Remembering the Korean War January 14, 2017

REMEMBERING THE KOREAN WAR

This project is supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library services.

Saturday, January 14
10 am – noon

Downtown Chandler
Public Library
22 S. Delaware St.
Chandler, AZ 85225

Between 1950 and 1953, over 5 million Americans served in the Korean War, often called the “Forgotten War.”

Local Korean War veterans will share their stories, including former POW Arden Rowley, and Marine Corps veterans Lew Bradley and Ralph Gastelum. In addition, the family of Captain Harry Moore, U.S. Air Force fighter pilot MIA, will discuss his disappearance and their efforts to learn more about his whereabouts.

The program will be moderated by local Korean American writer and historian, Susan Kee.
