ABOUT

The Korean War Memorial is one of two cylindrical limestone and granite sculptures designed by Indianapolis architect Patrick Brunner.

The other sculpture honors veterans of the Vietnam War. The convex side of the Korean War Memorial, which faces the street, includes excerpts from letters written by Indiana soldiers to their loved ones at home. The concave side lists the names of men and women killed during the war.

Hours & location
On July 24, 2021, the Indiana War Memorials Foundation, with the assistance of the Daughters of the American Revolution and POW/MIA Council of Indianapolis held a Bricks of Honor Dedication at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, honoring Indiana’s 195 Korean War Missing in Action Service Members.

The event was attended by over 400, many who traveled from out of state to attend the ceremony on behalf of their family members still missing. Each Serviceman now has a Brick of Honor located on the Northside of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, where their legacy will forever be remembered.
