I thought this sight really captured the essence of the soldiers who sacrificed all for our country. I was honored as a veteran to see how the Korean War Veterans were honored here. Freedom is not free.

We wanted to see this at night to repeat a prior viewing. It was still quite moving, but the lighting was too dimmed because the shrubs needed a trim. It is a wonderful way to represent the brave service people who served.

There are many monuments and memorials in Washington DC. I felt this was unique due to the different parts, such as the etched granite wall which depicts various soldiers. The statues communicate feelings that words cannot describe.

There is so much to see for free, that you will not have to pay for much. Eating is not the cheapest anywhere, but you're in DC. They're spending your money faster than you can! Enjoy!
