The Korean War & The Korean War Veterans Memorial: FREE Online Program via Zoom

Learn about Washington, DC’s much-admired Korean War Veterans Memorial and the sometimes mis-understood military conflict that led to its creation, the Korean War. Our program takes place on the 67th anniversary of the end of the Korean War on July 27, 1953. This FREE online / virtual program will provide an overview of both the Korean War and the Korean War Veterans Memorial. The event is open to all, and since its online / virtual via Zoom you do not need to be in Washington, DC to participate. The program will be hosted by Robert Kelleman, the founder/director of the non-profit community organization Washington, DC History & Culture, Harry Phillips, an expert on Arlington National Cemetery, and Michael Draper of the National Park Service. __________________________ The Korean War (June 25, 1950 - July 27, 1953) was a war between North Korea (with the support of China and the Soviet Union) and South Korea (with the support of the United Nations, principally from the United States). The war began exactly seventy years ago, on June 25, 1950, when North Korea invaded South Korea. The Korean War was among the most destructive conflicts of the modern era, with approximately 3 million war fatalities and a larger proportional civilian death toll than World War II or the Vietnam War. During the Korean War 36,574 Americans were killed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_War The Korean War Veterans Memorial is located in Washington, D.C.'s West Potomac Park, southeast of the Lincoln Memorial and just south of the Reflecting Pool on the National Mall. It memorializes those who served in the Korean War. The Korean War Veterans Memorial is one of the most-popular memorials on the National Mall. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_War_Veterans_Memorial __________________________ Zoom Meeting Info: The FREE program is open to all, and since it’s an online/virtual event via Zoom you can connect from anywhere in the world.
