kilroy was here!


There are many legends regarding the origin of the phrase and doodle "Kilroy was here." We found this one stamped on the World War II Monument.

I had forgotten about Kilroy. Even school kids doodled Kilroy.

It's also the title of a rather good Styx album about robots and the future.

We've been there - isn't it beautiful (didn't go in the heat)? Totally missed Kilroy. Where is he there? Tammi

Kilroy is over on the side of the monument near freedom wall with the stars & fountain. It's kind of hidden. There is a spot that looks almost like a service entrance or something on either side of the water outside of the monument on the reflecting pool side. I'll try to take better shots of that because I don't know how helpful that explanation really is....

I am the mother of the stonecarver that carved Kilroy onto the WWII. It's a fun thing to find, and yes-it is very well hidden.
