I support H.R. 318 ("To authorize a Wall of Remembrance as part of the Korean War Veterans Memorial and") because it was part of the original plans and would honor those who sacrificed their lives in the Korean War. Just as the names on the Vietnam War Memorial recognize the individual names of KIA and MIA, this wall would give solace to the family and comrades of those who lost their lives. The Nation needs to be educated about this important foreign war that impacted our world's peace and provided the people of South Korean self-government. The contrast of North and South Korea certainly demonstrate the impact of this war. Please help finish the Korean War Veterans Memorial before all the Korean War veterans are gone. Thank you.

I support H.R. 318 ("To authorize a Wall of Remembrance as part of the Korean War Veterans Memorial and") because although it is called "the forgotten war", our service members who served there are not the forgotten heros.

I oppose H.R. 318 ("To authorize a Wall of Remembrance as part of the Korean War Veterans Memorial and") because the Vietnam War Veteran's Memorial was essential to honor veterans who were otherwise unfairly and tragically dishonored. The Vietnam War Veteran's Memorial fills a tremendous need for Vietnam War Veterans and their families to cope with the memories and loses. However, the Korean War Veterans (my father was one), were well honored, and few of them would be alive by the time the memorial was built. The memorial would be poorly visited, and serve no useful purpose.

I oppose H.R. 318 ("To authorize a Wall of Remembrance as part of the Korean War Veterans Memorial and") because it's time to seriously address contemporary issues. Representative Hall make better use of his time in Congress to work toward some semblance of cooperation instead of living in the past. The Korean war is not likely uppermost in anyone's mind with the possible exception of Representative Hall. Please oppose this type of frivolity. Thanks.
