“The purpose of the national World War II Memorial is to honor, inspire, and commemorate. It acknowledges the bravery of our allies, celebrates America’s unprecedented unity and solidarity in a time of peril, and honors the heroic achievements and sacrifices of the entire nation in the cause of liberty and freedom. It is a tribute to America’s Greatest Generation and a timeless reminder of the price of freedom.
….Prominently located on the central east-west axis of the national Mall, halfway between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, the site of the World War II Memorial reflects the historical importance and lasting significance of the war in American history. It is an inspiring setting on the centerline of the nation’s commemorative landscape.”
To learn even more about the National World War II Memorial you can view the WWII Memorial Book, published by the U.S. General Services Administration on the occasion of the May 29, 2004 dedication of the Memorial. Friends of the National World War II Memorial wish to express our deep appreciation to the GSA for making this book available for viewing on our website. The book is a significant resource that contributes to the Friends goal of further educating the public about the meaning, design, construction and architectural details of the Memorial.
