US Marine Corps War Memorial, Arlington, Virginia
The Iconic U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial
The United States Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington honors the nation's Marines. A grand statue shows a scene of the six servicemen who raised the second U.S. flag on Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II. This scene was based off the iconic, Pultizer Prize-winning photograph captured by Joe Rosenthal. The figures stand on a granite base engraved with the names and dates of every major Marine Corps enegagment since 1775. This famous memorial is located off of George Washington Memorial Parkway and Route 50. There is a free parking lot for drivers and it can also be accessed by foot from the Rosslyn Metro Station or by the free shuttle bus that runs from the Arlington National Cemetery Visitors Center.
