The U.S. Congress has launched an investigation into inaccuracies on the Korean War Veterans Memorial's recently-unveiled Wall of Remembrance in Washington D.C.
According to congress on Sunday local time, representatives of the armed services and natural resources committees in the House and Senate sent a letter to U.S. defense secretary Lloyd Austin on March 2, seeking answers regarding the errors.
The letter states that the wall could contain up to one-thousand spelling errors and other inaccuracies, which is supposed to contain the names of more than 36-thousand American service members who died during the Korean War, along with the names of more than 7-thousand Koreans.
The lawmakers expressed concerns that errors of this magnitude had went unnoticed until post-construction and asked for support in finding the communication and research flaws that caused the errors.
Congress has asked Austin to schedule a briefing with relevant committees by March 23.
