KOREA MEMORIAL REFINED AND EXPANDED

September 01, 2022

Unlike the Vietnam Memorial, the Korean Veterans Memorial discourages "rubbings" or "etchings" of the names on the new wall  With an angled surface, the stone is very hot and the short railing does not make it easy to take an etching.   According to the Korean War Veterans Memorial Foundation, the Wall of Remembrance features the names of 29,857 U.S. soldiers, 4,522 U.S. Marines, 668 U.S. sailors, 1,587 U.S. airmen, and 7,174 Korean augmentees to the U.S. Army. A total of 43,808 names appears on the wall.  

There are new entrances to the Memorial located on the North and South sides of the Memorial and leading into the Wall of Remembrance.  The changes -- not to ignore the Wall of Remembrance-- are more of convenience and depth of experience.  The Squadron's weary figures still dominate the site.
