World War II Memorial

World War II Memorial

Today the formal Dedication Ceremony of the National World War II Memorial will take place. The World War II Memorial is the first national memorial dedicated to all who served during the Second World War. The memorial, established by the American Battle Monuments Commission, honors all military veterans of the war, the citizens on the home front, the nation at large, and the high moral purpose and idealism that motivated the nation’s call to arms.

Now for the really cool parts, do you know someone who served in WWII? If so, you can honor that friend or family member by enrolling them in the WWII registry. I believe you can fill out all the necessary information online too.

There are high resolution pictures on the site for all of us who think the memorial is great but can’t get to Washington to see it. I think the memorial is gorgeous, but I’ll leave you to decide for yourselves. You can also find out about the design team, watch the design team video, and the memorial design in this section. I highly recommend checking out the Memorial Design section so you can see what part each section of the memorial plays in honoring our veterans from WWII.

Here is an example of what you will find in the description of the sections: “Within a commemorative area at the western side of the memorial is recognized the sacrifice of America’s WWII generation and the contribution of our allies. A field of 4,000 sculpted gold stars on the Freedom Wall will commemorate the more than 400,000 Americans who gave their lives. During WWII, the gold star was the symbol of family sacrifice.”

This site has many facets and each one is worth your time. I enjoyed all of this site, and would love to go to and visit this memorial in person.

Take some time out to remember the meaning of this holiday and visit this site.
