More than 1.5 million Americans fought for our country during the Korean War (1950-53). During those three years of conflict, more than 35,000 American soldiers died, including five West Seneca residents, with approximately 101,000 wounded and over 7,000 missing in action.
Now, the West Seneca Joint Veterans Committee, along with American Legion Post 735, is embarking on a mission to ensure that our Korean service people are properly recognized by creating and erecting a memorial in honor of their service to our great nation.
The committee is seeking donations to help cover expenses to design and construct a Korean War monument. The monument will be placed in the Walkway of Freedom complex within West Seneca’s Veterans Memorial Park. Tax-deductible contributions can be made by check, payable to American Legion 735 – KWM, and mailed to: West Seneca Joint Veterans Committee, 35 Legion Parkway, West Seneca, NY 14224. If you have any questions, please contact Jim Manley at 867-4220.
Thank you for your support!
