Went to Philly, Aug. 2016. All I can say is that Philly knows how to do monuments and memorials. You may think you were in D.C.

We visited the memorial as part of a walk along Penns landing. It is behind Spruce park. We were alone there and I thought how sad. I thought the Korean War was largely forgotten. Suddenly lots of people turned up, servicemen and families. Good to...More

Visitors to this small but tastefully presented memorial will see a representation of the trials that faced our brave soldiers and marines in this often overlooked and little understood war. It is worth the time to visit and appreciate their efforts,
