Remembering The Forgotten War

It was 58 years ago on Wednesday that what many call "America's Forgotten War" ended in Korea.

Wednesday night at the VFW on Seymour Highway in Wichita Falls those who served in that war were remembered. The war only lasted three years but more than 1 million soldiers lost their lives fighting on both sides. More than 2.5 million civilians were also killed. We spoke to one veteran who was proud to remember those who fought so bravely.

"We just took time out to do a short program. Everybody eat, break bread, and give thanks for the things we have and give thanks to veterans," said retired USAF Michael Hood.

It was on Wednesday's date in 1953 that the demilitarized zone was established and a cease fire was signed ending the war. But, the memories still live on today.
