Korean War Monument
Veterans Day 2023 marked another significant moment as The Veterans National Memorial Shrine and Museum dedicated a truly inspiring memorial to Korean veterans who helped win "The Forgotten War".
There are 12 statues depicting a patrol and each features the actual face of 12 Korean Veterans from the area. Every statue has a different pose, including a rifleman, minesweeper and one soldier helping another.
The colors were presented by the 122nd Fighter Wing, Air National Guard and a prayer was offered by Dr. Reverend Young Soo An, pastor at the Korean Congregation, First Presbyterian Church.
Major donor W. Paul Wolf spoke on his dedication to helping The Veterans National Memorial Shrine and Museum continue its mission: "Where no veteran will ever be forgotten".
An emotional remembrance was given by Antoinette Lee, a young girl at the time, who survived many harrowing days and night with the North Koreans moving throughout her city.
This memorial is a permanent example of the servicemen and women who have done so much for our country and the world.
