A look back at Korea

Tom Murray, Veterans of Foreign Wars state services officer in Kingman, points to a map of the demil-

itarization zone in Korea.

Congress recently passed the Korea Defense Service Medal that will recognize about 1.9 million American soldiers who served in Korea in cease-fire service since July 28, 1954.

American soldiers have patrolled the zone between Communist North Korea and Democratic South Korea for 48 years.
