The simplicity and realism of the soldiers set against the black marble is very dramatic and worth the effort to visit. One of my highlights on my city bus tour.

My dad fought in the Korean war but with Canada but I wanted to stop and see. It's a beautiful monument to all the men and women who fought for a country many didn't know anything about.

An excellent memorial to an often forgotten war. The figures emerging from the trees, with expressive faces. Lest we forget!

This exhibit is beautiful, featuring “action” statues of soldiers in combat, a fountain and a reflective wall. My only regret is that I did not see this exhibit in the evening when it is lit up and reflecting off of the wall.

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!
