CENTENNIAL, Colo. – The Republic of South Korea has funded a commemorative book intended to serve as a Thank You to Korean War veterans who served on the peninsula from 1950-53.
The book, titled “Korea Reborn: A Grateful Nation Honors War Veterans for 60 Years of Growth,” was printed by Story Rock in very limited quantities and is not intended for the general public.
A PDF version of the book is available to the public at: http://www.remembermyservice.com/koreapreview.html
Story Rock has distributed a very limited number of hard copies to Colorado, where the distribution is taking place through several channels. These include state chapters of state veteran’s service organizations such as Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, Korean War Veterans Association, and Veterans Affairs.
Additionally, books have been distributed to Korean War veterans who are residents of State veteran’s nursing homes.
For those Korean War veterans who are not members of a veteran’s organization or a state vet’s nursing home, the book may be procured by going to a nearby Colorado National Guard readiness center during normal business hours and asking for one.
