KOREAN WAR 64TH ANNIVERSARY OF WORLD'S LONGEST CEASE FIRE.

NOTHING IN THE NEWS TODAY, THE FORGOTTEN WAR retains its record.

Today is the 64th anniversary of the cease fire of the Korean War.

No peace treaty was ever signed. In the last 60 years, uneasy peace has been maintained on the Korean peninsula, with the world's longest cease-fire.

GOOGLE THIS ANNIVERSARY AND YOU WILL FIND NOTHING ABOUT THE KOREAN WAR NOR THE CEASE FIRE!

Even today Korean War Veterans are being diagnosed with PTSD as a result of their service, in many cases for actions up to 67 years ago.

We did our job, came home unsung and resumed our lives. No celebrations, no spitting, only an occasional question like "where have you been?"

KOREAN WAR VETERANS REMEMBER AND KNOW "FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!"

Most of us are between 85 and 90 years old. We KNOW what we did without acclaim.

We don't at this point care what others think about us and what we did, but we would like the sacrifices of the fallen remembered. Not a lot to ask..
 
I guess my message is “All except 6”
 
We remember the sacrifices of OUR war!  We have grown to live with the fact, we are alone in that…
