    how could the designers of the memorial be so stupid not to think no would notice?

    no on replacement but maybe the designers of the memorial should be asked to repay the monies they were paid to design it.

    Yes, it should be replaced.

    If the company designing/building it doesn't have a signed "proof" from the town okaying the final product, the town should sue to collect whatever's been paid. If the old geezer who was in charge signed off, too bad for the town.

    Or they should start over and do it right at their own cost. And call in historians and proofreaders. I'm sure there are many folks with expertise and knowledge who will enthusiastically volunteer.

    If I knew they had money to burn I would say yes, replace it. However, a Rust Belt small city
    of ~21,000 whose population has been declining for the last several decades does not have
    money to burn. In fact, money must be damn tight for them to have to outsource the project to India.

    They should definitely replace the stone block at the base of the memorial with a new one
    listing the names of all those who died, leaving none out this time.

    It is really too bad that so few people alert to and aware of historical detail, including even
    the veterans committee which signed off on the design.

    I wasn't referring to the city eating the cost; I meant whoever was commissioned to create the monument (if those who commissioned it did their due diligence).

    Immediately and the guy who called those families "nit pickers" needs to be investigated for possible kick backs in doing this.

    I didn't read the text of the article before looking at the monument. What I saw was a tribute for our past to present warriors, from WWII to Desert Storm. Something to remind us Korea was part of our military history with a place among the more remembered wars our men fought and died in.

    Perhaps the 'missing' names could be added as stones guarding the main monument?

    Mistakes happen, the 10 Commandment monument put on the Oklahoma State Capitol grounds had mis-spellings, I don't recall any screams over the mistakes... the whole monument is another story...

    As that one TV commercial says-'if your going to do it...do it right'. That is pathetic.
    Liberalismódividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.
