This memorial is located at the Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetary in Exeter. It consists of a 65' arch, 12 1/2" high, weighing over 90 tons. There are seven panels which are 6' wide; one each for the Army, Airforce, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard, the Korean War Veterans of Rhode Island (KWVRI) logo, and the center panel is the map of Korea, highlighting many of the historical points of battle. The seven panels are connected by a series of arches which are inscribed with the sentiment "FREEDOM IS NOT FREE". At the two end columns, black granite has been engraved with 44 images of actual R.I. veterans along with the images of weapons and transportation utilized during the Korean War.
