Lest We Forget-ABC WEDNESDAY "L"



ANOTHER WAR MEMORIAL: The inscription reads "Remember those Santafeans who went to fight in the mud, snow, and the choking dust of a strange land. Korea 1950-1953"

People in Santa Fe obviously honor their veterans.  This memorial is situated in a sweet little park on Old Santa Fe Trail on land donated by Amelia White and dedicated to her.

  1. Korea was another one of our military excursions in which those who fought felt rather alone and forgotten. But it was a horror for the ones involved. Glad to see such a memorial.

  4. That is very touching they made a memorial for Korea seems so long ago already again.

  5. It is a beautiful one and the sky behind it is very dramatic.

  6. A terrible war indeed, and so often overlooked. This memorial works better than our Korean War memorial.

  7. Another nasty, forgotten conflict. It was "background" when I was small. The more I've belatedly learned of it, the sadder it is.

  9. The Korean war was a lot like Vietnam. Many people wanted to close their eyes and pretend it didn't happen. In places I have gone, I have never seen a stand-alone memorial honoring Korean war veterans.
