National World War II Memorial
Dedicated on May 29, 2004, the World War II Memorial is the first national memorial to honor "Americans who took up the struggle during the Second World War and made the sacrifices to perpetuate the gift our forefathers entrusted to us: A nation conceived in liberty and justice," as the announcement stone proclaims. The design by architect Friedrich St. Florian marks the Pacific and European Theaters of World War II with magnificent arches and remembers the 400,000 Americans who died with 4,000 stars along the Freedom Wall. It is located on the National Mall between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument.
I entered my brother a WW2 Vet when the memorial was initially gathering Vet's info, and have lost my ID that was sent upon my entering the info. How can I get this back? Subsequently lost a computer with II assume) the ID info on it.

This was my first time visiting the WW2 memorial, It was not actually something I had planned. In walking the long walk from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial, we stopped to take a look. Ended up there for a while. This monument has a lot of water and is very solemn. The stars representing all those who had died is a great tribute. Thank You vets.
Like the Korean War Memorial the profoundness of this site is best felt at night.
The lighting of the memorial and the reduced number of people help you feel the solmenness of the site.
Set between the Washington Monument and the Capitol it is even a romantic place to dwell in just after sunset.
The site recognizes the major battles and the states that participated and is just awe inspiring with it's size.
We did not expect the World War II Memorial to be a highlight of our trip to DC, but it was. The pictures of it do not do it justice. We definitely plan to go back. It's even a nice place to just relax and hang out for a bit during a long day of walking around DC.
The most triumphant memorial on the Mall! If standing at the base of the gold stars gazing up to the Lincoln Memorial does not grip your heart, surely the large water cannons and Baldacchino sculptures will. Dramatically lit and safe, I recommend viewing the Memorial at night.
