“Breathtaking”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Standing there looking at the entire platoon, the fear that was portrayed in their eyes was surreal. As you walk around, notice that no matter where you stop there is always a soldier looking at you. As you stand looking at the soldiers, facing the black granite wall, you can see their ghostly reflections in the wall. Simply stunning. I think it was the best of the Memorials because of how real it portrayed the soldiers in combat.

Reviewed March 8, 2014

This was informative. I learned things about the Korean War I didn't know. It was well laid out and attractive.

“Solemn, grim monuments to our otherwise forgotten heroes”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

We cannot adequately honor the vets of the Korean War for their sacrifice and valor, but this Monument assists us in doing so.

“wow”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

This memorial is really a very moving monument to this little-understood war. It is the most emotional of the monuments, in my opinion. Second would be the Vietnam war memorial. Incredible.
