"It's OK to Mention the Korean War"
"Forgotten Veterans of the Forgotten War"


If you served in Korea from 1945 to the present, or anywhere during the Korean War era (June 1950-January 1955), you should join the Korean War Veterans Association

The KWVA was formed in 1985.
Presently there are over 11,000 members across the nation. With active chapters in every state and 21 other nations.

Many Korean War veterans feel that their efforts in defense of liberty and democracy has nearly been forgotten in almost five decades since that Sunday afternoon on June 25, 1950 when war enveloped "The Land of the Morning Calm".

The Korean Conflict lasted 37 months and 2 days. But because a peace treaty has never been signed, only a cease fire, the war continues to this day -- the longest war in America's history.
