UNMCKDesignated by the UN, the United Nations Memorial Cemetery in Korea is the only holy ground of its kind in the world.
This is a holy site where the brave fallen of the 11 nations are interred. Approximately 11,000 were interred at the UNMCK between 1951 and 1954. There are currently 2,311 resting in peace at the UNMCK, including Korean soldiers who fell as members of the UN troops. Most were repatriated home; Belgium, Colombia, Ethiopia, Greece, Luxemburg, Philippines and Thailand have taken back all of their expatriates.
