This was one of the most memorable monuments. The inscription next to it ‘freedom is not free’ was a reality check.

This memorial is dedicated to the "sons and daughters who answered the call to defend a country they never knew and a people they never met." I am grateful for their service since without their courage my family and I would not be here today....More

It is one of the newer memorials in DC so a lot of people go to it but it layout does not make it easy to access with large crowds. I recommend heading here first then the Lincoln or Vietnam memorial.

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!
