The Mural Wall, created by muralist, Louis Nelson, characterizes “America’s Mantelpiece,” with over 2,700 actual images of men and women who served during the Korean War. As the statues are reflected in the Mural Wall, their numbers grow to 38, symbolic of the 38th Parallel, which in 1950, was the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea. On the Mural Wall, etched is the inscription “FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.” The addition of the Wall of Remembrance will define the cost of FREEDOM with each individual name of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to FREEDOM.

We cannot do this without your help! Please help us to raise the necessary funding to build the Wall of Remem-brance for our fallen soldiers and
