The Department of Defense 60th Anniversary of Korean War Commemoration Committee's mission is threefold:..
HONOR the service and sacrifice of Korean War Veterans, American service members, and their allies who fought heroically to preserve Freedom.
COMMEMORATE the key events of the war. The Korean War was the first "hot"conflict of the Cold War and includes both historic battles and offensives as well as important technological and medical advances.
EDUCATE the American people about the significance of the Korean War. The Korean War is often referred as "The Forgotten War." The events and battles of the war are little known by the American public today. The committee seeks to further the public's awareness of the history and impact of the Korean War.
