The Marine Corps War Memorial

The very first stop for us on our bus tour of Washington, DC was, The Marine Corps War Memorial.

The memorial stands as a symbol of United States esteem for the honored dead of the U.S. Marine Corps.















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 defense of the United States since 1775.
