With the government FINALLY breaking ground on a WW II Memorial in Washington DC.  Does anybody think that will in any way take away from the Arizona Memorial?  Or will it enchance what the Arizona Memorial stands for?

First of all a WW II Memorial is LONG overdue.  Pearl Harbor was the start of WW II for America but WW II is just more than Pearl Harbor.  

I think the WW II Memorial will enhance what the Arizona Memorial stands for.

I don't know that it will do either. It's not only on a different coast, but the context is completely different. DC is nothing but memorials and statues, whereas the Arizona memorial is definately the remains of a once-proud warship.

There are many memorials around our country honouring those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. The cemetaries of our servicemen in Europe are also memorials. Arlington National Cemetary is the most sacred of the memorials. The rows and rows of markers bear witness to the many who must never be forgotten. A memorial to those who served in WW2 is most appropriate.
The surprise is why did it take so long? The veterans of Viet-Nam didn't have to wait more than 50 years. As a veteran of Viet-Nam the black wall is almost too much to bear but I'm thankful that we are memorialized.
