Today is the 64th anniversary of the Korean War. It began on June 25, 1950, when troops from North Korea launched an attack on the south. Three years later, the fighting ended with an armistice, but no treaty, that still holds today. The conflict also resulted in a permanently divided Korean peninsula.
The War Memorial of Korea has an impressive display of items related to the Korean War and other significant conflicts throughout the country’s history. In recognition of the anniversary, I visited the War Memorial to take some photos and share them with you.
