National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day

Each year both America and South Korea observe National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day on July 27.

This day was started as a way to commemorate and recognize the peace treaty that triggered a cease-fire in a long-standing war.

The Korean War is a significant chapter in American history in which approximately 50,000 American troops died in the conflict, over 100,000 were wounded, and thousands of others were held captive as prisoners of war.

On National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day we are encouraged to take some moments for reflection on the service and sacrifices of American troops during this conflict.
