Additional Information: The Korean-Vietnam Peace Memorial Committee, chaired by Korean War veteran William Ramsey, organized the project and fund-raising for the sculpture. The committed decided it should be a peace memorial rather than a war memorial because American servicemen have always fought to preserve peace rather than for conquest. The initial contribution of $1,000 (toward the $15,000 cost for the sculpture) was donated by Omaha Post 1 American Legion. Actor John Wayne sent a check and many families of servicemen contributed.
