 The forgotten war.....On June 25, 1950 at approximately 4 a.m.
(Korean Time & some 12 hours ahead of the United States) the
Democratic People's Republic of Korea Army (DPRK - North Korea)
artillery and mortars open fire on Republic of Korea (ROK - South Korea). The opening barrage was followed by
tank and infantry att...acks all along the Parallel. At 11 a.m. North Korea
announced a formal declaration of war.

The weather extremes were unbearable. 40 below in the winter.
