“My favourite Memorial in Washington”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

I think this memorial was incredibly well designed. I loved the way the reflections of the statues mingled in with the images of soldiers faces etched on the wall. It must be such an amazing experience to stumble across the face of a loved one. The visit was made even more memorable as on our journey to the U.S.A. we had a stopover in Seoul and spent the morning at the War Memorial of Korea.

“Beautiful work of art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

This monument is in the national mall, and is an amazing edition to it. Beautiful sculptures depicting a horrible time. This is well worth the visit, and best of all free of charge!

“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

This was such an amazing Memorial and one that nobody should miss. It is the only Memorial dedicated by two presidents, President Clinton, and the president of South Korea at that time. Worth the stop and will only take a few minutes to walk through if you don't take the guided tour.

I am embarrassed at how little I know about this way.

Outstanding Memorial. The soldiers eye follow you - haunting. I was glad to have visited this memorial.
