East Coast World War II Memorial
The monument consists of eight 19-foot tall pylons arranged in two rows of four, with a statue of a bronze eagle in the middle that is facing the Statue of Liberty. The name of each soldier who was lost in the Atlantic and the state he/she came from is inscribed on the pylons. It is one of three war memorials in the United States administered by the American Battlefield Monuments Commission. The others are the West Coast Memorial in San Francisco and the Honolulu Memorial.
