I was quite taken by the Korean War Memorial. Unlike the others, this is a tribute to the men who fought the war. It depicts the soldiers walking through a rice paddy all on alert for the enemy that was around them.

While the others were interesting, I was moved the most by this memorial.

Address: Independence Avenue
Directions: Facing towards the Lincoln Memorial, the Koren Memorial is to the left of the reflecting pool.
