Very moving. All of the pictures in the wall are from real photos. Take the time to look at all the detail. It's a must see!

“You must visit..”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

The Korean War Vets Memorial doesn't get quite the attention of the other memorials, however it's really incredibly well done. I'd suggest reading up on the design so you get a richer experience. Please take the time to visit and reflect on the sacrifices.

“Don't miss it”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

This memorial is very special, go there. Since it is located so close to all the other Memorials you can do them all in ½ day. We took a bike to see all the memorial including Arlington National Cemetary, but this Korean Memorial was the most amazing.

“Ok memorial”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Part of the walk if you visit the Lincoln memorial and reflecting pool, this is a good place to swing by. It's basically a very small park with several statues depicting a platoon at the 38th parallel. And a unique carving along the wall with the faces of soldiers. Catch the ranger and you'll probably have more insight to the war and memorial. Love the quote there, "Freedom is not free"

“A lovely Memorial.”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We saw this memorial as part of a private tour of DC. Very glad we included this one. It is very moving, and vast. Lots of detail in the statues, and it looks amazing at night also.
