WASHINGTON_016.jpg
The Korean War Veterans memorial in Washington, DC. General Douglas MacArthur said, "Old soldiers never die, they just fade away." When the last veteran of the Korean War fades into history, he can do so knowing that a memorial will remind future generations of his/her sacrifices in defense of South Korea. The statues depicting fighting men on patrol represent the army, navy, Marine Corps, and air force working together for a common goal - victory. A granite mural of over two thousand sandblasted photographs honors the supporting services who provided supply, medical, spiritual, and fire support to the frontline units.
