Such an impressive monument. It sad that there has to be any names on it.

How interesting! Nobody fought in Korea. Thank goodness. Isn't it amazing all the wars, and it seems they made no difference at all (except for WWI and WWII)..

Re your comment on The Villages: Haagen Daaz has the whole building...the sign about bait is one of The Villages attempts to make stuff look old. The Villages is a Disneyland for adults. But it's fun.

Impressive monument Hamilton, we have a similar one in King Park for the WA soldiers who died in the same wars.
