“Battle of the Bulge”. Fortunately, there are those who never forget!

(Thank you Ron Ross for photos and letter. I am shocked to learn

that one of the statues is a veteran from WWII. I only hope he was

in Korea also. I understand Mr. Gaylord’s feelings but we have

many heroic Korean War Veterans that deserved to be one of the

statues.)

Mr. Gaylord sent to Ronald C. Ross.

New York Remembers

After many months of planning we finally completed our

Korean War Veterans Memorial Wall at Cadman Plaza. 341

Brooklyn men etched in stone. We had our dedication on

November 9, 2003. Every member participated and with the

leadership of past Commander Don Feldman and Ed Cush we

succeeded in our mission. Borough President Marty Markowitz

joined Fort Hamilton Army Base Commander Col. Kewyn

Williams and area veterans to unveil the Korean War Memorial

Plaza during a poignant salute, coinciding with Veteran’s Day.

The five photos show members named and unnamed at dedication

and the memorial.

(Thank you Stanley Biesky for photos and letter.)
