Faces of korean war

With all the memorials scattered around the Capital, it is hard to keep each war or president correct. There are so many dates and names and places. But, when you just take in the actual memorial and the architecture behind it and see the beauty, you can get more out of it.

The Korean War Memorial, it a good example of this type of memorial. It is easy to get lost in it, because of the actual faces designed on the granite wall and on the life size statutes. There are 19 soldiers in full combat uniform statutes walking through a planted area and it removes you from being in DC and takes you back to what it must have looked like in the war. Each soldier is from a different branch of the military that fought in the Korean War. Looking into the faces of the statues is a bit eery but it is very touching. Surrounding the military statues is a wall full of faces of real soldiers from the war, as well as a tranquil pond.

This memorial is one of the youngest memorials in DC, and it is very apparent with the faces etched in the stone as well as the design behind it all. It is really neat to see the growth artistically of the memorials have come over the years, and how each one reaches you differently.

The forgotten war.

Most Americans tend to think that the greatest pain that was inflicted on the mother country was to bleed American war in Vietnam. But only in the background is reminiscent of the Korean War and for many, especially for his veterans would remain forgotten. So, they decided to raise funds and erect a monument to recognize its heroes, its martyrs and its saints. The Veterans Memorial Korean War Memorial is close to Lincoln, so usually visit before or after him. Opened in 1995, kept alive in the memory of the American people and all who visit foreign slaughter of 5.8 million Americans who served in the Army for three years during the Korean War. Of these, about 55,000 died or were reported missing. To make your memory disappear as your body, to enter the premises we are 19 stainless steel sculptures representing the three bodies of the American army and the ethnic groups that make up the American people. The battalion appears to move through the rice fields of Korea ponchos flapping in the wind .. Beside her, a gleaming granite wall, consisting of 41 panels, underlies and supports 2,400 photographs arranged after passing computer were enhanced by art computers to give a uniform lighting effect and the desired size. The mural, depicted as in the case of the sculptures, the three army corps. In front of the wall and in various corners of the site, lots of flowers and personal items remember those who fought for freedom. As an inscription: "Freedom is not free."

La guerra olvidada.

La mayoría de los americanos suele pensar que el mayor dolor que se le infligió a la Madre Patria Americana fue desangrarla con la guerra de Vietnam. Pero sólo en un segundo plano se recuerda a la guerra de Corea y para muchos, sobre todo para sus veteranos permanece olvidada.
Por eso, decidieron recaudar fondos y levantar un monumento que reconociera a sus héroes, a sus mártires y a sus santos.
El Memorial de Veteranos de la Guerra de Corea está muy cerca del monumento a Lincoln, por lo que se suele visitar antes o después de él. Inaugurado en 1995, mantiene vivo en la memoria del pueblo americano y de todo foráneo que lo visita el sacrificio de los 5,8 millones de americanos que sirvieron en el ejército durante los tres años que duró la guerra de Corea. De ellos, cerca de 55.000 murieron o fueron declarados desaparecidos.
Para que su memoria no desapareciera como su cuerpo, al entrar al recinto nos reciben 19 esculturas de acero inoxidable que representan a los tres cuerpos del ejército estadounidense y las etnias que conforman el pueblo americano. El batallón parece avanzar por los campos de arroz de Corea con los ponchos ondeando al viento..
A su lado, una gran pared de brillante granito, formada por 41 paneles, sirve de base y soporte para las 2.400 fotografías que tras pasar por arreglos informáticos fueron realzadas por computadoras de última generación para dar un efecto de iluminación uniforme y el tamaño deseado. El mural, representa como en el caso de las esculturas, los tres cuerpos del ejército.
Delante de la pared y en varios rincones del sitio, multitud de flores y objetos personales recuerdan aquellos que lucharon por la libertad.
Como reza una inscripción: " La Libertad no es gratuita".

Situated in the heart of the national...

Situated in the heart of the National Mall in Washington federally capital and symmetrical to Korean War Veterans Memorial, Korean War Memorial veterans is a leading mmoriaux "historic" the Mall, and one of the most remarkable. This is in reality three different mmoriaux, wall imagined by tudiante and gathering the names of 54,000 Americans soldiers tombs during this war, a statue of three soldiers and another life-size monument, a little cart, honoring the women involved in this conflict. A cultural and historical tour once, not to be missed.

Situé en plein cœur du National Mall dans la capitale fédérale de Washington, et symétrique au Korean War Veterans Memorial, le Korean War veterans Memorial est l'un des principaux mémoriaux "historiques" du Mall, et l'un des plus remarquables. Il s'agit en réalité de trois mémoriaux différents, un mur imaginé par une étudiante et regroupant les noms des 54000 soldats américains tombés pendant cette guerre, une statue de 3 soldats grandeur nature ainsi qu'un autre monument, un peu à l'écart, rendant hommage aux femmes impliquées dans ce conflit. Une visite culturelle et historique à la fois, à ne pas manquer.

Situé à quelques encablures seulement du très célèbre Lincoln Memorial, sur la partie Ouest du National Mall, le Korean War Veterans Memorial est l'un des principaux mémoriaux de la ville, à ne pas manquer. Il rend en effet hommage, par le biais de statues de plomb grandeur nature représentant les hommes engagés dans la guerre de Corée entre 1950 et 1953 (plus de 58 000 Américains tout de même) armés et avançant contre l'ennemi, à tous les courageux soldats américains. Une parenthèse historique remarquable.

A memorial to the lost

It is one of many memorials outdoors that we see in Washington and one of the most liked. Dedicated to the men and women who fought in the Korean War which lasted three years between 1950 and 1953 has the shape of a triangle crowned with a circular lake. This same triangle represents a field and has steel statues representing nineteen soldiers advancing on the ground. One of the side is one of the most interesting part of this memorial, a wall of granite engraved with various images. There are over two thousand photos taken from the National Archives of Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard.

Um memorial a não perder

É um dos muitos memoriais ao ar livre que podemos ver em Washington e um dos que mais gostei. Dedicado aos homens e mulheres que combateram na Guerra da Coreia que durou três anos entre 1950 e 1953 tem a forma de um triângulo coroado com um lago circular. Esse mesmo triângulo representa um campo e tem dezanove estátuas em aço representando soldados avançando no terreno. Numa das laterais está uma das parte mais interessantes de este memorial, uma parede de granito com várias imagens gravadas. São mais de duas mil fotos retiradas dos arquivos nacionais de soldados do Exército, da Marinha, da Força Aérea e Guarda Costeira.

War memorial

Americans do a lot of wars gave some opportunity for artists to express themselves! Thus, southeast of the Lincoln Memorial in the nation's capital, two memorials, one of the Vietnam War and, nearby, the "Korean War Veterans Memorial" is encountered. Very realistic, a group of statues progressing field of war, while thousands of faces haunt a memorial wall. The memorial pays tribute to U.S. soldiers who fought in the Korean War (1950-1953). It was inaugurated in 1995 by President Bill Clinton and Kim Young Sam, president of South Korea

Monument aux morts

Les Américains font beaucoup de guerres : certaines ont donné l'occasion à des artistes de s'exprimer !!
Ainsi, au sud-est du Lincoln Memorial, dans la capitale fédérale, on rencontre deux monuments aux morts, celui de la Guerre du Vietnam et, non loin, le "Korean War Veterans Memorial" .
Très réaliste, un regroupement de statues progresse en champ de guerre, tandis que des milliers de visages hantent un mur funèbre.
Ce mémorial rend hommage aux soldats des États-Unis qui ont combattu pendant la Guerre de Corée (1950-1953). Il fut inauguré en 1995 par le président Bill Clinton et Kim Young Sam, président de la Corée du Sud

Pure realism

This was my first time in Washington and not really ceased to amaze, habamos to Arlington, honoring the fallen and Kennedy of course, but when we got to the park and see those twenty spectral figures, encapotadas and full of fear was to see and feel what Haban those who suffered fra boys in Korea. Not wasted face of terror last soldier !!

Realismo puro

Esta era mi primera vez en Washington y realmente no dejaba de sorprenderme, habíamos estado en Arlington, honrando a los caidos y a Kennedy por supuesto, pero cuando llegamos al parque y ver aquellas veinte figuras espectrales, encapotadas y llenas de miedo fue ver y sentir lo que habían sufrido aquellos muchachos en la fría Corea. No tiene desperdicio la cara de terror del último soldado!!
