Sky Watch - Friday

This photo was taken at the National World War II Memorial. The sky is reflected in the pool in front of the Field of Stars. Each one of the stars represents 100 men who died in the war. There are 4,ooo stars on the wall.


"...we honor all of our fallen soldiers, their commitment to our country, and their legacy of patriotism and sacrifice. By giving their lives in the cause of freedom, these heroes have protected and inspired all Americans." President George W. Bush
