KDVA’s 70th Commemoration of the Korean War: “I Know A Korean War Veteran Campaign”

For the 70th commemoration of the start of the Korean War, KDVA would like to honor those who served in the war and those who supported them from home.  We would like to hear and share the life stories of Korean War veterans, their families, and the lives they have touched.

Through written stories, photos, and short videos, we hope that people will find new appreciation for our Korean War veterans and the importance of the ROK-U.S. Alliance.  We also hope that veterans and their families will draw closer together as they discover new meaning and appreciation for the veterans’ experiences.

These stories will be living reminders of the immeasurable contributions of our Korean War veterans to the security and prosperity of the enduring ROK-U.S. Alliance.

Starting now, we ask anyone who is a Korean War veteran or knows a Korean War veteran to write short stories and share pictures or videos.

We will select some of these stories to highlight them below, at KDVA events, in the monthly KDVA “Unsung Heroes” Newsletter, and quarterly KDVA “ROK-U.S. Alliance Journal.”

Share Your Stories & Photos –

We ask anyone who is a Korean War veteran or knows a Korean War veteran to write short stories and share them along with pictures or videos with us. Please email your stories and photos to
