I had been to this memorial before - and had been impressed with the statues. I didn't pay much attention to the wall. Maybe it was the time of day and the way the light was hitting it. This time I was struck by the...More

I loved the statue memory garden. This is a beautiful area. Not as “monumental” as other tributes but special in its own unique way. This is within walking distance of the Lincoln and WWII Memorials and should be seen in conjunction with those sites.

Very moving Memorial you don't want to miss! The etchings on the wall are very detailed, as is the soldiers standing among the bushes

Had not seen this before today. The patrol depicted, advancing thru the vegetation is chill-inducing, but the back wall with the understated ghost images is amazing

My husband was in Korea as a Marine during this war. The Memorial brought tears to my eyes. Small Memorial but very poignant.

Different than the other memorials - its more peaceful and meditative. Lots of vegetation, small running pool, statutes and silhouette wall. I don't know anyone who participated in that war but it was well worth visiting and paying respects.

The soldiers all lined up was a touching tribute to the veterans. Nice stop at night. Easy to walk to from the Lincoln Monument.

We went to this memorial with Honor Flight Vets and it was truly an amazing experience. This memorial was something to see but better when seeing it through the eyes of a veteran. Every child and adult needs to see this memorial as well as...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!!
