Korea War Memorial

Wash DC Flag

This was so moving.   The features on the faces so real, so tense, you feel like you are on patrol with them.

click on the photo to see more about it.

On one side they have carved in marble all the countries that fought in Korea, the number of men killed and wounded by each.  The second wall starts with this inscription, and then continues to the right inscribed with scenes from in-country for all the branches of the military.

A face that has seen combat.
the platoon moving thru the country side.  This looks like the Sergeant.

Look at the face of this man on point. He has been there too long.  All of them look gaunt and have the million-mile stare. They have seen combat.
