There is much that is familiar in Washington, DC.
There are memorials to Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and Martin Luther King as well as reminders of World Wars I and II and the Vietnam War.
All are inspiring, but for me nothing stands out like the Korean War Memorial with its bigger than life figures that are hauntingly realistic. Garbed in battle attire covered by ponchos to protect from monsoon rains, the ghostly figures represent a nighttime patrol seemingly ready for combat.
Next time you are in Washington, DC, don’t miss going to this stunning installation. I can’t imagine your not being moved.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
