America and Pentagon Mark 60th Anniversary of the Korean War

 This war of course still is not officially over and why we don't march over the DMZ and straight for Pyongyang in the memory of the men who died during this "forgotten war" letting that imbalanced little troll   Kim Jong Il push the world around with almost 38, 000 troops there for how long is beyond insanity. We should clean his clock and bring THEM home for criminy's sake.

Yet another reason for America to remove the 'mistake from the Great Lake' as soon as humanly possible letting that continue. 
 Anyhow may those men rest in peace. 60 years.
WASHINGTON, June 24, 2010 – Flanked by Korean War veterans, many proudly bearing the medals and insignias of their military service, defense officials commemorated the 60th anniversary of the Korean War and saluted the veterans during a ceremony held at the Pentagon here today

“Americans have always been defined by their courage and character and incredible optimism about their country and its values,” said Joseph W. Westphal, undersecretary of the Army and the event’s keynote speaker. “Korean war veterans are examples of that.”

The Korean War began on June 25, 1950, when North Korea launched an attack on South Korea in an effort to place all of Korea under communist rule. By September 1950, the efforts of U.N., United States and South Korean forces held the North Koreans in check at the Pusan Perimeter.
The war would last three years. Afterward, Korea would remain divided into a free, democratic South and a communist-dominated North. The United States since has had a “long and proud” relationship with South Korea, Westphal said.

During the past 60 years, more than 3.5 million Americans have served military duty tours in Korea, Westphal said. The 28,500 U.S. servicemembers who serve in South Korea today, under the leadership of Army Gen. Walter L. Sharp, he said, exemplify the nation’s ongoing commitment to the defense of South Korea.

South Korea “is a critical ally, a valued partner, an honored friend of the United States,” he said.
