The Korean War, often referred to as "The Forgotten War," was fought from June 25, 1950, to July 27, 1953. This website is dedicated to thanking and honoring all the veterans of the Korean War, their families, and especially those who lost loved ones in that war. The U.S. Army will never stop honoring the service and sacrifice of Korean War veterans. This site should serve as a tool to educate Americans of all ages about the historical significance of the Korean War.

The Hangul text in the banner says "6-25," or "yoog-ee-o" in Korean. South Koreans often call the Korean War, "6-25," because this war started, June 25, 1950.
