The Korean War is often called the “forgotten war,” but a resolution signed Tuesday in Hagerstown will make sure the local men and women who served during the conflict are always remembered. Joined by numerous members of Antietam Chapter 312 of the Korean War Veterans Association, city Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II put his signature on an agreement to construct a memorial at the corner of Potomac Avenue and Mealey Parkway in Hagerstown. “We thought we needed to have something permanent that would keep the focus of the war in place and to honor those individuals who served during that war, and most particularly those who gave their lives during that time period,” Jim Mobley, chairman of the chapter's monument committee, said in a news release.
