    Great memorial, only disappointed in the people who thought they could dip their feet and bodies in the water, it's not a public pool! No park serv. Rep. to monitor

    States not sorted based on the Pacific and Atlantic sections. Think about it: where would Illinois fit into that categorization? The pillars represent the Pacific and European battles.

    The wheat wreaths on these pillars represent agriculture and the oak wreaths represent industry.

    It's mediocre in the winter, but will blow your mind when the water runs in the summer!

    As long as there aren't undisciplined children running around, this is probably my favorite of the memorials on the Mall. Come anytime sunset or after for the best experience.
