I find that this is one of the most striking of all the monuments. It's location makes it easy to visit while walking the other memorials. As with the other war memorials, the imagery creates a solid talking point to discuss history with children.
After WWII and before Vietnam our men and women in uniform fought in the Korean War. The Korean War Memorial is a quiet understated but stunning tribute. Life size bronze soldiers advance in rows with natural ground cover. Walking among them adds to the sense...More

Are the kids good walkers? Day Two requires a lot of walking. It is from one end of The National Mall to another. Download the map of The National Mall at home now. You will see for yourself how the tourist sites are grouped. April is a lovely time to visit.
Memorials / The price of freedom (2 Replies)
Freedom is Not Free, is written at the Korean War Veterans Memorial. I´m sure I read somewhere : The price of freedom is not free. Does anybody know where that might be ? Thank you
