World War II Memorial

The World War II Memorial honors the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the U.S., the more than 400,000 who died, and all who supported the war effort from home. Symbolic of the defining event of the 20th Century, the memorial is a monument to the spirit, sacrifice, and commitment of the American people. The Second World War is the only 20th Century event commemorated on the National Mall’s central axis.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_World_War_II_Memorial

  1. "This memorial is dedicated to the memory of all those who have lost their lives during the current conflict in Iraq."

    Yeah, I'm guessing that doesn't include the Iraqis though.

    There is enough American militarism and war propaganda in the real world, I wish we didn't have to suffer it in SL.
