Photos taken Memorial Day, May 30, 2005.

The site has oval walls which do not lend itself to picture taking as a front view prevents a suitable photo encompassing the outline of the Korean peninsula showing the 38th parallel, cities and areas of both sections of Korea.  In addition, the land slopes downward toward the harbor.

Frederick County

The Frederick County Memorial is located beside I-70 near the Washington County line and its sister marker on I-70 at the Carroll County line. After several years of hard work, the stretch of I-70 passing through Frederick County was dedicated as the "Korean War Veterans Memorial highway" on Sunday May 3rd, 2004
