Long Description:

There were 16 countries that committed troops to the war of freedom in Korea from 1953-1956, and five others that assisted with medical care. This monument honors their sacrifices for freedom.

Along the front are flag poles flying the colors of each of these countries. In the center, large granite stairs lead up to a plaza area where the focal point is a large (approx. 1.5m in diameter) granite earth globe with the continents carved in relief. On either side are two memorial plaques of polished granite.
