The Pacific and European have theaters of operation with their major battles incribed in granite from a pool and fountain. Each state and territory that contributed or sent citizens into battle is noted. The most touching aspect of the memorial during our visit were the flowers and wreaths, with personal messages left in tribute by surviving veterans.
Combine this with a visit to the Lincoln Memorial and the Vietman Memorial. The closest Metro is the Smithsonian, so expect a significant walk. Since the Memorials are open 24/7, try for late afternoon or early evening if visiting in summer. Rangers are available until early evening.
