Memorial. In a formal ceremony September 15, 2010, US Marine Corps Commandant General James T. Conway dedicated the Korean War battle memorial on the 60th anniversary to the day that the 1st Division Marines from Camp Pendleton landed in Korea. The granite monument is a tribute to the more than 4,400 Marines and US Soldiers whom did not survive in the Battle of the Chosin Reservoir, one of the most brutal battles during the Korean War. Located on Camp Pendleton base's South Mesa, over looking the Pacific Ocean, the memorial also honors the battle's survivors and Korean War veterans with the inscription, "We few, We Chosin Few, We Eternal Band of Brothers". This monument along with the World War II Battle of Iwo Jima Memorial, are among the only three memorials on the Marine Base at Camp Pendleton, California.
