The Orange County Korean War Memorial Committee has been working for years to create a local memorial to the war’s veterans, but previously lacked the funding and support for it to become a reality. The Fullerton City Council on Tuesday, July 21, 2020 unanimously voted for the monument’s construction.
This will be the country’s first memorial to include the names of all 36,492 American soldiers who died in the Korean War. From the state of California, there were 2,611 casualties reported.
