On July 27th 2022 the Korea war Veterans Day is commemorated as the National Korea Veterans Armistice Day. On this day I would like to express my thanks and gratitude to the service men and women who have served, sacrificed and accomplished much with their acts of service during the Korean War. The Korea war took place on June June 25, 1950, to July 27, 1953, and lasted for approximately 3 years. During this time of war 50,000 American troops died over 100,000 were wounded, and there were thousands of prisoners who were held as captives.
As part of the 2022 commemoration a new and renovated National Korean War Veteran Memorial was revealed in Washington, DC., USA. The Wall of Remembrance has inscribed the names of the American soldiers that passed away in the battle of conflict. On this day a Peace Treaty was triggered after the long-standing war.
To commemorate this day, I also take the time to reflect upon former President Trump who was the first ever sitting President to step foot on Korean soil.
To all who have served and sacrificed – thank you for your service.
