This past weekend will be in my heart forever. I had the pleasure of taking my grandpa to Washington DC to visit the war memorials where he was honored for his services in WWII, Korean, and Vietnam wars. This experience leaves me beyond speechless. Please like if you have love for our veterans! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 #veterans#wwii#koreanwar#vietnamwar#usa#america#merica
A dedication to my Uncle Warren he pass away on 5 Oct at the age of 87. An Army veteran of the Korean War, he was married to his wife for 62 years. When his son's baseball team couldn't get a ball field to practice he build on on one of his pastures so they could play. This great man taught me how to shoot, hunt, track, gut, skin and butcher all the animals I took. He also taught me to love this country our Constitution. One of his says "there are some good politicians but none of them can be trusted." A lifetime member of the the NRA he has been fitting to protect the 2nd Amendment since shortly after the Korean War. He will be missed. #myuncle#losingafamilymember#greatamerician#armyveteran#koreanwar#gonebutnotforgotten
"Sea Fury, MiG Encounter." Robert Taylor

Operation Ripper, also known as the Fourth Battle of Seoul, was a United Nations military operation conceived by the commander US Eighth Army, General Matthew Ridgway, during the Korean War. The operation was intended to destroy as much as possible of the Chinese communist People's Volunteer Army (PVA) and Korean People's Army (KPA) forces around Seoul and the towns of Hongch'on, 50 miles (80 km) east of Seoul, and Chuncheon, 15 miles (24 km) further south. The operation also aimed to bring UN troops to the 38th parallel. It followed upon the heels of Operation Killer, an eight-day UN offensive that concluded February 28, to push PVA/KPA forces north of the Han River. The operation was launched on March 6, 1951 with the US I Corps and IX Corps on the west near Seoul and Hoengsong and US X Corpsand ROK III Corps in the east, to reach "Line Idaho", an arc with its apex just south of the 38th Parallel in South Korea. #koreanwar#war#wroldwar#history#greatwar#greathistory#koreanhistory
Last Saturday, we gathered in the courtyard of the MNHM to pay tribute to the 85 Luxembourgish volunteers who fought in the Korean War (June 25, 1950 – July 27, 1953) amongst the United Nations Command.
This year, four Luxembourgish Korean War Veterans attended our annual Korean War commemoration ceremony: Joseph (dit 'Tun') Wagener, Elie Kryloff, Jean-Michel Clement and Gilbert Hauffels.
One major mission of the MNHM is to sustain collective remembrance and to express gratitude to those who engaged in the defense of peace, liberty and human rights.

For 10 yrs I’ve been saying I’ll marry when the #KoreanWar officially ends. It looks imminent and I might not have to die an old maid. 😅
I even got proposed the other day—by the taxi driver in #Samoa , named Sime. He said if I become his wife then he’s willing to immigrate to #NewZealand 🇳🇿 or #Australia 🇦🇺 for me. He picked me up at the airport when I arrived the first time in #Samoa from #Sydney , and again when I arrived back in Samoa 🇼🇸 from #AmericanSamoa 🇦🇸 four days later. He also took me to the #waterfall before dropping me off at the hotel singing love songs along the way 🎼. He even came to pick me up again at 4:15am so I can catch my 6:10am flight back to Sydney. ✈️ In all seriousness, I loved my visits to all the islands 🌴 and will forever cherish the genuine hospitality and love I received everywhere I went. ❤️ God has been so good to me. 😇
I’ll be in #Sydney for a day before flying to #China 🇨🇳 , then to #LA 🇺🇸 before arriving in #Orlando to reunite with my Grandpas at the Annual Korean War Veterans Association convention on 10/20.
Please continue to pray for me in my final home stretch! 🤗

Finally wrapped on the documentary film "Dandelion Spores" directed by the super talented @__byrachelkim__ .
Picture taken by the amazing @otcinema
The film showcases how art can be used as a tool to portray the Korean immigration story after the Korean War. In addition it reveals the truth of Korean history with an artistic performance by Korean creative performer Dohee lee.
Look out for this at festivals and possibly your tv in the future 😉

American Samoa 🇦🇸—where America’s day ends. It’s the last country in the international time zone. It’s also my final destination in my journey around the world, the US and the Pacific to thank #KoreanWar#veterans —I’m now making my long way back to the US, 🇺🇸 and eventually home.
It was the most difficult and farthest place to travel—but it made it that much more precious and worthwhile. I thank all the Angels 😇 who joined me in honoring the veterans.
I’m sad to leave this beautiful isle with wonderful people,🌴 but I take with me unforgettably precious memories filled with warmth, gratitude and #love . ❤️ *Thx Sandy for showing me around, albeit too briefly. No one will ever believe I climbed a hill⛰, a rock, and a tree (all in a dress 👗 and flip flops)! But I have pictures to prove that I can totally be an #islandgirl . 😉
Faafetai 💕 Tofa.

What did the recent history of Korea look like?
Roots: After the end of WWII in 1945, the Allies divided Korea into a northern area (protected by the Soviets) and a southern area protected (primarily by the United States). In 1948, this partition became the modern states of North and South Korea. The new premier of North Korea, Kim il-Sung, launched the Korean War in 1950 in an attempt to reunify the country under Communist rule. The conflict ended with a cease-fire in 1953.
Resurgence: On the ruins left by the war, North Korea had built an industrialized command economy. Che Guevara, then a Cuban government minister, visited North Korea in 1960, and proclaimed it a model for Cuba to follow. In 1965, the British economist Joan Robinson described North Korea's economic development as a "miracle". Stay tuned to know the repercussions of having nuclear weapons on North Korea.
