WASHINGTON -- 645,000 poppies are placed on the National Mall in honor of the 645,000 plus American service men and women who've given their lives for freedom. 

The USAA Poppy Wall of Honor returned for the second year on the National Mall this Memorial Day weekend. The wall is located on the southwest side of the Reflecting Pool.
