The Korean War

 ... aka 'The Forgotten War'
 ... aka 'Truman's Police Action'

 ... began 60 years ago on June 25th, 1950, along the 38th parallel.

It was a war that was never declared as a war but rather termed a "police action".

A Few Facts About "The Forgotten War":

33,741  US Dead
23,615  Killed In Action
92,134  US Wounded (not including those lightly wounded and returned to action)

389 POWs were known to have been alive after all U.S. POWs supposedly returned.

I doubt that the men who fought at Inchon and the Chosin Reservoir   and the families of those KIA have ever forgotten.
