60th Anniversary of the Beginning of the Korean War

Today June 25th, 2010 Today marks the 60th Anniversary of the beginning of the Korean War.

I know this was a bit off course since I’m doing the series for the Washington Monument, but I felt I needed to post at least to photograph to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War, and also to take this opportunity to give a brief intro about the Korean War Veterans Memorial.

The Mural Wall at the Korean War Veterans Memorial

The Korean War Veterans Memorial is located, southeast of the Lincoln Memorial and south of the Reflecting Pool. It commemorates those who served in the Korean War. Here, you can find Nineteen steel sculptures(above photo) watched by thousands of faces that are pictured on the granite wall known as the Mural Wall(see photo on the right).

The photograph below is a closeup of one of the steel sculpture.
