Seeing the many soldiers with different expressions and jobs is awesome. This was one of the memorials I wanted to see most and it did not disappoint. It is within close walking distance to the Lincoln memorial. This is very well done.

Somewhat tucked away on the Mall, this is a stunning array of soldier statues that is best viewed from afar. Very moving.

This was by far my favorite monument. It gives a good glimpse of what it was like. It was cool to see the Korean people here paying respect to the war we fought in there behalf.

Saw this during a day tour and it was impressive. Seeing it again at night was even better. The layout is completely unique for a memorial.

There are a number of elements to this memorial, but what stands out are the statues of soldiers on patrol. The faces are haunting -- young men walking into the unknown. It's impossible to avoid comparing this monument to the Vietnam wall. I've always seen...More

I recommend that everyone not only visit this memorial during the day, but be sure to return after dark and you will see and appreciate it in a whole new prospective. In the dark it truly looks like these brave soldiers are rising up coming...More
