About the Korean War

In June of 1950, the United States rushed to the aid of the Republic of South Korea after they came under the attack of communist North Korea. Many thousands of American men and women were called to active duty to assist the effort — barely five years after the conclusion of World War II.

Although in the beginning it was called a “police action”, the war would eventually call over 1,500,000 Americans to serve during the conflict. Before an armistice was signed in July 1953, the lives of nearly 37,000 Americans, 3,100 United Nations soldiers and 47,000 Republic of South Korean soldiers were lost, and over one million South Korean civilians were killed.

An additional 103,000 Americans were wounded. Over 8,000 are still listed as missing in action. Of those who gave their lives to uphold our nation’s freedom and convictions, over 900 were from the state of Missouri, and over 100 were from the Kansas City area.

Our Mission

To perpetuate the legacy of Korean War Veterans present and past, and the over 900 from the State of Missouri who paid the supreme sacrifice and gave their lives to defend against the terrors of communism.

WITH PREVALENCE OF COVID INFECTIONS IN METRO SEN. MIKE CIERPIOT CANCELS MEET & GREET EVENT

Missouri Senator Mike Cierpiot announced today that due to an abundance of caution and concern for supporters, including many veterans, he has cancelled his Candidate Meet & Greet Event that was scheduled Wednesday, July 27, at the VFW POST 5789 in Lee’s Summit.

Senator Cierpiot of Lee’s Summit is recognized as a major force in securing the designation of the Korean War Veterans Memorial in downtown Kansas City as the official Korean War Memorial for the state of Missouri.

Cierpiot said the Candidate Meet & Greet Event with more than 100 supporters expected just days before the primary election was important to him and his wife Connie, but they did not want to risk the health of any Missourians as COVID cases increase in the Kansas City metro area.

Cierpiot is seeking reelection to the 8th Senatorial District seat covering Eastern Jackson County.
