Welcome to the New Jersey Korean War Veterans
The New Jersey Korean War Veterans Memorial, like the previously completed
Vietnam Veterans Memorial, will help to heal the spiritual and psychological
wounds suffered by the Korean War veterans, their families and friends.
Part of the healing process is to understand America’s involvement
in that struggle, what it accomplished, and the contribution of our
men and women who served.
The New Jersey Korean War Veterans Memorial was created to ensure that future
generations remember and honor the pride and dedication of those
who served, the legacy they continued, and the freedom they preserved.
The veterans of the Korean War saved South Korea from a tragic
fate. In the long term, comparing conditions today in the North
with those of the South, it is easy to see that South Korea could
not have achieved the prosperity and fulfillment it enjoys today
if it had been under the kind of repressive government that has
tightly gripped North Korea since that time.
However painful, frustrating and unsatisfactory the Korean War
may have been for Americans, it secured an important victory for
democracy in South Korea.
