The Forgotten War. The Korean War. It started 25 June 1950. God bless the South Koreans and may those who lived through the active war years educate the younger ones and tell them of the Americans who helped them fight for the freedoms and prosperity they enjoy today. God bless our Korean War vets. It started 60 years ago and still the Korean War has not ended. God bless all our troops and those stationed in South Korea who truly are guarding freedom's frontier.
