Yesterday I took a trip to the Korean War Memorial. Sometimes the Korean war is called the “Forgotten War” because people do not talk about it much. There were brave souls from Kansas who fought across the rocky hills and mountains of Korea, and today is a day to remember them.
This will be a pictorial essay because when it comes to honoring theÂ heros who fought off a brutal communist regime and who freed the people of South Korea, words fail to be enough.
To continue the memorial, some video tributes to our military:
A tribute to the Coast Guard who have not only contributed to the war effort in foreign locales but also protect us and every inch of our coast.Â
A tribute to the US ARMY artillery as they test some of their new, advanced weapons. The US Army has been giving our enemies unparalelled hell for centuries, itâ€™s great to see they continue to sharpen their methods and skills.
This tribute for the Marines shows them as our enemies see them, in a firefight at night.
A fine tribute to the USAF Thunderbirds.
The recent threeÂ force group sortie into the PersianÂ Gulf Â was a necessary move to calm things in region and to re-establish international waterways called to question during theÂ BritishÂ sailorÂ kidnapping crisis.Â Hereâ€™s a great video of the Naval forces in the Gulf, with the coast of Iran just over the horizon.
