Description


The statues representing the soldiers serving in the Korean War. These statues are among the most impressive items on the Washington Mall. I took this picture while my father [WWII-Vet.] and I were on an Honor Flight. Thanks for viewing my gallery. JC

I agree that these are tremendous statues. Each and every statue is different, with different faces, races, ages, representing a different role in the platoon. There are radiomen, riflemen, machinegun bearers, tripod and ammo carriers, point men, and leaders. I will post one more photo from this set showing some of the detail in the statues. The adjacent wall is also impressive. It is all engraves marble. When it gets wet, the images disappear.

I visited this lovely memorial a few years ago but lost all my photos last year when my laptop and back-up hard drive were stolen in a house hostage robbery. It is truly beautiful and I have a definite urge to go back. Really great image.

I'm so sorry to hear about the robbery. I understand your feelings of loss since 3 1/2 years ago, our home too, was robbed with all of our electronics taken. All family images were lost along with my more artistic images. In some cases, the only remaining copy I have of an image is that which is posted here at Renderosity.

such a touching and accurate depiction of soldiers freezing in the harsh winters of Korea. I use to know a Korean War veteran and he told me the only way he made it without having his feet to freeze was he carried a spare pair of socks in his coat. when his feet would perspire he would change socks. the pair he took off would be placed in his coat again to dry.

my brother in law that died about a year ago was a Korean Veteran also, but he stayed on a ship most of the time

Utterly cool depth and POV in this capture of the fabulously sculptured GIs negotiating the terrain. I served in the US Army during WWII, some of it in the Philippines under Gen Douglas MacArthur.
