New Jersey Korean War Veterans Memorial, like the Vietnam Veterans Memorial before it, 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 is dedicated to ensuring that future generations remember their proud and dedicated service; 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, South Korea probably would not have achieved the prosperity and fulfillment it enjoys today under the communist rule of North Korea.
However frustrating and unsatisfactory the Korean War may have been for Americans, South Koreans, with their freedom protected, have a more appreciative view of history.
