United States Marine Corps ~ The Iwo Jima Memorial is located near Arlington cemetery, across the Potomac river from Washington, D. I remember the first time I went here it's breath taking! I vacant wait to go with you!
The opposite of DC’s white, gleaming marble, the black, low-lying Vietnam memorial cuts into the earth. The monument shows the names of the war’s fatalities – listed in the order they died – along a dark, reflective wall.
