59 years ago this very day, the Korean War a.k.a. â€śThe Forgotten Warâ€ť started. If it is even possible, the Coast Guardâ€™s role in the Korean War would be even more forgotten if it were not for the CG Historianâ€™s office.
Scott Priceâ€™s piece entitled â€śThe Forgotten Service in the Forgotten Warâ€ś
does an outstanding job in detailing the many CG operations during the Korean War.
It is well worth your time to read. Full of lessons learned for todayâ€™s Coast Guard.
A job well done to Korean War veterans from all service branches!
Does anyone know of any books about the CG’s role in the Korean War?
