Located north of Hoengsong, South Korea is a monument dedicated to the United States Second Infantry Division which suffered hundreds of casualties here in “Massacre Valley” on February 12-13, 1951.

This is hallowed ground where so many young men lost their lives in the cold and snow sixty years ago.

I wanted to remember and honor those men, and all the men of the Second Infantry Division who were thrust into harms way, when I sat down and started War Remains in September 2009.
