From the Yalu River to the Chosin Reservoir, metro-east residents fought in a war that was never officially declared a war by Congress. It was called “The Forgotten War,” but the News-Democrat is asking local Korean War veterans to remember. Here, we will share vets’ images and words, as we did in 2008 with the Our War series. You can still go online to bnd.com/ourwar to see the stories, pictures and videos of 67 metro-east veterans of World War II. To participate in Our War: Korea, contact the News-Democrat via e-mail at email@example.com or call us at (618) 239-2510.
