Remember Korea

Today is the 60th anniversary of the start of the Korean War.

My father was a combat veteran of that war, and like many others who served, was indelibly marked by it.

Thousands lost their lives and those who survived were changed forever in this 'police action'.

The Korean War is the Forgotten War.  How many times have you heard someone mention World War II and then skip right to Vietnam?  There was a war in between that one, which took over 58,000 American lives and left the Korean peninsula with untold destruction, losses, and families divided for the last 60 years.  They are still technically in a state of war.  American troops have been stationed there on the DMZ ever since.

Just take the time to remember for a moment.  Thank you.
