That is so awesome. My father, Sgt. Alfred Herbert Knippa served in the Korean War, (and it was a war, not a police action), from 1951-53. He was the company clerk of an engineer-aviation brigade stationed in Tae-Gue, South Korea. Dad was awesome! I have a chalenge coin from that war that I will post ASAP.

I always have liked that one. Although I like all of the military theme commemoratives.


Level 6

I was wrong. We were never at war with North Korea. We were part of the U.N. Police movement with forty other country's. A cease fire was declared with them and the U.N. not us there was no declaration of war. Thanks!!

Beautiful coin! Thank you sharing it!

Nice addition to your collection.

I just recalled something important, especially for you Y.N.'' Technically we, the USA, are still at war with North Korea. We never signed a peace treaty!!!!


Level 3

That's wild. I never knew that. Thanks.


Level 6

Great commemorative. I feel it is an ignored war. An awful lot of people fought and died there. It wasn't like M*A*S*H. Anybody ever hear about it? Almost as bad as Vietnam. Maybe as bad!! Thanks!!

Hi if you look at the commens in the red book you will see many were made to commemorate our soldiers. I think you will like them. Thanks Mike.
