  The statue's expression says it all
by travelfrosch

On the far side of Castle Island is the South Boston Korean War Memorial. Pay special attention to the facial expression on the statue of the soldier. I think it encapsulates the fatigue, confusion, despair and frustration that epitomized the fate of the Korean War Soldiers and Marines caught in the Chinese invasion. It is one of the most moving war monuments I've seen.
