Description

The Korean Veterans Memorial is located in Riverbend Park, on the north bank of the Great Miami River in Dayton, just east of the Riverside Drive bridge. Five lighted flagpoles fly the flags of the United States of America, the Republic of Korea, the United Nations, the State of Ohio and the Prisoners of War/Missing in Action. A thirteen-foot-tall granite statue represents all of the armed forces of the United States. The memorial also honors the significant contributions of women in the armed forces during the Korean War, and describes the ten major campaigns of the war. In front of the statue are granite memorials with the names of those men from Ohio who lost their lives during the Korean War. A well-lighted 475-foot All Veterans walkway leads to the main memorial. On the right side of the walkway are the names of the 8,182 missing in action. These names are etched in granite and are listed by state there are 348 panels. It is believed that this is the only memorial in the continental United States with a complete listing of these heroes. The left side of the walkway displays individual bricks purchased by persons or organizations to honor those who served from the Civil War through Desert Storm.
