The Japanese attack on Pearl Habor brought the United States into World War II and changed the lives of over 16 million that served and saved the U.S.

The World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. 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.
