The National WWII Memorial, next to the Reflecting Pool, is situated between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument, as the name implies, in memory of the American soldiers during World War II. There are pools and fountains in the center, and pillars around them bear the names of every state or overseas territory in the United States during World War II. When it comes to World War II, one can not help thinking that Japan would not have surrendered so quickly without the atomic bombs dropped by the United States in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I don't know what it would be like for Japanese people to visit this monument.
The National World War II Monument, sandwiched between the Reflection Pool and the Washington Monument, is also a tourist attraction. When the fountain in the center of the square fountain fountains, reflecting 56 granite pillars around, the scene is still quite spectacular. There is also a "wall of freedom" carved with 4,000 Venus, each representing 100 Americans who died in World War II.
The World War II Monument is a group of monuments, consisting of 56 white granite monuments in an oval shape, each with a relative arch at its long and diameter ends, carved with the letters Pacific and Atlantic respectively, representing two battlefields; the center is a fountain. The elliptical short-diameter front arc design is treated as a wall, called a free wall, with 4,000 Venus inlaid on it, representing the soldiers who died. It's difficult to get a panorama without wide angle.
Walking westward from the Washington Monument along the grassy steps is the magnificent World War II Memorial Square, slightly sinking in an oval shape. There is a square arched tower on both sides, engraved with Pacific (Pacific) and Atlantic (Atlantic), respectively. I guess they represent the two wars in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, as well as the geographical location of the United States; there are 56 stones around both sides. The pillars mark the States and overseas territories of the United States during World War II; a curved "Free Wall" is inlaid with 4,000 golden pentagons, each representing 100 American soldiers who died in World War II, in memory of more than 400,000 American generals who died in World War II; and the round pool in the middle sprays elegant currents, as if chanting postwar peace. Yes, the United States is quiet and tranquil, but it keeps setting off fireworks of war overseas.
Located between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., the National World War II Monument is dedicated to the memory of 16 million U.S. servicemen who served during World War II. The whole memorial is a sunken oval square with a circular Lake in the middle and 56 granite pillars on both sides, each representing a state, Washington, D.C. and overseas territory in the United States during World War II. Construction of the monument began in September 2001 and was completed at the end of April 2004. The monument was opened to the public. The completion ceremony was officially held in May 2004. The whole building is solemn and magnificent. The monument is magnificent, magnificent and beautiful in shape and area.
It was built in memory of the 16 million American servicemen who served in World War II. Construction began in 2001 and was formally completed in 2004. There is an arch in the north and south, one in the Pacific Ocean and the other in the Atlantic Ocean, connected by 56 granite pillars, each with a state name inscribed on it.
