It's not that I'm a huge fan of the Korean Conflict (though I'm going to school with a number of Koreans who are extremely grateful that the U.S. was involved), but I think that this memorial is extremely striking, especially at night.
It's almost spooky and eerie. To me, it certainly does not glamorize war (as many memorials do).
I remember the first time I went there. The statues seemed to appear out of nowhere. And suddenly I was in the middle of it.
And the statues themselves look so realistic with the flowing ponchos right down to the combat boots. You can see the tired and drawn looks on the faces of the troopers. Most impressive.
Last year, my camera battery gave out right before we got to this memorial, and I promised pics. Finally, I can share my awe with you.
