The United States Marine Corps War Memorial represents this nation's gratitude to Marines and those who have fought beside them. While the statue depicts one of the most famous incidents of World War II, the memorial is dedicated to all Marines who have given their lives in the...
All American, 24-7; This is one of the few official sites where the American Flag is required to be flown at all times.
Look closely around the base of the memorial – the location and date of every major Marine Corps engagement to date is inscribed there.
OUTSTANDING!!!!!!! All Marines must visit this place of honor.
Have your kids count the hands of the soldiers raising the flag together— there's an extra one! Powered by ParentsConnect.com
This is the United States of America. The greatest nation in the world.
From here you can see the State Capitol, Washington Memorial, and Lincoln Memorial all bunched up together. It's an awesome view!
Visit this location during the summer at 7pm for the sunset performance of the Marine Corps Band, they also practice at 7:30 am in the same spot.
Stunning - a must see.
BY far My Favorite Statue!!, this should be where the Statue Liberty Is so when foreigners come they know NOT to F with U.S.
Great place to watch the fireworks over DC for the 4th of July. Get there early to snag a place in front of the bell tower!
Great park and view of the monuments across the river. Dont forget to go to the Netherlands Carillon if you are here, especially if the tulips are in bloom
Make sure you get the view that frames the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial in the background!
A must see for all "USMC" veterans!
The USMC Drum and Bugle Corps. Not band.
Free: Every Tuesday summer evening there is a Marine Corp Parade..be there by 630.
Best view looking out over the city
This is a great spot to watch the fireworks in D.C. on the Fourth of July!
Be sure to check the detailing on the faces. Beautiful.
Killing anything that moves since 1776!
The 13th hand thing is bullshit. Count them.
Amazing memorial! Must see!!
More than just the memorial. The surrounding park is beautiful and a great place for a picnic. Excellent views of DC.
Worth the walk but leave it till last as it is a short walk from here to Roslyn metro stop to get you back into Washington. Or if you have the energy, walk to DC across the bridge from here
See it at night on the Monuments by Moonlight trolley tour.
Go in the summer on Tuesday evening to the memorial and see the sunset ceremony with the marine corp band. Starts @ 6:30pm.
My all time favorite
Optical illusion; walk around the memorial and watch the flag. It looks like it's being raised.
A Must see for ALL Veterans.
A must see if you're near DC.
There in fact are 11 hands, it is NOT a viral myth!!!
a great place to catch the july 4 fireworks w/o the hassle if going into the city. free parking at the arlington courthouse & a 10-12 minute walk from there.
Drunken Ira Hayes is the guy in the back.
God bless the USMC
A great view
Finally the finish line!
Make sure to count the hands!! It's said that there are 11 instead of 10 hands...the extra hand is the hand of God.
Walk over to the Netherlands Carillon for a better view of the District.
Go @ might!
Remember all our fallen Heroes and say a special prayer for them all.
Fica num lindo parque, fora de DC, mas que se pode chegar facilmente de metro!
Es de una película ... Cierto??
