What is Remember 727?
Remember 727 is a non profit organization that commemorates the National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day (July 27) - to remember the Forgotten War, thank our veterans and hope for peace.
The Korean War was not just a war between Koreans. From 1950-1953, 1.8 million American men and women served in the Korean War, including 600,000 African Americans, 25,000 Japanese Americans, 20,000 Chinese Americans, and 148,000 Hispanic Americans. The U.S. suffered 54,246 casualties and 8,176+ plus POW/MIAs.
In total, the Korean War involved 25 nations: UN Allied (22) -Republic of Korea, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Colombia, Ethiopia, France, Greece, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, Medical: Denmark, Italy, Norway, India, Sweden; Communist Forces (3)- Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, People’s Republic of China, Soviet Union.
The Korean War claimed lives of more than 2.5 million Koreans and separated more than 10 million Korean families, including 100,000 Korean Americans who have yet to meet their families in the North.
The 3-mile wide buffer zone between the two Koreas, known as the DMZ, is the most heavily armed border in the world. Today the Two Koreas remain the only divided nation in the world and is technically at war.
