The videos average 8 mins with most of them in two parts. So instead of hosting them in this article, here is a direct link to the YouTube – WarInKorea’s Channel.

MCOM-K spokesman Edward N. Johnson said:

“This collection of videos and still photographs really is a treasure trove of historical information about the Korean War and the years that followed,”

From these YouTube and Flickr sites, users will find direct links to other IMCOM-K sites that focus on military life for those stationed in Korea today.

“This gives them an opportunity to learn more about the Korean War,” said Johnson, ” but also … a chance to showcase some of the things that are going on in Korea or that we’ve already accomplished to support our soldiers and families.”

  1. Thank you for assembling the photographs. I am one of the individuals who never served, but greatly appreciates and respects the dedication and commitment of those who did serve. I hope this work gets the attention it deserves.

  2. Ditto Mr. Mason. And thank you.

  3. Thank you for the pictures. My father served. He has been gone since 97. I looked for his face in every shot. He was part of the tank destroyers.

  4. I was touring in Korea on June 25, 2001, and witnessed the ceremony of leaving a flower on every grave of every military person buried at the international Cemetary. I watched UN GI’s wearing their old uniform shirts crying at such ceremonies; but they had come to Korea to remember the war’s end and fallen friends. I watched older Korean citizens buying them dinners, drinks or just shaking their hands in gratitude. I watched college age and younger Korean citizens cross the streets to stay away from these UN vets. I heard some young people yelling in anger at these soldiers. Our Korean guides would not translate what these shouted unpleasentries. I am not old enough to remember this war but as a Tae Kwon Do Black Belt, I thought I should learn some of this history. I shall not forget.

  5. thos pictures were so devestating
