WWII Memorial Needs Update

I recently had the chance to go to DC for a conference and I ran across the World War II Memorial. While this memorial is a somber structure that conveys the sacrifices made by the American people, it lacks a certain focus.

The only thing missing is the fleet boat conning tower emerging from the middle of the reflecting pool. Maybe there needs to be a Submarine Memorial in Washington. Any suggestions?

I like the conning tower idea. What really needs to be fixed is the quote from FDRs speech the day after Pearl Harbour was bombeb, you know 'a day that will live in infamy..." speech. The inscription on the East wall left off the words so vital to all fighting men in this great soverifgn nation, ' help us, God.'
