Korean War vets are over­looked

Re “Ser­vice dis­con­nect,” May 30

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

I too am a Korean War vet­eran and would like to thank reader Frank Sei­den for writ­ing on be­half of my fel­low vet­er­ans from that war.

Re­cently, I at­tended a ser­vice on Me­mo­rial Day where a speaker quoted the theme “lest we for­get” and pro­ceeded to men­tion World War II and the wars in Viet­nam and Afghanistan. I im­me­di­ately felt a sting, as surely other vet­er­ans did, for the sac­ri­fice of the more than 30,000 Amer­i­cans who gave their lives fight­ing the Korean War.

Mr. Sei­den, you said it all: It’s the forgotten war.
