History

Colombia, the only country in South America to send troops to the Korean War, has a memorial in the Colombian Bogotá Military Base which is similar to Dabotap (The national treasure of Korea). The names of 213 soldiers killed in action are inscribed on the copperplate along with an inscription praising the bravery of the soldiers under the name of the commander of the 24th U.S. Division, where Colombian troops were assigned during the Korean War. The memorial is frequently used as a place to offer flowers when a Korean War memorial ceremony is held or when the Korean ambassador of Colombia is newly named.
