Paving Stones Engraved to Commemorate Soldiers....

The Korean War Memorial was completed in 1998 in Minnesota. This was 45 years after the Korean War had actually ended. To show the magnitude of soldiers who gave up their lives and left their families behind, for the war, just in Minnesota alone there were 94,000 people who served in the “forgotten war” from 1950 to 1953.

The memorial consists of a larger than statue of a solider who is moving towards a shadow of another solider, this is said to represent the soldiers lost in action. There are paving stones that have been engraved with a chronological account od the events of the war. Behind the soldier is a wall made up of stone blocks that have the names of the 700 Minnesotans who died in the Korean War.
Engraved Paving Stones

The design and construction of this war memorial was developed by a great team of Landscape architects, contractors and a sculptor named Art Norby. The engraved paving stones allow those who lost their lives for this country to be commemorated and remembered forever. The names of the soldiers were engraved on the paving stones so that for generation to come they will be honored for their bravery. The paving stones are also a mark of respect for the soldiers themselves as well as their families who have suffered the loss.

War memorial Engraved paving stones can be made from several different types of materials. the common materials for engraved pavers are concrete, brick or natural stone paving stones. These materials are strong and durable enough for their surface to be engraved upon, while maintaining the strength of the paver. Engraved pavers when used for war memorials, are generally incorporated into the walkway, sidewalk or the pavements in and around the memorial. They are also commonly placed in walls that have been constructed as part of the memorial.

There are three main types of methods for engraving paving stones, these include; sandblasting, laser engraving and bronze plated engraving. The sandblasting method of engraving paving stones involves taking the desired text or logo, and making a stencil out of it. That stencil is then sandblasted onto the pavers to create the engraved effect. In order to preserve the engraving onto the pavers, it is sealed with a product like lithochrome, which prevents the damaging effects of weather and high traffic areas. Another popular method of engraving pavers is with the use of lasers. Images are lasered onto the pavers, creating an engraved message or icon on the pavers. The technical term for this method is vitralase. Other companies in the engraving industry prefer to use bronze plaques instead of stencils to engrave pavers. The bronze plaque is placed over the pavers and then painted with a protective seal to fight the effects of weather and wear.
