Great tribute.

Very well done. Very meaningful. The statues almost come to life and you can feel the cold and rain.

This monument really honors the people that fought this war. It has several statues depicting soldiers in the field. You can look into their eyes and feel the tension of war.

This is a very neat memorial. It has two parts. The wall of faces, and the statues that resemble the soldiers that are on a patrol. Its often busy, but easily accessible.

Incredibly powerful and moving, larger than life figures frozen in time. Only regret we didn't see it at night as I'm sure the lighting would be stunning.

One of the BEST memorials in DC- extremely moving with many statues of soldiers trudging through the grass, it is a spectacular sight to see.

The placement of the statues into the landscape was amazing. We went on a Monday and it was bustling with people. A very solemn experience and worth visiting.

For those soldier who fought in this war and were not recognised for their efforts by fellow country men at the time and the memorial was only erected well after the Vietnam Memorial I thought it was fantastic. Definitely one of my highlights in Washington. Especially being an Australian whose countrymen fought along side your Countrymen. Important war for us.
