PriorService is proud to offer a large selection of items for Korean War veterans and their families. Often nicknamed “The Forgotten War”, the Korean War was the first war of the Cold War. After the global power shirt resulting from World War II, the dangerous threat of communism was first seen on the Korean Peninsula. The North Korean aggression was supported by the North Korean’s communist allies, the People’s Republic of China and the Soviet Union. The United States and United Nations quickly came to the aid of the overwhelmed South Koreans and narrowly hung on in the initial stages of the war. The war started on June 25th, 1950 with a massive North Korean invasion. The invasion was extremely successful and the allied troops were quickly pushed down the peninsula to an area around Pusan. When the reinforcements finally arrived in large numbers the allies went on the offensive. An amphibious landing at Inchon and a break out of Pusan Perimeter quickly put the North Korean troops in retreat. The allies advance was extremely successful and soon they had passed the 38th Parallel and penetrated deep into North Korea. The advance was halted by a massive influx of Chinese troops and the allies were quickly forced into a fighting retreat. The retreat was stopped and the battle lines became static close to the original border of the 38th Parallel. The battle line moved little until an Armistice was finally reacted on July 27th, 1953. The Korean War was the first battle of the Cold War and the tension on the Korean Peninsula continues to this day. Our selection of items for Korean War Veterans includes tee shirts, golf shirts, sweatshirts, baseball caps, lapel pins, decals, challenge coins, flags and more.
