Wow! This is very moving...the statues in this display appear to look right through you! The displays depicted scenes and people that played a part in the war.

We need to remember the Korean War for many reasons. But the memorial is very stark and the juniper bushes are inappropriate. The was one of those wars we tried to manipulate from Washington, and was an abject failure. A bit more information and displays...More

There is so much to see for free, that you will not have to pay for much. Eating is not the cheapest anywhere, but you're in DC. They're spending your money faster than you can! Enjoy!
