MEMORIAL SPEECH BY MR, BLASTUCK ON BEHALF OF THE MEMBERS OF THE 765TH TRSB | WOULD LIKE TO THANK MR. JONG CHUL LEE FOR HIS GRACIOUS AND GENEROUS CONTRIBUTION WHICH HAVE ALLOWED THIS RE-UNION AND DEDICATION TO OCCUR. WE ALSO EXPRESS OUR THANKS TO THE SHOP SUPERINTENDENT AND HIS ADMINISTATION OFFICE OF THE SOUTH KOREAN RAILSROADS FOR THEIR PARTICIPATION IN THIS EVENT. TO REALIZE THAT WE ARE BACK IN THE PART OF THE WORLD WHERE FIFTY YEARS AGO WE SERVED AS YOUNG SOLDIERS IN THE UNITED STATES ARMY IS VERY HUMBLING. IT CERTAINLY IS NOT SOMETHING WE WOULD HAVE ANTICIPATED AS RECENTLY AS ONE YEAR AGO, THIS VISITATION CERTAINLY BRINGS BACK MEMORIES OF WORKING CLOSELY WITH THE DEDICATED SOUTH KOREAN BACK SHOP WORKERS AS WE SUPPORTED THE VALIENT AMERICAN AND ROK COMBAT FORCES. WE FEEL PROPER TO ALSO CONSIDER THIS RE-UNION AS A DEDICATION TO THE MANY SOLDIERS WHO MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE TO INSURE THAT THERE WOULD INDEED BE A FREE AND DEMOCRATIC SOUTH KOREA IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE AT THIS TIME THAT WE EACH TAKE A QUIET SOLEMN MOMENT TO REMEMBER THE SPECIFIC NAMES OF THOSE WE SERVED WITH DURING OUR MILITARY CAREERS THAT WERE NOT TO RETUM HOME TO THEIR LOVED ONES. AS IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN “THOSE THAT GAVE THEIR LIFE SO THAT ANOTHER MIGHT LIVE ARE THE HEROES.” FINALLY. IT IS VERY GRATIFYING TO VISIT HERE AND WITNESS THE GREAT SUCCESS THE SOUTH KOREAN PEOPLE HAVE HAD WITH THE FREEDOM WON FOR THEM BY THE COMBINED FORCES AF MANY NATIONS. IT IS TESTIMONY TO THE HARD WORK AND DEDICATION OF THE PEOPLE THAT HAS ALLOWED THEM TO BE RECOGNIZED WORLD WIDE FOR THEIR EFFORTS. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE TRIBUTE TO THOSE WHO SERVED SO THAT SOUTH KOREA COULD REMAIN FREE, AS OUR SOUTH KOREAN WAR MEMORIAL IN WASHINGTON,D.C. SO RIGHTLY STATES FREEDOM IS NOT FREE."

LATER IN 1959, AN AGREEMENT WAS CONCLUDED BETWEEN THE UNITED NATIONS AND THE REPUBLIC OF KOREA TO ESTABLISH THE "UNITED NATIONS MEMORIAL CEMETERY" IN KOREA TO PAY TRIBUTE TO ALL THOSE WHO WERE KILLED DURING THE WAR IN RESISTING AGGRESSION AND IN UPHOLDING THE CAUSE OF PEACE AND FREEDOM. THIS IS THE UNIQUE CEMETERY IN THE WORLD DESIGNATED BY THE UNITED NATIONS ITSELF. THE CEMETERY CONSISTS OF LARGELY THREE AREAS : SYMBOLIC, GRAVE AND GREEN AREAS. AMONG THEM THE SYMBOLIC AREA OCCUPYING PLATEAU PART OF THE LAND WITH FLAG MASTS OF PARTICIPATING NATIONS OF THE UN FORCES, WAS DEDICATED IN HONOUR OF THE PRECIOUS SACRIFICES AND THE SYMBOL OF CONCERTED EFFORTS OF 22 NATIONS INCLUDING KOREA UNDER THE UN FLAG DURING THE WAR, SINCE ITS INCEPTION, VARIOUS BUILDINGS AND MONUMENTS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED INSIDE THE CEMETERY. THESE ARE TURKISH MEMORIALS(TWO), A GREEK MEMORIAL IN THE SYMBOLIC AREA ‘A COMMONWEALTH MEMORIAL MONUMENT COMMEMORATING 386 FALLEN OF COMMONWEALTH FORCES, AN AUSTRALIAN MEMORIAL AND A CANADIAN MEMORIAL STATUE IN THE GRAVE AREA ; AND A KOREAN MEMORIAL MONUMENT FOR ALL SACRIFICES(37,897) OF THE UN FORCES OF WHICH THE ROLLS OF HONOUR ARE ENSHRINED IN THE GREEN AREA. THESE MONUMENTS ARE ALL DEDICATED BY THEIR COUNTRIES RESPECTIVELY. ‘THE MAIN GATE, WHICH WAS DEDICATED BY BUSAN CITIZEN IN 1966, AND THE MEMORIAL SERVICE HALL OF 1964 WERE BOTH DESIGNED BY A FAMOUS KOREAN ARCHITECT, AND ARE NOW ADDING THEIR MEMORABLE AND HISTORIC CHARACTERS. INTERIORS OF THE MEMORABILIA HALL AND MEMORIAL SERVICE HALL WERE RENOVATED IN 2003. DURING THE PERIOD OF 1951-1954, REMAINS OF APPROXIMATELY 11,000 FALLEN OF THE UN FORCES WERE BURIED HERE, AND THEREAFTER WERE REMOVED TO THEIR HOME COUNTRIES.
