Korean War--60 Years

Just 60 years ago today the Korean war started.
To so many people today, that war is just the backdrop for a group of doctors in a MASH unit. When I studied history in high school, we barely got to the end of the Civil War by the end of the year. Not until I got to college did I get a history class on the balance of the country's history. And even then, not much was said about the Korean conflict, when that age was still seething over the war in Viet Nam.I know of one relative who was in the service at time. I don't know if he actually served in Korea or not.
But to all to fought then, all to were wounded, and especially all to died...I salute you.
