Walking around seeing the memorial, you get an eerie feeling. Statues of soldiers makes you feel like you're in battle with them. A must see stop on the National Mall grounds.

Being a vet, retired Army , I find the various monuments honoring our veterans of all Branches to be a perfect place to remember our fallen friends.

The monument seems to miss an opportunity to educate the public about a conflict that many Americans Don't know much about beyond what they learned by watching MASH on television.

Very unique in design and layout. The features of the 'soldiers" were very detailed. A quiet and solemn location if people would respect the site accordingly. You don't want to miss this site.

These museums are amazing to see just for the fact that it is a way to honor our men and women who served so courageously and selfless.

Lesser known than the Vietnam struggle, but the memorial, I think, is VERY well done. The wall showing faces of those lost to this conflict, the slightly larger than life representatives of casualties frozen in front of you...it's haunting and mesmerizing. Not as crowded as...More

Had no idea what to expect from this memorial. It is a beautiful Memorial to those who served in the Korean War.

I know very little about the Korean War personally. While walking from the Lincoln Memorial I saw this off to the side and was kind of intrigued. We walked around it and I was impressed by the details and the work put into the memorial....More

All of the memorials are beautifully done. They are all close together and you should see each one. You are lead though each war/battle and see the difference in uniforms and they areas you can read some facts about each area.

The memorial cleverly captures the moment that was known to so many who served. The patrol of figures advancing is an accurate and instantly recognisable portrayal. It is a beautiful interpretation enhanced with emblems of many international units who took part in that conflict

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!
