Why we need an official Korean War Memorial in Melbourne

We need an official War Memorial in Melbourne to honour the service and noble sacrifices of the Australians who served in the Korean War, 1950-53, in defence of freedom and democracy on the Korean Peninsula. A Melbourne War Memorial will further strengthen the long-standing and deep friendship between the Republic of Korea and Australia. Currently there are three Korean War Memorials in Australia, located in Canberra (2000), Sydney (2009) and the Gold Coast (2011). Globally there are 292 Korean War Memorials in 20 countries that participated in the war.
