Dedicated to all military forces who served during the Korean War, 1950 - 1954. The memorial is at the University of Akron. It was dedicated on November 12, 2001.
People need to stop calling this "The Korean Conflict". This was NOT a misunderstanding, it was a WAR!
A note left from Jerac Torres I thought was fitting to appear on this page. I hope you approve Jerac~
My father fought in the Korean War. It hurts him when he finds that people don't even know there was such a conflict. People are educated on World War II then the history book jumps to Vietnam with little or no mention of Korea. I wish he would receive more recognition but he doesn't want it. He wants the recognition and respect to go to those who never came home. That is why I wear an MIA Bracelet in honor of a lost soldier of this war. This POW-MIA flag is for them. I will close with my father's saying, "Rest easy my comrades, until we form again." May they all rest in peace.
