Purpose

One of the purposes of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is historical, stated in part as "to perpetuate the memory and history of our dead". We share this historical interest in our veterans with their family members, their friends, and the general public.

The Korean War Veterans Association mentions both the Baltimore memorial and the designation of Interstate 70.
