It is a day for remembering, the 60th anniversary of the cease-fire in the Korean War. The anniversary will be observed Saturday, July 27, at the Washington Korean War Memorial in Krog Park. The 10 a.m. program is expected to draw many Korean War veterans, their relatives and many others to mark the end of The Forgotten War (1950-53).
It was termed The Forgotten War because it was pretty well ignored even when the cease-fire occurred and when the troops came home. In some instances, it wasn’t mentioned when other wars this country has engaged in were discussed or listed. This fact is rather difficult to understand because we had a draft of men and more than 55,000 casualties!
