KOREAN WAR MEMORIAL WASHINGTON D.C.
This shot was taken late in the day looking at the
wall that is part of the Korean Wall Memorial. In the face of the wall is
etched images of people that were submitted to the architects of the wall. It
represents all of the different services that were involved in the so called
POLICE ACTION. The memorial is also composed of the statues of the
fighting men of all the services involved. The reflection on the wall is of the
statues of the men along with the Lincoln Memorial that is to the west which
has the sun setting in back of it.
This is several of the statues of the men on a patrol. They are
representative of all the men of each of the services. Some are wearing their
cold weather gear and some are wearing warm weather clothing. They all have the
gaunt look that all fighters have when any war has carried on for to long. In
VIETNAM we referred to it as The Thousand Yard
This is the dedication stone.
This is several of the fighting men. They are all on patrol and
at the rear the last man is looking over his shoulder to make sure that no one
is left behind
These are two different views during the summer. The one BELOW
shows the wall and it's reflective abilities. The bald tourist is me taking the
picture. The men on the patrol are in back of me. The view ABOVE is taken from
the back of the memorial facing forward. It goes up through the men on patrol
to the flag and a pond.
