Washington DC, the Korean War Veterans Memorial


The Korean War Veterans Memorial consists of several bronze soldiers walking through a triangle-shaped field, and a granite wall with the names of those who served the Korean War. The war started in 1950 between North and South korea. North Korea was supported by the People's Republic of China, and limitedly by the Soviet Union. South Korea was supported by the United Nations Command, formed mainly by US troops. The war ended in a Stalemate in June 1953, when a cease-fire was established. Korea is since then divided by the 38th parallel.

Walking West from the Korea Memorial, you will get to the Lincoln Memorial.
