Observation Post Dora

Korean War veterans along with South Korean college students visit Observation Post Dora, June 27, along with several other areas along the Demilitarized Zone, as part of “Revisit Korea,” a program to bring Korean War veterans back to Korea to visit battle sites and monuments, and to be recognized for their contributions to South Korea’s freedom. 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 Choi Ho-Gyu, USFK PAO)
