A brief history of the Korean War Veterans Memorial to go alongside my Stock Photography
- The Korean War Veterans Memorial is a controversial tribute to a controversial war. It was known as the "Forgotten War" because war was never officially
declared, despite 1.5 million Americans serving in the conflict.
The Korean War Veterans Memorial is made up of a number of different designs/sections including the :
- Nineteen striking stainless steel statues designed by Frank Gaylord in what is known as the "Triangular Field of Service", which depicts a "Squad on Patrol" pointed
towards the American flag as their symbolic objective.
