Do you know the dates of the Korean War or why we fought there? Retired Marine, Lt. Col. Larken Spivey, a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War who served President Nixon in the White house, joins us today to answer those questions and share stories of the Korean War with us.
He will talk about some of the ways he believes God has blessed America as he gives us a brief history of the the war. Expect to wipe a tear as we enjoy several inspiring stories from Lt. Col Spivey.
We remember the heroes of our World Wars and Vietnam, let's not forget the brave men and women who served in Korea.
Michael Breen has been working in Korea for more than 30 years as a journalist with The Guardian, The Korea Times and others. He's the author of 'The Koreans: Who They Are, What They Want and Where Their Future Lies' and the CEO of Insight Communications Consultants.
In the first of a two-part interview he discusses what brought him to South Korea, the Origins of the Korean War and the work of Korean Historian Bruce Cummings.
Donald J. Farinacci is a US Army Vietnam-era Veteran. After his military service (1966-1969), he became an attorney. Donald J. Farinacci is the author of When One Stood Alone, Last Full Measure of Devotion: A Tribute to America's Heroes of the Vietnam War and, his upcoming book Truman and MacArthur: Adversaries for a Common Cause.According to the description of Truman and MacArthur: Adversaries for a Common Cause, “The author's purpose in writing this book was to tell a story of events which occurred during a brief but momentous period in American history, involving two extraordinary men, President Harry S. Truman and General of the Army, Douglas MacArthur. The story tells of their interaction during a time of grave national crisis, how they veered badly off course and ultimately collided head-on. It was a collision which both altered the course of history and irreparably changed their personal destinies.
What is related here is first and foremost a human story, but one that plays out against the panorama of the Korean War—a nasty, brutish and fearsome slice of hell where what was at stake was nothing less than the determination of whether the Communist Sino-Soviet alliance would gain dominion by force over large regions of the continent of Asia or be contained and held in check by a coalition of United Nations Forces led by the United States. As the drama unfolded during a critical period of approximately ten months in 1950 and 1951, the all-pervasive tension holding the principal players in its grip was the ever-present threat of nuclear war looming over all of humankind.
We are a group of disabled Veterans who are active advocates for the rights of veterans who have served in the United States Military and their families. We advocate for the rights of veterans. We talk to the the politicians who want to talk to us and we promote Americanism.

We’re going to report a miracle story today from a Marine in the Korean war, who actually experienced an angel on the battlefield.
Ronnel Corre will talk about the consequence and the destruction of the Korean War. Ronnel will specifically talk about the Korean babies who were left in a struggle of finding new homes. These babies were struggling due to the lost of immediate family members or due to the struggling and collapsing economy of Korea immediate after the war. Forcing some families to let go of their babies, due to a lack of money. Learn the struggles that these newly adopted Korean babies faced by their newly adopted families who were mostly white who did not know much of their culture, history, customs, etc. These newly adopted Koreans faced a lot of struggles and identity confusion.

Memorial Day and Veteran's Day often get equated, but there is an essential distinction between the two. Veteran's Day honors all who have served the American military in wars. Memorial Day honors those who've perished. It's an annual reminder that wars have grave human costs, which must be both recognized and minimized.
Those costs are not inevitable. We ought to also set aside time to remember those throughout American history who have tried hardest to reduce them, to prevent unnecessary loss of life both American and foreign: war resisters. Dylan Matthew VOX
Today, I will again lift a pint of ale in memory of my three friends and their comrades who died in Vietnam.
I honor them without honoring the aggressive and unjust war in which they fought.I don't know what their motivation was to join the military, maybe it was simply that the draft gave them no choice, but it really doesn't matter. What I do know for sure is that their lives were unnecessarily cut short. Sam Webb
