In the shadow of the Lincoln Memorial, 19 soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines slog in sodden rain gear. Slightly larger than life, these stainless steel statues represent the men who fought, were wounded, and died in the cause of freedom during the Korean War. They walk beside a granite wall etched with the words “Freedom is not free” and the faces of 2,400 men and women. Officers and enlisted men. Doctors and nurses. Chaplains, medics, mechanics, supply officers. Digitally reproduced from photographs, these are the faces of actual Korean War veterans. This solemn memorial offers a chance to honor the 1.5 million servicemen and women who served in this chapter of the ongoing fight for freedom.
