Korean War Veterans Memorial
Honoring American Heroes
The Korean War Memorial was dedicated in 1995, on the 42nd anniversary of the armistice that ended the conflict. The memorial consists of 19 statues of soldiers representing a squad on patrol, drawn from each branch of the Armed Forces. The 19 figures create a reflection on the wall, symbolizing the border between North and South Korea: the 38th parallel.
Alongside the soldiers stands the Mural Wall with more than 2,400 photographs of men, women, and dogs who served in Korea.
