ADA Services There are no steps leading to the memorial.

The memorial is positioned and shaped to capture sunlight through its vertical spaces. While the sun travels the horizon, columns of light shine onto the ground, highlighting words that express individual and shared experiences about the war.

In 2013, Korean War veterans were honored in a ceremony to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the end of the war.  View the video at the link to the left.
