The Memorial In Context

It is here, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., where the United States proudly proclaims the continuity of our Union and protects the memories of those who have struggled to maintain and perfect it. The World War II Memorial occupies a place of honor along this central vista, and takes its rightful place among some of the great icons of American history.
