This memorial is part of the National Mall and you can easily walk to see it. The statues are a bit creepy to see.

Visit this memorial after sunset if you can..... it is strikingly eerie at night. Worth the short walk from the Lincoln memorial..... don't miss it!

This was a beautifully done piece to commemorate the service of so many men in the Korean Conflict. It was a great opportunity to visit, however I would recommend going elsewhere if you're going to meet an Uber.

The eerie stares of the soldiers no matter where you stand, the sandblasted faces of actual soldiers of all types on the walls, the water, the countries, the whole memorial just sinks into you. It is a must see. If you take a guide they...More

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!
