Seventy-five Years Ago / by Dave Hileman

On an otherwise quiet ordinary Sunday morning Japan attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor. America had entered the war. The World War II Memorial in DC is one of the newer of the National Park's many sites in the District. 

 This is looking toward the Pacific theater side of the mirrored memorial and is taken from the Atlantic side. Battles are etched in the granite and there are two towers, one on each end with striking sculptures inside.
