After a visit to the Lincoln Memorial I saw the Korean War Veterans Memorial information kiosk just southeast of the memorial's stairs. Apart from information leaflets on the memorial there are computers which list the names of American service personnel killed, mortally wounded or missing in action in Korea. If you want you may print part of that long list. I didn't, I walked a paved path through the park with beautiful fall trees towards the memorial.

The green space in the western part of the National Mall, between the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument is divided by longitudinal Reflecting Pool into northern part called Constitution Gardens (Vietnam Veterans Memorial there) and southern part called West Potomac Park where Korean War Veterans Memorial is placed.
