One word excellent! To see such a massive monument showing respect for the battles the Marines have been a part of is just heart warming.

Don't miss stopping by this emotional and thoughtful memorial. It is a great opportunity to talk to your children about the human side of war.

“Must see at night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

We took a moonlight bus tour that included this Memorial. Our driver knew all of the men's names that were in the memorial. He also knew their "stories". This is a must see.

“Very striking, iconic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Just a short walk from Arlington cemetery. I went over to see it. Like the historic photo it sticks in the mind. A fitting tribute and a must for any history buffs.

“Worth the time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

It does not take long to view this iconic memorial. Most people know it as the Iwo Jima Memorial. It is impressive because of its size. The pride the Marine Corps is famous for is evident. I am glad we took the time to go here.
