The Korean War is the only war that has not won since the American War of Independence. For more than two hundred years, the United States has always signed the letter of victory. Only the Korean War has signed the armistice agreement. The war left a psychological shadow on Americans. The Veterans Memorial is a group of lost soldiers.
The Korean War Veterans Monument, which corresponds to the Vietnam War Monument across the pond of reflection, is a commemoration of another war. It is small in size. Most noticeable is that there is a group of statues describing the war scene. More than a dozen soldiers search the battlefield with guns, reflecting the military's role: to protect their home and their country. They are heroes at all times.
In Washington, D.C. What is shown here is different from what we have learned at home. It is engraved on the ground, and it is remembered here that a group of young people have heeded the call of their motherland to defend a country they have never heard of and a people they have never seen. Think about the Sanfat family, there is no worry. Alas.
The Korean War Veterans Memorial was built in Washington in 1995. Part of the memorial is a huge black granite wall with soldiers'faces engraved on it. The other part consists of 19 sculptures of marching soldiers, whose faces are illuminated by spotlights at night from beneath their feet. Visiting here at night may bring strange feelings.
The monument consists of two parts. The first part consists of 19 life-size statues of American soldiers. The statue, wearing a helmet, groped with a gun through a rain forest overgrown with weeds. The second part is a black granite memorial wall, which depicts the real pictures of all the soldiers found. At the end of the wall is inscribed a philosophical sentence, FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.
The sculpture of the American soldiers in North Korea reproduces the painful memories and lessons of the terrible war with the dignified, fearful and tense expressions on the faces of the soldiers. This is the only war that has not ended with victory in the past two hundred years since the founding of the United States.
The Korean War Veterans Memorial was built in Washington, D.C. in 1995 to commemorate the American and United Nations soldiers killed in the Korean War. When I went there, a group of Korean students were laying wreaths. It shows that Korean people have not forgotten history.
