The winning design has been announced for the questionably legitimate National Iraq War Memorial. From the winning entry’s statment of purpose:
This is a memorial to our soldiers. That is it. I don’t care about the politics.
Scattered across the site will be video screens of all sizes. Displayed on these screens will be ever-changing series of photos and digital video (with audio if available) of those who died in Iraq. These images will be from their families and friends, some will be official military portraits. This memorial shouldn’t have vague symbols or angry rantings. Americans must know these soldiers. Names on a wall aren’t good enough! Visitors must see them.
If you’re looking for “vague symbols or angry rantings,” check out the competition gallery.
