Very emotional monuments. The mood changes with the time of year but always a bit sombre ,sad , mysterious and very patriotic.

When I turned the corner and saw the men walking through the rice paddies, it felt as though you were right in their group as some were looking behind at you. This is as close as you could feel to knowing what it was like...More

My Dad served in Korea aboard the U.S.S. Boxer Aircraft Carrier so this was a must see memorial. It is really amazing. Great history!

This is a beautiful monument; well done and sobering. Its puts faces to the war, like a marching group of ghosts. If you are not into history and have limited time, stick to the museums, otherwise a good place to see.

This monument is better seen at night because the soldiers seem to come to life a bit more. The memorial contains 19 stainless steel statues that stand at 7 feet. Each one is different and seem lifelike. Next to the statues is a dark mural...More

This was a very moving memorial. It felt very reflective and sobering. There are nice benches to sit on and reflect

This one I found haunting looking into the faces of the the statues. It is a beautiful and quiet place of reflection, I recommend taking the time to walk though this and other near by memorials on a fair weather day.

This was a thoughtful monument but it was smaller than I thought it would be. The nearby World War II Memorial dwarfs it. Anyway it is worth seeing. Especially if you had a family member involved in the war.

wandered through here on a school trip in March. Was informative if not a little spooking at night. Still would recommend though.

Thank you for your service. There is no special daily event that is part of the monument although some service organizations meet there infrequently. Be advised that the winding path that ascends the monument has about 100... 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!

The memorials are free, if you want to go up into the Washington Monument I would find out what day you will be there and pay the small fee online and get them ASAP!!
