Wall of Remembrance

In October 2016, President Barack Obama signed into law legislation authorizing the establishment of a Wall of Remembrance to be incorporated into the existing Korean War Veterans Memorial that currently resides on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The Wall of Remembrance will become the permanent home to the names of over 36,000 American servicemen and 7,100 Korean Augmentation to the United States Army (KATUSA) who gave their lives defending the people of South Korea.

Through the generous donations of the American and Korean people, the necessary funding for the construction costs of the Wall of Remembrance has been raised. The construction and refurbishment project began on March 15, 2021. The Wall of Remembrance Dedication Ceremony is scheduled for July 27, 2022.
