Honoring the Soldiers of the Korean War

The Korean War Veterans Memorial is a national monument located in Washington, D.C, dedicated in 1995 to the more than 1.8 million American soldiers who served in the Korean War. The memorial features several statues and displays that represent the different branches of the U.S. armed forces that served in the war from 1950 to 1953.

Centerpiece of the memorial is a group of 19 stainless steel statues, which represent a squad on patrol, moving through a field of juniper bushes. The statues are larger than life-size and stand at approximately 7 feet tall.

The memorial also includes a mural wall that depicts images of soldiers, equipment, and the Korean landscape during the war. In front of the mural wall is a reflective pool, which is surrounded by granite benches that allow visitors to sit and reflect on the sacrifice and service of those who served in the Korean War.
