Our Greatest Allies During the Vietnam War

South Korea sent an average of 48,000 troops each year to Vietnam to fight alongside the Americans, Australians and New Zealanders. Over 320,000 Koreans honored their NATO and SEATO commitments,in spite of the threats by their neighbor along their own DMZ back home.

Today, just before Memorial Day in our country, I will take time to honor over 10,000 South Korean soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen, who made the ultimate sacrifice alongside over 58,000 American brothers and sisters.

All I can offer these brave men and women is:

Thank you
