From June 1950 through July 1953, American military forces fought to turn back an invasion of Communist North Korea into Democratic South Korea. The war has never officially ended, but an Armistice Agreement was signed on July 27, 1953. There is still no peace treaty.

Over 33,000 Americans were killed on the battlefields of Korea, including 27 Bedford County men.

Thank you Korean War Veterans for serving in this difficult time. We have not forgotten.
