2000 - 2003

Korean War Plus 50

The Korean War, often called the Forgotten War, raged across the Korean peninsula for three years, from June 25, 1950 when the war broke out to July 27, 1953 when the armistice was signed. The three-year period 2000 - 2003 will mark the 50th anniversaries of many significant events of this war. This website is intended as a central registry for many commemorative activities that will begin on June 25, 2000 and onward.

There already exist many excellent sites that house chronicles of the Korean War as well as directories of many veteran's groups worldwide and we do not intend to duplicate these. This site will list annotated schedule of events and announcements, with a list of links to other sources of information concerning the Korean War.

All those planning various commemorative activities are encouraged to send in relevant informations to be posted here. Email to Prof. M. Y. Han at myhan@phy.duke.edu
