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.
