This memorial provides a unique feeling of being there with life size soldiers walking through the terrain. Must view it from the West side to get the impact of the etching on the granite. Makes it look like soldiers are in the distance.

This memorial has a certain feeling about it as if it is about to come alive. I can imagine the other worldliness of this monument when it is shrouded in ground fog. Very surreal and moving. Thank you to our Korean Veterans for their service and sacrifice.

Toured both in daylight and again that same night.
The memorial takes on a different life in the dark.
