The Statues and What They Represent

The Memorial Statuary are composed of five larger then life figures. A Nurse leads the group, because without the dedication, compassion, and bravery of the Medics, many would not have returned.

Following the Nurse are Army and Marine Infantrymen, because the Infantry bears the brunt of the battle.

Then comes the Air Force Pilot and a Sailor, without whose  support the battle would have soon been lost.

The statues face east, because Korea is in the Far East, and in memory of all who lost their lives and are still missing in action. All five figures are touching, touching in brotherhood that comes from battle.

There are no weapons on the Memorial - this is to  confirm the veteran's wish for peace. The five figures will stand in memory of all veterans who serve our state.
