Hawaii's Korean War Memorial, built at a cost of one million dollars, was dedicated on July 24, 1994.  It is located in downtown Honolulu on the State Capitol grounds under a canopy of Royal Poinciana and Hawaiian native trees.

The memorial is a serpentine wall nearly 100 feet in length, 6 feet high and made of polished, black granite capped with lava rocks.  The wall is pedestaled - each pedestal being one foot square, allowing friends or relatives to place flowers or mementos on them.  Each pedestal bears the engraved names of the 456 Hawaii men who died in the Korean War.

Every Thursday a veteran organization maintains the memorial by washing and polishing the wall and cleaning the grounds.
