    Go see the memorial at sunset when it's all lit up and you can see the sun setting behind the Lincoln memorial. It's absolutely incredible!

    By Sept. 2, 1945, when Japanese signed the Instrument of Surrender, 671,000 Americans had come home wounded. DAV was there for them then just as DAV is here now for those injured and ill. #DAVpromises

    This is my great-grandfather, who is a WWII vet, standing in front of the memorial. He is 98 1/2. He thought the memorial was great.
