bit too much like something Speer would have dreamed up.
