As it prepares for the September launch of its new online program and exhibit called “Korea 65: The Forgotten War Remembered,” our Legacy Washington team gathered about 40 people who are either Korean Americans or connected to the Korean War. They included veterans and people displaced by the war. The group met at the Korean War Memorial on the Capitol Campus in Olympia Monday for photographs, followed by an honorees reception in Secretary of State Kim Wyman’s office and a tour. KING-TV covered the gathering at the Korean War Memorial.
Do you or your family have a connection to the Korean War? Legacy Washington is asking people to share images and short stories from the Korean War that include veterans, adoptees, immigrants, and those on the Homefront for its “Faces of Korea” online photo sharing board.
