"Where the Hell is Korea?" - Warfare in the Land of Sorrow


On June 25, 1950, the North Korean People's Army attacked south across the three-year-old Demilitarized Zone that separated North Korea from South Korea. It was a blatant, unprovoked, and reprehensible act of aggression that led to three full years of brutal warfare and, ultimately, more than 65 years of an unstable armistice.

The exhibit at the U.S. Army Heritage & Education Center "Where the Hell is Korea?" - Warfare in the Land of Sorrow, showcases a variety of U.S. Army Soldiers who served in each of the phases of the Korean War. Using original artifacts and archival materials from the collection, as well as unique immersive vignettes, the exhibit highlights the ground-level realities of one of America's "forgotten wars."
