Entrance plaque to the memorial

The United Nations Memorial Cemetery in Korea is located in the South Korean city of Pusan and commemorates the dead soldiers of 16 countries who fell during the Korean War between 1951 and 1953. It is the only U.N. memorial park in the world.

Although the United States, France, Norway and Thailand mostly repatriated the bodies of their heroes, 2,3000 allied servicemen are buried in the memorial gardens.
