June 25, 1950-June 25, 2013

Today is the 63rd anniversary of the start of the Korean War on June 25, 1950. It was not a 'police action' but a damned war, and its aftereffects reverberate on the peninsula today with the separation of Korean families for generations.

There is always talk of World War II veterans and deservedly so, of their great accomplishments and how they're dying off in great numbers every day, but little talk of the Korean War veterans who suffered and died in a dirty little war and are dying off in great numbers every day. They never got the recognition they deserve. My father was one of them.

Please take a minute to remember the people who served in Korea. Thank you.
