I visited this Memorial during a twilight bus tour in early January and it was in the late evening. It was really beautiful how each state is represented in memory of those that were lost for that state. The main fountain was off. In the winter months all DC fountains are turned off so they do not freeze. It would... More

This is a must see Memorial. Every state is represented. the wall of stars made me cry. There was an older man there when I was. He was very emotional too. Lets not repeat history.

A wonderful monument. It has many different features - columns, wreaths, water, yet it all blends together for a very respectful and moving presentation. As my father and seven of my uncles all served, I looked forward to this for a long time.

This has been a longtime coming, and completes the war memorials to the Korean and Vietnam Wars, to commemorate the major conflicts (save WWI) in 20th century American history.

I have been to this memorial numerous times and it is one of my favorites. It is so well done and meaningful to so many. I was there over Veterans Day and it was amazing to see the veterans that fought in the war being honored and how much respect they received. I love how each region/state is represented.

A very well designed and fitting tribute to the glorious dead. The USA has some of the best memorials to the fallen and this is one of them. Its in between the washington monument and the Lincoln memorial.

Even without the fountains, this place is a large memorial site with a great view looking down to the Lincoln memorial

The architecture and design of this memorial is stunning. I love the panels that tell a story and the quotes. It is so beautiful.
