If you are standing in front of the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, and you are facing St. Charles Avenue, you will see Lee Circle. The circle is clearly visibly and it is approximately 100 yards away.

If you are proud of our Greatest Generation, you may wonder — what should be on that circle?

I suggest a Greatest Generation Circle/Monument. Such a structure, on this large circle, could easily honor President Franklin D. Roosevelt, President Harry S. Truman, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, Adm. William Halsey and each of our World War II Medal of Honor heroes — all representing those who sacrificed for our nation during this world war.

Such a monument will have national and world significance, and national and world interest, for many centuries into the future.

So, you may also wonder, who will pay for this? The answer is the same veterans, patriots, supporters, volunteers and donors who so strongly support our National World War II Museum.
