During the Korean War (June 25, 1950 - July 27, 1953), approximately 37,000 Americans and one million Koreans lost their lives. In honor of those who served and sacrificed during this war, on August 1, 2016, a new Korean War Memorial opened at the Presidio. Built by the Korean War Memorial Foundation and the Presidio Trust, the new memorial is located just outside San Francisco National Cemetery is now open to the public.
