1. Barren County Korean Conflict Memorial
Inscription.
Korea

     This conflict came within less than five years after World War II. A war fought by a few veterans and many men and women still in their teens. We were oftentimes poorly armed. Fought against a force far superior in numbers. Yet the fighting reputation of these warriors was upheld in the highest tradition of the armed forces.
     This memorial commemorates the services of those Barren Countians who served during the Korean Conflict. May we never forget how they stood between us and the threat of communist aggression.
