The Forgotten War Remembered:

Stories of Korean War Veterans in Their Own Words

By Veterans History Museum volunteer Michael McCarthy

The Forgotten War Remembered. These Korean War veterans remember. It was called “the forgotten war” because few in the States talked about it while the war was going on. Korean War veterans left their families, endured the brutal cold and risked their lives when their country called. WE REMEMBER THEM.
