One of the harshest wars fought in American history. A war that many to this day still don't talk about or pay enough tribute to those soldiers who came home quietly and were forgotten. The Korean War also known as the "The Forgotten War" or "The Unknown War" was fought from June 25, 1950 until July 27, 1953. It has been 70 years since this war ended with over 140,000 U.S. casualties, a country divided into north and south by the 38th Parallel. The Korean War is considered to be the most destructive conflict in the modern area with an estimated 2-3 million civilians. Join GORUCK in honoring those Soldiers who whet off to defend freedom in extremely harsh conditions, only to come back to the U.S. forgotten and unspoken.
