This monument is to the veterans of the Korean War. The memorial was dedicated in July 1995, 42 years after the war ended. The memorial includes a sculpture of a platoon of soldiers walking across a field and a wall with images of the casualties in the conflict. The memorial is on the Mall south and east of the Lincoln Memorial near the Reflecting Pool. The design of the memorial emrged after a long process involving several design fims, architects, and various commissions. Although the design competition was announced in September 1988, it was not until 1993 that ground was broken for the memorial.
