The 19 stainless steel figures represent the various branches of the armed forces and depict a cross-section of the various ethnic groups who fought. The Pool of Remembrance has inscriptions that list the number of soldiers killed, wounded, missing in action,and held as prisoners.

I went to see the Lincoln Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial. Both are impressive but the Korean Memorial really was equally impressive. The realism of the platoon set in the woods was very striking.

My father served in The Korean conflict. The statues of soldiers representing every allied country involved struck me as an attempt to pay tribute accordingly. However, the simplistic conception misses the mark in terms of the complexities of the situation. Perhaps it is appropriate nonetheless,...More

Seeing this in the twilight of evening gives one a feeling of creepiness, that the statues are "ghosts" turning their heads to look back on those of us who were not part of their heroic efforts. Much more moving than the World War II memorial.

Anyone who has ever travelled in platoon formation will feel a chill looking at this memorial, and the ghost images of former Korean veterans watching from the wall is something to see

If your'e going to be checking out the many monuments that DC has to offer than this one is a must see. It's chilling and powerful however I felt it wasn't as well mainted as the other monuments. Still a must see though!

Loved this memorial. The soldiers with distinct expressions clearly visible was so memorable. One of my favorite memorials that I visited during my visit.

Well done memorial to the soldiers of the Korean War. Feature soldiers on patrol , and given the numbers of dead injured or missing, as well as those of the UN soldiers. Very moving.

Have visited here several times both during the day and at night and have always been moved by the memorial. The memorial seems to come alive with the statues of the soldiers. A visit at night creates a different perspective with the statutes of the...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!
