My grandpa was a Korean War Veteran so I was really excited to go and see the memorial. When we went to the war memorial in Okinawa I thought it was really interesting to see the war from the opponents perspective. On the opposite side, the Korean war was a bloody war where Americans stood by the Koreans by means of protection and preserving their great nation. The war memorial showed the Americans to be equals and friends. The Korean war is a modern day demonstration of a mortal man with too much power and the evil that he can bring to pass. Millions of people had to die because on man wanted to be immortalized; so sad!!
Initially we thought that an hour would be plenty of time to check out the museum in its entirety. However, between the plane/tank/boat/missile display outside the museum itself, and the 3 floors of war artifacts and information we could have easily spent all day perusing the museum.
Unfortunately we only had a few hours before heading back to the hotel, packing up, and heading to the airport. The trip was ending and I was so sad! Korea ended up being such a great trip; one that I dragged my heals at taking. TJ usually knows me better than I know myself and I'm so glad he booked the trip. We not only had a great weekend as a family, we were able to spend some quality time with great friends, in a beautiful country!!
