With a number of wars that America was involved in/with, it is but fitting to honour the brave men and women who fought for the freedom of the oppressed.

This World War II Memorial is a massive tribute to honour the dead–and with a price tag of $174 million to build it. It has 56 pillars representing the US States and territories and the District of Columbia.

The pillars are anchored by two 43-ft arches: The Pacific and The Atlantic. There’s a Freedon Wall that shows 4,000 gold stars to honour the 400,000 Americans who were killed during World War II.

THE KOREAN WAR VETERANS MEMORIAL

The Korean Veteran War Memorial

Featuring 19 gray soldier-statues, each one depicts a life of a soldier in action, crossing a green field of junipers, this scene is spellbinding. Opposite these statues (right next to where I stood to take this photo) is a black granite wall where the words, “Freedom is not Free” are inscribed.

Other memorials (which obiously I never had time to go) include:
*Vietnam War Veterans Memorial
*World War I Memorial
