The Forgotten War? Not!

Korean War Memorial, Washington DCLEST WE EVER FORGET!

Sometimes called the “Forgotten War” or simply a police action (as declared by the UN), the Korean War was spearheaded by U.S. forces and lasted for three years between 1950 and 1953.

America’s most brilliant and successful military leader, General Douglas MacArthur, almost had the war won when he was relieved of duty during the apex of the conflict. As it is, over 36,000 American servicemen and women lost their lives during the Korean War, and for the first time in history jet aircraft were used and engaged in air-to-air combat.

Herewith is a photo of the dramatic Korean War Memorial in Washington, D.C. The 59 Veterans Project is gearing up and connecting with all our 59 national parks to provide education and work opportunities to our military veterans (you can visit our website here: http://www.59veterans.com/), and we welcome your support and participation.

With pride and honor, we salute all our veterans past and present, and offer this special call-out to those who fought and/or served during the Korean War. You will never be forgotten!
