It was finished just in time for Memorial Day 2004. Here is a link to someone's On-line Photo Album that shows the final stages of construction of the Memorial during winter of 2004. More photos during Memorial Day weekend and the large military display that was close by the Memorial. Also, great shots of Veterans who attended the Dedication. Other photos such as night shots. Also, did you know that the made one final addition to the Memorial. They added a "Killroy was Here" cartoon to a small spot on the back side of one wall (I believe). I couldn't find it. When you visit it, see if you can located it.

For years, most Americans believed that the statue depicting 6 US servicemen raising the flag atop Iwo Jima was the WW2 memorial; which was dedicated by President Eisenhower in 1954. However, in the 1990's the President Bill Clinton administration authorized another memorial, which was funded by federal and private monies. Construction began in 2001.
