The Real Blades of Glory

Detail, World War II Memorial, West Capitol Campus


The bronze blades that form this part of the memorial feature ghostlike images of servicemen, which are actually formed using the etched names of Washington State’s war casualties.

Modern, beautifully simple.

I am very curious about this name "Olympia". Do you know something a history of this name?
