Some images from the Korean War conflict. Please note that there are some very graphic images as well - so please be warned.

From "The Big Picture"...

"This Friday, June 25th, it will have been sixty years since the beginning of the Korean War in 1950. After decades of Japanese occupation, Korea was divided in two by Allied Forces at the end of World War II, with the south administered by the U.S. and the north by Soviet Russia. Deep divisions built over several years, leading to skirmishes and finally an invasion by North Korean troops on June 25th, 1950. The United Nations sent troops and support from 21 countries to support South Korea, primarily from the United States and Britain. The war lasted for three years, with large advances and retreats on both sides, and many casualties. Hundreds of thousands of civilians and soldiers were killed. The two Koreas are technically still at war since hostilities ended in a ceasefire, not a peace treaty in 1953. Though it is often referred to as "The Forgotten War", I hope this collection of photographs helps us to remember the events of 1950-53, those involved, and the legacy that still remains, sixty years later. (48 photos total)"

Thanks Laura, the more of these pictures I find Dad took the more amazed I am that he took them! He was into photography when he was young the same as I have been into IT stuff. He still has his developing equipment.

Hey john!

Awesome photos. My dad was also in the Korean War and he had a lot of photos also. I wish I had them at hand to post them.
