LEGACY OF THE KOREA WAR FOUNDATION INC
April 24, 2011

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

Ways to make it better...
