We were visiting on the day of President Bush's funeral. There were very few visitors. The soldier sculptures are reflected in the black granite wall. The figures are big and each face is tense and anxious in expression. The wall has etchings in it and...More

You can quickly catch the gist of this while walking east from the Lincoln Memorial, but the feelings it instills will dwell with you long after you leave it. The Korean Conflict was a long horror story encapsulating the best and worst of the US...More

My favorite monument in DC! The misery captured in the faces and body language of the statues is amazing. I prefer to see this monument at night for effect but it’s great in the day also.

This is one of my favorite memorials. Look at it from all directions and the bronze statues will look different. Go back at night to get a totally different feel. Walk along the wall to see all of the reflections sand blasted in.

The Korean War was a major war and this monument is a fitting and very moving memorial. My husband served in that war and says it captures the harshness of the terrain and weather, as well as the courage of the soldiers. Truly worth a...More

Walk through this and take a moment to think about a brutal conflict that doesn't get as much attention as the other ones. And think about the people that went and never came back. Walking among the statues and looking at the faces helps with...More

? I didn’t say anything about Alan Alda so I don’t know where this is coming from. I think this is a beautiful, sacred memorial.

I feel certain that simply visiting / viewing this memorial and the figures presented will bring forth a flood of memories that only a veteran of this conflict would have. That alone is something special!

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!
