Amanda;


The war in Korea was a result of the Communist North Korea invasion of South Korea on 25 June 1950. It was a very important war in that it is the only time the United States took up arms to forcefully halt a communist takeover of a peaceful nation.
I refer you to Korean War Websites. One being www.theforgottenvictory.org. Another is www.kwva.org
Also, a very good one is www.koreanwar-educator.org.
I think you will find these most helpful.

My apoligies to Kathy. Being new to this site, I replied to your message in effor.
