The Forgotten War

Sixty years ago today the North Korean army invaded South Korea, launching the Korean War, a war that never ended.

Helicopters and jets were introduced into warfare.

Thanks to all the brave men and women who donned our nation's uniform in Korea in the effort to preserve democracy and halt the advance of communism in that small part of the world. Today South Korea is a thriving free country while North Korea remains a dark place.

Thanks for this reminder Rick. Also MASH units were introduced making the evac of wounded so much more efficient.

Ever wonder what might have happened if MacArthur remained in charge?

Yes, I think you may be right about that.
