59 years ago this very day, the Korean War a.k.a. ‚ÄúThe Forgotten War‚ÄĚ started. If it is even possible, the Coast Guard‚Äôs role in the Korean War would be even more forgotten if it were not for the CG Historian‚Äôs office.
Scott Price‚Äôs piece entitled ‚ÄúThe Forgotten Service in the Forgotten War‚Äú
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 today‚Äôs 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?
