Route 35 in Monmouth County is to be named Chosin Few Memorial Highway to honor those who fought 70 years ago at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, according to a press release by US Senator Joe Kyrillos. The bill, signed by Governor Christie, was co-sponsored by State Senator Sean Kean, Assemblyman Dave Rible, and Senator Kyrillos. NJ DOT will begin erecting appropriate signage soon.

Leatherneck magazine has a series of articles online related to the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, considered the Iwo Jima of the Korean War.
