The Korean War Veterans' Memorial is near the Lincoln Memorial on west end
of the Mall. It consists of 19 larger-than-life U.S. ground troopers
equipped for battle moving toward an American flag. Etched into the
granite are photographs of hundreds of faces taken from military
archives. This Memorial honors those Americans “who answered the call,
those who worked and fought under the most trying circumstances, and those
who gave their lives for the cause of freedom”.
