They call it the Forgotten War. From 1950 to 1953 more than 1.7 million Americans served in the Korean Conflict. More than 34,000 were killed. While World War II veterans have been celebrated as the Greatest Generation, Korean vets have never been recognized as heroes. On May 22, more than a dozen Brookland-Cayce High school graduates will join nearly 100 Korean War veterans on an Honor Flight to Washington, DC.
