Intent -- 2000 c 12: "It is the intent of the legislature to recognize the dedication of the men and women of Washington state who served or were wounded, killed, or missing in action during World War II by making a contribution towards the construction of a national World War II memorial to be located in Washington, D.C. The national World War II memorial will be the first national memorial dedicated to all who served during World War II. All military veterans of the war, the citizens on the home front, the nation at-large, and the high moral purpose and idealism that motivated the nation's call to arms will be honored with this memorial."
