This memorial was crafted expertly and definitely puts you in the moment. It makes you think, reflect and realize the sacrifices which were made for us.

“Awesome tribute”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

Visited the site along with the Viet Nam Memorial and WWII Memorial at night. It's a wonderful experience to have the different perspective.

“History”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

Very well done and a must see. People do not often discuss the Korean conflict. I am very happy that a monument was built to honor the men and women who served

“A wonderful memorial to Korean Veterans”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

From a distance you see the 'soldiers' in their rain gear and it is haunting looking. Up close you can see all of the statues detail walking through the undergrowth with the wall of faces behind them. As we walked around them, we could imagine how realistic this would look if it had been raining. The wall is very well done as a backdrop to the figures. It wasn't possible on this trip but I would have loved to see this at night with the lights shining up onto each of the figures. One of the top three memorials we visited while there.
