What travelers say:

I came to this city on business trip, walked around, ran around the sights, and came to the Korean War Veterans (Dead Soldiers) Memorial, which was built in Washington, DC in 1995 to commemorate the American soldiers and United Nations soldiers who died in the Korean War. The establishment of such a "Monument for Korean War Veterans (Deaths)" was mentioned after the completion of the Vietnam War Memorial Wall. The U.S. Congress authorized the U.S. War Memorial Committee to establish such a memorial to honor American men and women who have served the country in North Korea (Public Law 99-572 was filed on October 28, 1986). The then President Ronald Reagan immediately appointed a Korean War Memorial Wall Advisory Group to help carry out this work. In September 1988, the United States War Memorial Committee approved the National Mall in Washington DC where the planned memorial wall is located, southwest of the Ash Woods Lincoln Memorial. President Bush Sr. laid the foundation stone for the memorial park on June 14, 1992. On July 27, 1995, the 42nd anniversary of the Armistice Agreement of the Korean War, President Clinton and South Korean President Kim Young Sam attended the opening ceremony. This is a building designed and managed by the "Korean War Veterans Memorial Advisory Committee and the American War Memorial Committee". Now, Guangli of the memorial pass has been handed over to the National Mall and Historical Memorial Park Group of the National Park Service. This monument is built in a triangular inner wall. The wall is about 50 meters long and about 20 cm thick. More than 100 tons of Academy Black black granite was shipped from California. There are more than 2500 photographs or archive photos by sandblasting. Presented on the wall. The circle contains a memorial pool, a shallow pool of black granite with a diameter of 9 meters, and is surrounded by a tree. Inscribe the number of dead, injured, missing and imprisoned.
