On June 20, 2013, the Shenandoah Valley Chapter #313, Korean War Veterans Association dedicated their Korean War Memorial to honor the fallen warriors of the Korean War from Winchester, Frederick County and the counties contiguous to Frederick County located in both Virginia and West Virginia.

The Memorial, erected in the Jim Barnett Park in Winchester, VA, features a granite stone bearing an engraved image of the Korean Peninsula along with the names of all of the men from the area who were killed-in-action in Korea. Also featured are benches honoring members of the Chapter who were Prisoners of War in Korea and five pairs of bonze combat boots representing the five branches of our United States military — Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. A recent addition to the Memorial is an area that is dedicated to the deceased members of the Shenandoah Valley Chapter #313.

The Memorial was funded solely with private money that was raised primarily through the sale of engraved brick pavers bearing the names of veterans of all of our wars. No public money was used in the construction of the memorial.

Participating in the dedication on June 20, 2013 were the Republic of Korea Defense Attaché attached to the Korean Embassy in Washington, D. C., Brigadier General Lee, Seo Young, U. S. Army Colonel David J. Clark, the Chairman of the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War Commemoration Committee, and the Honorable Elizabeth Minor, the Mayor of Winchester along with members of the Shenandoah Valley Chapter.

This is a very beautiful Memorial, erected in a prominent location in the Park. We are very proud of the Memorial which is a fitting tribute to our young men who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our Korean friends from impending Communist domination.

Freedom is not Free!

Lew Ewing
