A location in D.C. has been selected for a new memorial dedicated to fallen journalists.
The Fallen Journalists Memorial Foundation said Monday that the memorial is going on a triangle of land at the corner of 3rd Street SW and Independence Avenue, where it’s bounded by Maryland Avenue SW. That puts the memorial on the National Mall facing the U.S. Capitol.
The memorial, nearly four years in the making, was authorized in late December during the most recent federal appropriations process.
