“If given the opportunity, visit at sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The views were wonderful. Not the easiest place to get to without a local and their car, but well worth the trip.

“the walk was worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

it's a bit of a walk from arlington, but it was worth it. I've seen pictures of course, but it's so much more impressive in person!

“Difficult to "visit" ... WORTH seeing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

People of my post WWII "baby boom" generation are well aware of the significance of this memorial. Younger people may not be but SHOULD be. I did not begin to appreciate history until my 40s. History is incredibly important to ALL of us, all ages. This memorial, to the incredible bravery and valor of our Marines, is testimony and gratitude for "all gave some and some gave all" so we can have the freedoms that we do have.

“You'll be inspired.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The statue alone will leave you in awe. It represents so much of the heroism of the the men and woman who have fought to keep us free. A must see.
