Paying Homage to the Brave Men and Women of Korean War
North Korea is still a thorn that needs dealt with.
Check it out:
Sixty years ago today, the armistice was signed to end the brutal three-year war that had devastated the Korean Peninsula.
North Korea’s invasion in June 1950 made all too clear the true nature of the regime — its willingness to blatantly violate international agreements, its eagerness to use military attacks to achieve political objectives, and its utter disregard for the lives of Korean citizens.
Leaders and citizens of the United States and the Republic of Korea rightly pay homage to the brave men and women of our armed forces for their defense of Korea and perseverance at times when it must have seemed that even hope had died. We humbly honor their service and remember that far too many brave young souls paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect our shared values of freedom, democracy, and human rights.
