Arlington in Arlington County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Here We Remember Them All
US Marine Corps War Memorial, George Washington Memorial Parkway
— National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior —
Look at any chapter of our military history since the American Revolution, and there you can find the Marines—under arms, ready to go, and willing to sacrifice for the sake of our nation.
Scan the battle honors engraved in gold on the solemn black stone base of the statue ahead. Remembering their history matters to the Marines. Each place name you see represents a lasting legacy of unflinching will, selfless esprit de corps, teamwork, discipline, and hope for victory. All these characteristics have made the Marines unique American patriots.
This memorial was built to honor all Marines, not just those who fought in World War II. It created a solemn place where we can recognize—and thank—all Marines.
Core values every Marine recruit makes a part of their lives
