Book available for Korean War vets
The North Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs has announced the arrival and release of the “Korea Reborn: A Grateful Nation Honors War Veterans for 60 Years of Growth” books in North Dakota.
These books are available free to Korean War era veterans who served during the period of June 27, 1950, through May 7, 1975. Surviving families of Korean War veterans are also eligible for a book.
The “Korea Reborn” book is a retrospective look at the Korean War and the years of prosperity that followed. The photos and text tell the story from the perspective of U.S. veterans who served in the conflict, and the Koreans who prospered from the freedom.
Beginning with the events that led up to the war, through the ensuing battlefields across the Korean Peninsula, and ultimately the transformation from a war-torn country into a prosperous nation, this book encapsulates why freedom is worth fighting for, the DVA said.
The department has distributed more than 1,500 of the books to county veteran service officers across North Dakota. Eligible veterans or family members can contact their local county veteran service officer to receive a book. To find your local veteran service officer, visit http://www.nd.gov/veter ans/service-officers/ county or contact your county courthouse.
