November 27, 2020

This monument honours the more than 32,000 Canadians who served in the Korean War, from 1950 to 1953, and on subsequent Korean service from 1953 to 1957.   A plaque nearby reads, "Inscribed are the names of the 516 courageous and selfless Canadians who died for freedom and peace.   The Canadian volunteer soldier faces towards Busan, Korea, where an identical monument watches over the graves of 378 Canadians in the United Nations Memorial Cemetery They Korean Children both hold symbols:   The girl a bouquet of maples leaves symbolizing Canada, and the by a bouquet of maples leaves and roses of Sharon, the national flower of Korea. A Canadian Korean war veteran designed the monument", which was sculpted by Young Mun Yoo.   

"The Republic of Korea has expressed to Canadians its everlasting gratitude and friendship.   Canada honours those who gave their lives on land, on sea, and in the air for the sake of others so very far away."
