    Come and honor a very special breed of American men and women who served and sacrificed their lives in Korea at the KOREAN WAR VETERANS' MEMORIAL, located not far off from the Lincoln Memorial. A special salute indeed to these mighty men and women of valour!

    There are many monuments around the city and most of them are very close together. Not far from the Lincoln Memorial is the Korean War Memorial. I thought this was a very interesting and unusual monument.

    I think I may have rambled on enough for one tip and will use this space to simply place the remaining photos. If you've read this far, thanks for taking the trip.

    This is the most moving memorial I have ever seen. Even Bill had tears in his eyes before we left.

    Alongside the statues is this wall etched with the face of soldiers, but as you can see also reflected in the wall is the statues of the soldiers. There are 19 statues of the foot soldiers.

    The life size figures placed throughout the memorial provide a strong sense of movement. You feel a sense of tension.
