On July 27

On this day in ...
... 1995, 42 years after the Korean War armistice was signed in the border town of Panmunjom, U.S. President Bill Clinton and South Korean President Kim Young-sam dedicated the Korean War Veterans Memorial (right) on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The monument features statues and an honor roll of U.S. servicemembers killed during the 3-year armed conflict.
