The Korean War

Since 1945 the United States has had, first atomic, then nuclear weapons capability in their arsenal. These weapons have the capacity to level whole cities in a single blast and simply vaporize large populations of people – men, women, and children. The individual foot soldiers in all the wars engaged in since then who fought, bled, and sometimes died, did so essentially with both hands tied behind their backs. We showed restraint. They paid the price. The Korean War is sometimes referred to as “the forgotten war”, and the veterans of the forgotten war are also forgotten veterans. Korean War veterans are as worthy as any who preceded or followed them to receive honor, respect, and our eternal gratitude.
