Korea: June 25, 1950 - July 27, 1953

This memorial honors the Korean War veterans from Cape Cod and the Islands. The white bricks in the pathway immortalize those who were killed in action or died while missing.
One and one half million Americans served in Korea; 129,000 were from Massachusetts.
The statue of a combat infantry man of the 35th Regiment is derived from the original photograph taken by 35th Division combat photographer Don Duquette near Suwon, North Korea, 1951.
The sculpture is by Robert Shure.
This sign is funded by the Korean War Veterans Association Cape and Islands Chapter 1 and by the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities.
The Korean War began when the Communist North Korean army crossed the 38th Parallel and invaded South Korea. In June 1950, the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution recommending that U.N. members assist South Korea in repelling the invasion.
The United States government responded quickly. President Truman authorized ships and airplanes to protect the evacuation of American dependants in Korea and the use of American air and naval to support the Republic of Korea. He approved sending two Army divisions from Japan to Korea and a naval blockade of North Korea.
