The Korean War Veterans Memorial – dedicated on July 27, 1995 – stands just southeast of the Lincoln Memorial. Inspiring and motivating, it commemorates the sacrifice of the 5.8 million Americas who served in the Korean War. The memorial includes 19 stainless steel statues sculpted by Frank Gaylord of Barre, VT. The statues stand approximately seven feet tall and include members of the U.S. armed services: 14 Army, 3 Marine, 1 Navy and 1 Air Force.
If you choose to visit this memorial for your family reunion tour, couple it with the Lincoln and Vietnam Memorials which are located within walking distance. For those who do not have their own tour guide, park rangers are on duty from 9:30AM to 11:30PM daily to answer questions and provide interpretive programs on the hour from 10AM to 11PM.
