The North Carolina Korean War Veterans Memorial is located on NC-218 and I-485 in Mint Hill’s Veterans Memorial Park and honors North Carolinians who fought–and are still serving–to keep South Korea free from tyranny.
There were 788 members of the military from N.C. who were killed or missing in action during the war. The N.C. Korean War Veterans Memorial is the only one of its kind in the state that will ensure that the soldier’s sacrifice will always be remembered.
“The Memorial provides a regular draw for thousands of people who come to pay their respect to the veterans of this ‘forgotten war.'” –Ted Biggers, Mint Hill, N.C. Mayor
Korean War Veterans are now in their 80s and are leaving us at the rate of 1,400 a day. The memorial will be their legacy.
** As of April 4, 2016 we are unable to provide memorial pavers with donations to the memorial.
