Also known as the Iwo Jima memeorial, this masterpiece is dedicated to all war heroes who died in battle since 1775. Its easily accessible from the Arlington national cemetary, in fact it's a must see section of it.

What a great memorial. The huge bronze sculpture is fantastic. Couldn't get enough pictures from different angles. A must see when in DC or northern Virginia.

Myself being a Marine this was the most amazing memorial to see. Walking around the memorial reading all the conflicts and wars the Marine Corps has been involved in to protect this country and freedom around the world. Gave me a great sense of pride to be counted among the few.

Stopped here during a visit with my dad and three bus loads of veterans. It was an amazing sight to see. There is an optical illusion to watch for.

A permanent tribute to the brave men of the United States Marine Corp. A great lesson in leadership, perseverance, courage and commitment beyond self. Do not let the history books rewrite the story this Memorial. A great time of reflection concerning the men and families who rose above all circumstances to defeat evil.

I saw this monument at night, lit up and spectacular. It is so famous and so much a part of USA history, it is a "must" to see.

Very easy to check this one out once you've finished at the cemetery as it's basically on your way back north. Quite an experience to see such a well known statue up close.
