Dallas Chapter of the Korean National Unification Advisory Council (NUAC) purchased 42 bricks for the Carrollton Veterans Memorial.

 

Led by president Suk Chan Yu, NUAC officials and Head of Mission Sung-Rae Hong of the Consular Office of the Republic of Korea in Dallas visited VFW Post 8923 in downtown Carrollton last Monday, October 14th. Carrollton Mayor Pro Tem Young Sung, who is Korean-American, was in attendance as well.

 

The City of Carrollton is building the Carrollton Veterans Memorial to commemorate veterans of all wars. According to Carrollton Leader, the total cost of the project is about $345,000. While the City is paying for the entire project, ‘Buy A Brick Program’ has been in place to allow citizens’ participation. Total of 600 bricks are being sold through the program.

 

NUAC Dallas Chapter is the only ethnic community organization to participate in the ‘Buy A Brick Program.’

 

Brick costs $32.00 each, with additional $5.00 for imprinting of a logo. Veteran’s name, name of the war, and the period of the war will be imprinted on the brick.

 

Korean NUAC Dallas Chapter purchased the bricks to honor the members of Korean Vietnam War Veterans Association of Dallas and Korean War Veterans Association of Dallas. 42 members from both organizations will have their names engraved on the Carrollton Veterans Memorial.

 

During last Monday’s visit, Suk Chan Yu presented $1,554 check to Tim Herald, commander of the VFW Post 8923.

 

“The memorial is for all war veterans. Koreans were our allies in both the Korean War and the Vietnam War. I’m glad that the Korean American war veterans can be part of the great memorial.” Tim Herald said.

 

Tim Herald and Ron Branson, former Carrollton Mayor, has been driving this project from 3 years ago.

 

“Korean American community has strong ties to the City of Carrollton. I’m glad that NUAC Dallas Chapter can help war veterans of both communities leave their legacy for all generations to come.” Suk Chan Yu said.

 

The memorial is proposed to be located at a park site west of the Josey Ranch Library. It features a world map design. Panels would show the branch of military service, stars would be placed on the map to indicate where certain wars took place and an American flag would be placed on the Washington D.C. location on the map. A section of brick would be located on the memorial as well, and the public could buy bricks to be placed in that area and dedicated to their loved ones.

 

The memorial is expected to be completed sometime in November.
