Korea


AS DUSK FELL...


...a flood of shadows moved south through the northern mountains in the Land of the Morning Calm...The sound of padding feet and clanking gear echoed and re-echoed off miles and miles of otherwise silent countryside...
...By midnight, a division of tanks stood poised and waiting at a border the entire world would soon know as the 38th Parallel.
...At dawn, the tanks grumbled awake and tractored forward, leading 7 infantry divisions out of the towering Taebaeks and into the peaceful foothills and valleys below.
......Thus began the Korean War...on Sunday, June 25th, 1950...
..........Millions of unsuspecting people were doomed to violent death--tens of thousands were Americans...But for them, and thousands of their young allies, South Korea would not be free today.

.......This is a brief reminder--The Forgotten War is not forgotten...and neither are those boys and young men who fought it...
......
