The eagle has the dates of 1941-1945 representing the times the war was going on. The walls with the names are to commemorate all of the soldiers who passed in a special way. There are a total of six walls with names in both front and back of them. The eagle is facing the direction of the Statue of Liberty which makes it more symbolic to the American people. President John F. Kennedy and the federal government were the persons who funded this commemoration.
