Korean Americans and Korea War vets like me formed this nonprofit to correct the mis--education about the Korea War in American school history books.
McDougal Littell, in its high school textbook "The Americans" delivers a low punch to the stomach of all Korean War Veterans and South Koreans when it calls the Korean War an "unsuccessful war".
Yet, South Korea ranks as the world's fourtheenth largest economy and America's sixth largest trading partner.
Legacy of the Korea War Foundation intends to educate American students by expanding the Tell America Program started by the Korean War Veterans Association. The Tell America Program sends Korea War veterans into schools and community centers across America to teach students about the benefits derived from the Korean War

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've been fortunate enough to see the launching of this important organization. I filed the Form 1023 application for exemption and the IRS granted it 501 (c) (3) exemption late in 2010. We have donations coming in and will distribute funds to the Korea War - The Graybeards in a few days.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Be more widly known to the Korean and the Korean American communities.
