Constructing a korean war memorial?

My father recently met a patient of his who had fought in the Korean War. This man was around his 70s, and during his early years of retirement a long time ago, he had taken on a project of erecting a Korean War memorial. This project of his, however, was left untouched for a very long time due to difficulties and of old age. My father asked me if I was interested in continuing and carrying out what this man had left unfinished. My family line is 100% Korean, most of whom had also fought in the Korean War as well. Is this a good idea? What will it take for me, along with supporters, to help approve of a Korean War memorial near my local vicinity (Ohio)? It certainly does not have to be as grand as the memorial in D.C., but something moderate enough to explain a strong message about the Forgotten War. How much money approximately will I need to raise? What are the risks? I am sophomore in high school, and I thought this was a great opportunity for me and for others to pursue.
