Korean War Memorial
A Tribute to The Forgotten War
The Korean War Memorial is located in front of the Planes of Fame Air Museum. The memorial commemorates the sacrifices of the 5.8 million Americans who served in the U.S. armed services during the three-year period of the Korean War. The War was one of the most hard fought in our history. During its relatively short duration from June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953, over 36,000 Americans died in hostile actions in the Korean War theater. Of these, 8,200 are listed as missing in action, lost, or buried at sea. In addition, 103,284 were wounded during the conflict. Those who sacrificed so much to defend the people of South Korea are honored through this memorial and will never be forgotten.
