We took Pop to go see it when he and Grandma flew out to DC for James and Heather's wedding. It was such a special day.
It is a reverent and beautiful memorial, and it was wonderful to see all of the aged, shuffling men and their wives, and each with a unique story of sacrifice and bravery, but each sharing a common bond of being WWII veterans.Grandma & Pop
I was touched to see that the younger people would step aside and let the veterans have the front row. Countless visitors said, "Thank you for your service" to Pop, and I remember one young man who asked him several questions and was hanging on Pop's every word!
It brings tears to my eyes that so many WWII veterans were never able to see their memorial (or still might never due to lack of resources or poor health). I'm grateful Pop was able to see it before he passed away. I'm so happy that someone is doing something to help those who might not be able to see it! What a great example of filling a need.
