I was surprised at my emotional response to looking into the faces of the realistic soldiers depicted trudging through a watery area. My husband served in Korea and said it was so typical of the terrain and a realistic picture of what the soldiers experienced....More

Part of the Mall of the Monuments tour. Given the other attractions on the tour, this was avoidable if you are not a history buff.

As one walks through the various memorials to those that paid the ultimate price to save others one can only ask"will they ever learn?"

If you are at the National Mall and on your way to the Lincoln Memorial you need to stop by for a quick visit. The details of the statues are incredible.

For some reason I had never seen this memorial. But it's worth a stop if you're on the mall. The statues in the brush were particularly moving.

This memorial is so unlike any others. The many statues of soldiers in posed in motion, and are placed randomly in the grass in a way that they look like they are cautiously advancing toward the enemy. It gives a feel of the real movement...More

This beautifully moving memorial has always been my favorite. It makes you feel as if you are in the field with them. And the display, by the fountains, of the very horrific casualty counts that were the result of this war.

Located a hundred yards from the Lincoln Memorial is the Korean War Veterans Memorial. I walked around the memorial statures and wall and was awed with each step. It consists of nineteen, 7-foot tall, stainless steel statues of an American advance party walking through the...More

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!
