T2

Korean War veterans file into “T2,” a temporary building straddling the military demarcation line between North and South Korea, where representatives meet to hammer out agreements between the two nations. The veterans also visited Observation Post Dora, The Bridge of No Return and Imjingak during the June 27 trip along the Demilitarized Zone. The Korean Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs, in cooperation with the Korean Veterans Association and U.S. Forces Korea, conducted a “Revisit Korea” trip June 24-28 for American and overseas Korean veterans of the Korean War. Korean War Veterans Association representatives from 21 nations also participated in the program. Veterans also visited the War Memorial of Korea and Seoul National Cemetery, and were honored during a private dinner and reception. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Keith Anderson, USFK PAO)
