  • KOREAN WAR VETERANS MEMORIAL

    The Korean War Veterans Memorial foundation, Inc., is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization originally entrusted with the responsibility to ensure that the Korean War Veterans memorial in our Nation’s Capital will be maintained in perpetuity and to assist with ceremonies at the Memorial honoring all those who have served. A recent law added a new purpose.

     

    In an effort to better convey the extent of the ultimate sacrifice of U.S. servicemen in the Korean War, Congress in 2016 authorized the addition of a “Wall of Remembrance.”

     

    In October 2016, U.S. President Barack Obama signed into law the legislation that authorized the establishment of a “Wall of Remembrance” to be incorporated into the Korean War Veterans Memorial that currently resides on the National Mall in Washington, DC.

     

    As proposed, the Wall will be made of laminated glass and encircle the rear 180 degrees of the Memorial’s Pool of Remembrance. In it will be etched the names of 36,574 Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Korean War as well as the number of U.S. servicemen wounded, Missing in Action, or Prisoners of War. It will also honor the members of the South Korean military, who served in South Korean and U.S. units, and U.N. soldiers by listing the numbers of soldiers who were killed, wounded, missing, or prisoners during the conflict.

     

    This legislation also tasked the Korean War Memorial Foundation with raising the funds necessary to build the “Wall of Remembrance”.
