Washington's National Mall has a lot of wonderful memorials. The Korean War Veterans Memorial is located near the Lincoln Memorial and was dedicated in 1995. It commemorates the sacrifices of almost 6 million Americans in the U.S. armed services during the Korean War (1950-53). 36,574 Americans died in the Korean War including 8,200 missing in action.
There are 19 stainless steel statues in the memorial, approximately seven feet tall, a mix of ethnicities and service divisions. The statues stand in patches of Juniper bushes separated by granite strips, resembling the rice paddies of Korea. The granite wall lists names and has interesting holographic art.
