The Korean War Anniversary Part 1

On June 25, 1950, North Korean forces poured across the 38th Parallel in attempt to forcibly unite Korea under a communist government. It was the beginning of three years of conflict that would see the front lines oscillate wildly during the first year of combat before stabilizing into bitter stalemate. Between today and July 27, 2013, which will mark the 60th anniversary of the signing of the armistice, Defense Media Network will be running stories and photo slideshows to commemorate the anniversary of “The Forgotten War” and illuminate certain aspects of this conflict.
