This memorial is always so pretty in the summer. The faces on the wall and the statues are very inspiring.

Although I've been to DC a few times, I'd never visited this site, even though it's right next to the Lincoln Memorial. Don't miss it! It is absolutely beautiful in its design. 19 statues of soldiers, looking like they're moving through the jungle. So life-like, so breathtaking in its homage to those who served in Korea.

This Memorial is a very popular attraction in DC but not one that I would go out of the way for, to visit. The Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials are much more impressive in both architecture and meaning. However, this memorial is still a very nice place to pay homage to Korean War Veterans.

An installation of bronze soldiers [or other metal] crossing through a beautifully planted area. Just steps away from memorial reflecting pool.

The Korean War often gets left out of discussion in military history since it wasn't as clear to everyone our victory there. This is a memorial that is a little off the beaten path but so very worth the walk over. I recommend taking the walk right off from the Lincoln heading back towards the Washington Monument,
