The presentation of the medal is part of the 60 h anniversary observance of the 1950-53 Korean War. More than 54,000 Americans died in the conflict, 103,000 were wounded and more than 8,000 are still listed as missing in action. Heads of Korean War veteran chapters around the U.S. received a letter from the Republic of Korea President, Lee Myung-bak... "We salute your courage in enduring the unimaginable horrors of war," the letter states. "We pay tribute to your commit- ment to protecting liberty and freedom...We are proud of what we managed to accom- plish and we wish to dedi- cate these achievements to you...You will always remain our true heroes and we assure you that we will continue to do our best to make you proud."

Pulaski 792-37;78 09 ! 1-502HO In 1950, after World War II, a new conflict broke out at the edge of the Asian con- tinent. It was an example of the Cold War tuming hot - pitting the US, Republic of Korea, and their allies against the USSR, North Korea, and communist China. It was marked by dramatic battles and a devastating death toll. Estimates vary, but at least two million Korean civilians, up to 1.5 million communist forces, and around 30,000 US, 400,000 South Korean, and 1,000 UK troops are believed to have died. For two of the three years that the war was under way, both sides were actually trying to negotiate a peace. A ceasefire was eventually signed on July 27, 1953. Now, 60 years later, the two Koreas remain technically at war. A peace treaty has never been signed. The border between North and South Korea con- tinues on military alert with mines, artillery, and hundreds of troops.
