Washington — Construction on the Wall of Remembrance and an overall rehabilitation of the Korean War Veterans Memorial starts March 15th. The Wall of Remembrance is a new, permanent addition to the memorial which will include the names of 36,574 American servicemen and more than 7,200 members of the Korean Augmentation to the United States Army who gave their lives defending the people of South Korea.

The sloped, granite Wall of Remembrance will encircle the existing Pool of Remembrance, complementing the original design of the memorial. Expected completion by summer 2022.
