About this webinar

Sometimes referred to as the twentieth centuries “Forgotten War” The Korea War has been overshadowed by the larger conflicts both before and afterwards-namely World War II and Vietnam. This lecture focuses on numerous genealogical records covering this military conflict including Official Military Personnel Files, Morning Reports, after action records, and records of casualties and prisoners of war. Although only lasting 3 years where communist and capitalistic democratic forces staged war against each other; this conflict would not be forgotten as it caused tensions between the participants for decades after the fighting stopped.
