The Evansville Korean War Memorial along the banks of the Ohio River captures the tragedy and fatigue of those who fought. The three sculpted figures in battle fatigues wear beleaguered expressions. Two men help their wounded comrade as they move along rugged ground. The sculptures are set in a half circle monument ground with flags behind and pedestal in front. The pedestal contains a bronze map of the Korean Peninsula and a brief description of the war with U.S. casualty figures at the bottom. The memorial is dedicated to all those in all the military services who served in Korea. The sculptured figures are very similar to those on the nearby Desert Storm/Desert Shield memorial as they are carved by the same artist.
