“Great Memorial”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

Simple and elegant, the statues are indicative of the US soldiers walking through rice paddies in Korea. Just beautiful, and a worthwhile stop near the Lincoln Memorial.

“Impactful”

The leaves were in full color and that in contrast to the Memorial was so striking.

facial expressions on soldiers is surreal -well laid out- easily spent a half hours just trying to understand what our war veterans went through

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

Brilliantly maintained and beautiful to look at. People of Washington keep it live by leaving fresh flowers in the memory of the soliers who lost their lives in this war.
