oin us on Tuesday, June 25th, at 2:00 p.m. for a poignant Korean War Remembrance Ceremony hosted by the Veterans History Museum of the Carolinas. This event will take place at the historic Ingram Auditorium, nestled on the picturesque campus of Brevard College in Brevard.

As we mark the 74th anniversary of the commencement of the Korean War on June 25, 1950, let us reflect on the profound impact of this significant chapter in history. The Korean War stands as one of the most devastating conflicts of all time, leaving a lasting imprint on the Korean peninsula and the world.

During its three-year duration from 1950 to 1953, the Korean War wrought unparalleled destruction, with every major Korean city bearing the scars of battle. Tragically, an estimated 2½-3 million lives were lost in the turmoil.

The Korean War also holds the distinction of being the first military confrontation of the Cold War era. It saw the forces of democracy, represented by the United States and 20 other member-countries of the United Nations, stand against the Communist powers of North Korea, China, and the Soviet Union.

The sacrifices made during this conflict were immense. Nearly 37,000 American servicemen and women gave their lives in defense of South Korea, while more than one million South Koreans, both civilian and military, perished amidst the intense battles and prolonged attrition warfare.

Join us as we come together to honor the bravery and sacrifice of those who served and remember the enduring legacy of the Korean War.
