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! Thousands of men and women died fighting this war. So please give them their dues, they sure have earned it.

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.

PERSONAL NOTE: A good friend of mine fought in the Korean War. From the stories he told me, this was no differant to these men and women than World War II or Vietnam. They fought and they died defending the freedom that we all hold so dear. My friend passed away several years ago, but he was very proud of his military service. And I was very honored to have known him.
