This is one the National Park Units. Disability parking is by the side roads and handles the other National Park Units. You will need about 1/2 hour to 1 hour depending on how many people there are.

I never quite know what to say when it comes to war memorials really they just speak for themselves. It is very powerful to stand there and think of all the people who lost their lives in this war.

My favorite war memorial on the mall. The eerie soldiers are especially striking at night when they almost seem to take life. This is especially the case on one of DC's many foggy and grey winter nights.

This memorial has a very unique appearance and definitely makes a strong impact on the visitor. The group of soldiers are scattered throughout, each appearing to walk toward an unknown focal point. A beautiful wall to the right of the figures reflects their positions amid varying scenes of people of different races and places.Recommended for:History Buffs

The Korean War Veterans Memorials is one of my favorite memorials in DC and is free to the public. It's marked by a triangular area with soldiers wearing covered rain gear area area wearily marching forward. The despondent look on their faces makes the effect of war personal and real.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

I liked the part of the monument with the statues of soldiers going through a field and the black wall. The rest of the memorial is less attractive and almost added as an afterthought.

This is a chilling memorial - with the wall on one side and the soldiers walking along on the other - it really makes an impression. Instead of names the wall has faces on it. As you walk along it the faces stand out and become clearer. The Korean War always seems to be eclipsed by the Vietnam War so it's nice to see a memorial that reminds of all those that served.

Of the countless memorials in DC, this is my favorite. To walk among these statues gives rise to thoughts of what it was like during the Korean War. The wall beside the memorial is etched with images of the roles many played in the field and at home. Very moving.
