Standing on the very bridge where he gained his freedom, Arden Rowley shares his experiences June 27 as a prisoner of war during the Korean War, with the help of his escort Yoon Bo-Young, U.S. Forces Korea, and with U.S. and Republic of Korea Soldiers guarding him on the Bridge of No Return, which crosses into North Korea. 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)
