Near the imposing Lincoln Memorial, a poignant and truly moving Korean War Veterans Memorial awaits visitors. Solemn faced soldiers wearing rain gears and holding arms gingerly marched forward through the shrubs like a virtual reality scene. When we went close to the soldiers, we could...More

The Korean War memorial is one of my favorites in DC. It’s just so well done and so powerful. The statutes of the soldiers are amazing - take the time to look at their expressions. And the sandblasted images in the wall are incredible. If...More

This is a beautiful memorial that you should stop off at when visiting the National Mall and the various sites. The memorial is a work of art and is very impressive.

Although this memorial is much smaller than others, it was the most impressive to me. Each soldier sculpted was amazing. It was as if each soldier was looking at me directly as I walked by.

My father in law fought in this war. He was upset that no one seemed to recognize his involvement and often spoke of how young the men were who died. There is no monument in the UK.

The place is breadth taking. The full size soldiers seem very real and you can easily feel what it could have been being up there. Everybody is quiet, respecting the courage of those who fought his war

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!
