MUSEUM OF HISTORY IN GRANITE
|On February 7, 1997, the Trustees of this museum voted unanimously to build the U.S. MARINE CORPS KOREAN WAR MEMORIAL at the World Commemorative Center ® at Felicity, California.|
The groundbreaking ceremony was held on March 8, 1997, and the completed one hundred foot-long monument was dedicated one year later on March 7, 1998.
Between June 1950 and July 1953, 4,617 Marines and 107 Navy Corpsmen gave their lives during the Korean War.
Their names, in 3/4" high letters, along with rank and note of Navy Cross and Medal of Honor awards where applicable, are engraved for the ages.
The war, stemming naked aggression, was fought for freedom and honor.
