Very nice, respectful, and fitting memorial to the Korean War and it's Veterans. Plays patriotic songs at the top of the hour. Certainly stop and see it and pay your respects to our heroes.

This memorial honors those Illinois citizens whose lives were lost in the Korean War. The four military branches, Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines, are each shown with service members stepping out from a large bronze bell. The bell is a Carillon that plays soft music as you circle the monument examining the bronze sculptures, and look at names memorialized on the large, granite base. It is a fitting tribute and beautiful memorial to visit.
