Nice sculpture and memorial in the memory of Korean war heroes. It carries a bit of history and is depicted by a unique presentation of the memorial.

I liked the concept of it. The idea of the soldiers walking into combat and their faces showing their concerns is very emotional. It's just south if the Vietnam Memorial and there is a nice pool to it also.

It was very well built and displayed, found it to be a very sombre area definitely worth a visit if you have time.

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!
