Taken from Panel 4 of 4 at the Iwo Jima Memorial:
"The United States Marine Corps War Memorial stands as a symbol of our nation's high regard for the honored dead of the Marine Corps. Although the statue depicts one of the most famous events of World War II, the memorial is dedicated to all Marines who have given their lives in defense of the United States of America since 1775...."
This was my first photo taken upon arrival at the memorial and not until I downloaded the photos did I see the Washington monument, Lincoln memorial and the Capitol dome all captured here......along with the interstate signs. :-(
