Korea Memorial
Freedom is not free

I will never leave you or forsake you
Hebrews 13 5

In my generation this was not the first occasion
when the strong attacked the
weak. Communism was acting in Korea just as
Hitler, Mussolini and the Japanese had acted ten
fifteen and twenty years earlier. I felt certain that
If South Korea was allowed to fall communist leaders
would be emboldened to override nations
closer to our own shores.
President Harry Truman

For if the trumpet give an uncertain voice who
shall prepare himself for war
Corinthians Chapter 12 8
