The 843 Tennesseans, including 3 Medal of Honor recipients, are honored on this memorial. A wall of black granite plaques lists the names of each of the fallen. In the center is a black granite slab with a map of the Korean peninsula and placed in front of the map are two life-size statues of fighting men – one of whom is a downed pilot with his pistol drawn and the other is an infantryman armed with a rifle. The memorial states it honors those who fought in the Korean War where communist aggression was defeated. The memorial was sculpted by Russell Faxon.
