They answered a call to defend a country they did not know and a people they had never met.
The United States and South Korea share a long history of friendship and cooperation based on shared values and interests.
This alliance was set in motion by the invasion of South Korea on June 25, 1950. For three years, the fighting on the Korean Peninsula raged. By the time the Armistice was signed on July 27, 1953, over 36,000 American servicemen and 7,100 Korean Augmentation to the United States Army (KATUSA) gave their lives defending the people of South Korea from aggression and ensuring their freedom.
