Fayetteville and Cumberland County honors her sons and daughters who answered the call to defend a country they never knew and a people they never met.

The Sergeants Major Association sponsored the Korean War Memorial and on Sunday, July 27, 2003 at 3:00 p.m. a Korean War Memorial was unveiled in Freedom Memorial Park, Fayetteville, North Carolina.

The Memorial is crafted of black and gray marble similar to that used for the National Memorial in Washington, DC. At the top of the large center panel the words "Korea – The Forgotten War – June 25, 1950 – July 27, 1953" are inscribed. In the center is the map of Korea highlighting many of the historical points of battle. At the base is the number of casualties of the Korean War. On the left panel are the crests of each branch of our Armed Forces. Just below the crest are the fourteen major units that served in the war.

Inscribed on the right panel are the names of the twenty eight Korean War Veterans from Cumberland County that lost their lives in that conflict. The bottom stone is inscribed “FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.”
