Memes, North Korea, and Soldiers: N Command Chaplain performs a blessing over the 55 cases carrying temains of Us Soldiers, soon to be identified How Symbolic Today is the 65th Anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended the Korean War. The war began when North Korea invaded South Korea on June 25, 1950. Twenty-one countries of the United Nations eventually contributed to defend against communist aggression, however, the United States provided approximately 90 percent of the forces. Sometimes referred to as the “Forgotten War,” the Korean War would last for more than three years with nearly 1.8 million U.S. military personnel serving “in country.” The war claimed the lives of 36,000 American troops; a 103,000 more wounded; nearly 7,250 U.S. troops taken prisoner and approximately 7,700 American were declared missing in action. On this same day today UN Command says remains of 55 American service members from the Korean War were returned by North Korea. A U.S. cargo aircraft flew to North Korea to receive the remains and returned promptly to Osan Air Base in South Korea. This victory was made possible by the international policies that have been put in place by our President @realdonaldtrump never forget it. We honor all those who served in Korea as well as those who supported them at home and abroad to secure peace for the Korean peninsula. Your service is not forgotten. Photos: 1.)
