PLAZA OF PRESIDENTS

Before visiting the George Bush Gallery, take a moment to pause and reflect at the Plaza of Presidents, a striking outdoor tribute to the ten American presidents who served in the armed forces during WWII. 

 

The stone monuments hold bronze plaques describing each president's WWII military service, from Franklin Roosevelt through George H.W. Bush.
