Korean War Veterans Memorial
Again, we will get out of the Washington DC Tour bus to go to this emotional Memorial. The memorial’s Mural Wall measures 164 feet long and eight inches thick, Images of troops moving by sea, land and air are sandblasted onto the surface of the wall, while a squadron of 19 stainless steel figures, including members from each branch of the armed forces, are situated in the center of the memorial space.
When you view the 19 stainless steel figures reflected onto the granite wall, there appears to be 38 soldiers, which represents the 38th parallel, the dividing line of North and South Korea during the conflict.
