HISTORY WAS MADE ON THIS DAY IN 2004

National WWII Memorial


On April 29, 2004, the
World War II Memorial opened in Washington, D.C. 
to thousands of visitors, providing overdue recognition for the 16 million
U.S. men and women who served in the war. The memorial is located on
7.4 acres on the former site of the Rainbow Pool at the National Mall
between the
Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. The
Capitol dome is seen to the east, and Arlington Cemetery is just across
the Potomac River to the west.
