Worth visiting and very different in style from the war memorials. Easily overlooked and not thought of by non Americans but shouldn’t miss it.

This is an awesome and unique memorial. Its a bit eerie to be honest. It will make you think and isnt that what its all about? Best War memorial by far, IMHO.

This is a very cleverly designed, intensely evocative memorial. It has two critical but separate parts - the life-size patrol recreation and the reflective wall. The overall effect is brilliant. Not to be missed.

This has to be one of the most thought provoking and moving war memorials I’ve every visited. It give a real sense of the struggle undertaken by the brave men and women who served.

We walked through the Korean War Memorial on our way to the Lincoln Memorial. It's not hard to get to and it is very inspiring to see. There are 19 soldiers walking through what we assume to be a rice paddy. No matter where you...More

One can't help but be impressed with the way America honours its veterans especially those who payed the supreme sacrifice.

I enjoyed visiting this memorial. It's not like the other memorials in DC. The symbolism of the 19 soldiers, their reflection and way soldiers were depicted is unique and memorable.

I found this memorial mesmerising and thought provoking. Didn’t actually know much about this war. Far larger than expected. Great memorial and so close to other iconic sites

? I didn’t say anything about Alan Alda so I don’t know where this is coming from. I think this is a beautiful, sacred memorial.

I feel certain that simply visiting / viewing this memorial and the figures presented will bring forth a flood of memories that only a veteran of this conflict would have. That alone is something special!
