Fallen, Not Forgotten

More than 100 veterans joined in a service at the National Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu, Hawaii to remember the 456 Hawaiians who lost their lives during the war. The service was held in conjunction with the 16th reunion of Hawaii’s Korean War veterans. Retired Army Gen. David A. Bramlett, giving the keynote address, noted that the economic success of South Korea was built on the sacrifices of the veterans. “The Korean War has never been the forgotten war for Koreans,” Bramlett declared.
