“National memorial tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

We visited this memorial the day after my grandfather's internment at the Quantico National Cemetery. It was very moving, as he was a Korean war veteran. We are coming back and will be sure to visit this again.

“HAUNTING”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

With my time in Washington limited, this memorial was not on the top of my list to visit. But this memorial moved me more than any other I had seen. When I saw the figures in the grass, it was very eerie and I felt I was there with them in the fields. The faces on the wall were haunting. It made a great impression on me and I will not forget it.

“Powerful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is well worth a look, not the most known. I was here in an early September morning. I found it very moving and powerful. You just find yourself transfixed. As a Brit, I have to say my knowledge of this war is shamefully not great. This memorial inspired me to look into the history of this war. Which can only be a good thing.

“Moving memorial”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

This little known war was horrific as all wars are. This particular memorial vividly portrays the soldiers tromping through the fields. Although none are wounded or dying, the feeling of misery and despair is evident.

“you should go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Korean War Memorial is very touching with the ghost-like statues. The reflection on the wall makes you feel as if an entire troop is marching. Worth the visit.
