Live on in memories, Korean War Veterans

This memorial makes you tear up. It is so realistic. The men are actually in the fields fighting for our freedom. Well done.

I had never ever could imagine that this memorial would be so emotional for us. The memorial is an astonishing sculpture composition and forms a great garden flowing into another memorial. Great place to spend many-many hours, very educational too.

Haunting, but in a good way. Very powerful especially if you go see it at night, or if you've got an early AM fog.

This little-known memorial is but a few minutes walk from the Vietnam Memorial and is outstanding!! You are in the middle of a platoon on patrol in war-torn Korea. You walk among 19 life size steel statues and, if you happened to visit on a foggy morning, the men seem to come to life, emerging slowly, every man on full... More

Very interesting memorial done in a way so it looks like the troops are walking through the Korean jungle. Check out their reflection on the black wall also.

This memorial is so well done and it looks like you are part of a battle scene. This was my third visit here and I am still so inspired and impressed. I think this is a fitting tribute to those who served. Once I visited when it was a bit misty and the memorial really came more to life than... More

Memorial is great. The soldiers walking through the bushes is quite artistic. Definitely worth the stop along with all the other DC memorials.
