The Iwo Jima memorial as with all the memorial monuments and statues in Arlington and Washington is not only impressive but also kept in immaculate condition. This is an iconic memorial that should not be missed when visiting Arlington Cemetry, the Air Force Memorial or The Pentagon as they are all just a stones throw away from each other by... More

This is an often overlooked memorial along with the USMC Chapel at Quantico. The shapes serve to honor the flag raising at Mount Suribachi during WWII in the Pacific Theater.

A must see attraction. Consider parking by memorial and walking to side entrance of Arlington Cemetery.

This wonderful tribute to the United State Marines is located in Virginia next to Arlington National Cemetery just across the river from the Lincoln Memorial. Walk or drive around this life like sculpture with a real United States flag flying in the breeze and, due to the realistic creativeness of the artist, you watch the marines raise the Stars and...

It is not directly on the Mall so it may be considered a little out of the way, but it is a nice little area to visit the memorial, Netherlands Bell Tower (which has beautiful flowers much of the year), and is right next to an entrance into the Arlington Cemetery. Also a great hill overlooking the river and downtown... More

I had seen many images of this monument, but I was not prepared when we visited it. It took my breath away. It was larger than I though it would be. The pedestal it sits on is huge. The statue is just amazing. Can't really put it into words. The detail of the soldiers is magnificent. I found it an... More

When you are in Washington DC this is a must do, along with Arlington National Cemetery, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, JFK's grave with the eternal flame.

Iwo Jima monument that is only about three blocks away from our hotel (Iwo Jima best western). For those of you who do not know, the Monument is a 100 X larger than life bronze of the four Marines and one Navy Core man that raised the flag on Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima during WW II. Noticing that the... More
