Mission: Korean Americans and Korea War veterans join to educate Americans, especially students, about the Korean War. Specifically, how the Korean War secured freedom for South Korea, America, and the world. To build and leave a legacy of the Korean War that will never be forgotten.
Programs: To fund the distribution of 7,000 books titled Korean War Education for Students to Korea War veterans who go to schools and community centers to talk about the Korean War. These Korean War veterans participate in an ongoing Tell America Program to teach students across America about the Korean War. This is the first educational program initiated by our newly formed Legacy of the Korea War Foundation
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
