When first in DC we learned of the plans to build this monument ~
the World War II Memorial.
My dad served in WWII along with
my two uncles, one died off Saipan.
This end represents Pacific and the other end Atlantic.
The memorial is located on the other end of the Reflective Pool,
and you can see the Lincoln Memorial on the horizon.
I wasn't the only photographer...
I loved the bronze scenes as you walk through the entrances.
The etched quotes are touching...
Each pillar representing the US states, the District of Columbia,
and the Territories of the US as of 1945.
Amazing to me - my family's states were on the side
where they fought...very emotional!
My Uncles from Oklahoma!
Dad was originally from Kentucky.
Dad spent most of his time in North Africa
This sums it up well...
