Veterans Grove
Bedford County, Pennsylvania

Korean War Monument

From June 1950 through July 1953, American military forces fought to turn back an invasion of Communist North Korea into Democratic South Korea.  While an Armistice Agreement was signed on July 27, 1953, there is still no peace treaty.  The war has never officially ended.

Korea was often called “The Forgotten War” because many Korean War Veterans felt they always lived in the shadow of WWII.   That is why we made the Korean War Monument (at 11 ½ feet) the tallest monument in veterans Grove, casting the tallest shadow.  The obelisk was built in 2016.

Over 33,000 Americans were killed on the battlefields of Korea, including 27 Bedford County men. 

Honoring the Fallen

Bedford County’s Korean War Monument was completed in 2016. The black, granite obelisk stands 11 1/2 feet tall. It lists the 27 Bedford County men who died during the war. Click below for a complete list of those 27 Veterans.

Divided at the 38th

The Map of Korea (as it exists in 2016) is a country that remains divided along the 38th Parallel. The map is carved into the front diamond shape.

The circular Honor Walk around the monument features the name and military service of Korean War Veterans. The Honor Walk is still open for Korean War Veterans.
