Florida Korean War Memorial

 
Posted by Picasa


Here is a close-up picture of the broken fragment of the Korean War Memorial "Circle of Life" which I posted a picture of yesterday. You can see the names of those killed in action from Florida during the war etched on the inside of the fragment, which is located just behind the circle.

Again, Lois, a very nice Tribute to our Fallen of the Korean War. There are so many names of those who gave all in defense of our Country.

I'm not sure of this, but I think that the Korean War was never declared a War by Congress. Just like Vietnam. A Police Action.

What a brillant design for this wonderful memorial. And a very fitting name too "Circle of Life".
Splendid series, Lois Thanks for sharing.

How very appropriate that the broken fragment has the word 'life.' And so sad too.

So very creative and moving. Maybe if people internalized that fact one "life" is all we have, we wouldn't be so quick to take it away from those with whom we differ.

I find all these modern memorials fascinating and moving. They are often so simple yet thought provoking.

It's so great that someone really put a lot of thought into this.

I'm impressed with the design of this memorial. I like the idea of the broken circle as it also reflects the broken lives of all who served there, even those who returned.
