1950 - 1953

—Freedom Is Not Free —

This monument is dedicated to all the men and women who served in the Korean War, to whom we owe our deepest respect and gratitude. They went not for conquest, not for personal gain, but to preserve freedom.
On June 25th 1950, Communist North Koreans crossed the 38th Parallel to invade South Korea. America immediately came to the aid of the ill-prepared South Korean Army. The Peoples Republic of China soon entered the war on the side of the North Koreans. On July 27, 1953, after three years of brutal fighting had driven the opposing armies back near the original border, a cease fire agreement was signed. Fifty years later a state of war still exists.
33,667 Americans were killed in the fighting, 103,284 more were wounded, and 8,215 are still missing.
