Long Description:
According to Wikipedia, Kilroy Was Here is an American popular culture expression, often seen in graffiti. Its origins are open to speculation, but recognition of it and the distinctive doodle of "Kilroy" peeking over a wall is known almost everywhere among U.S. residents who lived during World War II through the Korean War. He is difficult to find at the WWII Memorial but well worth the effort.

On the outside wall of the memorial are two golden gates. There is a Kilroy Was Here engraving behind each of them. This Kilroy is located behind the golden gate next to the Pennsylvania pillar. Waymarker Marine Biologist posted the one next to the Delaware pillar.

Instructions for logging waymark: A photograph is required of you (or your GPS receiver, if you are waymarking solo) and Kilroy Was Here.
