----------------
With the communist invasion of South Korea on 25 June 1950, the United Nations sent out a call to the free world for assistance.

The Government of India decided not to get involved in combat, but contributed an Indian Army medical unit, the 60th Parachute Field Ambulance of the Parachute Regiment which served in Korea for a total of three and a half years (Nov 1950 - May 1954), the longest single tenure by any military unit under the UN flag.
----------------
The unit consisted of 346 Indian Army personnel who provided assistance to 200,000 wounded soldiers, carrying out more than 2,300 field surgeries. They were involved in providing medical cover to the US Army/ROK forces and the Commonwealth Division under the UN Command as well as the local civilians, and were often referred to as 'The Maroon Angels.'
----------------
The unit also looked after North Korean and Chinese PoWs and was involved in providing medical support and a surgical team (seven officers and five jawans) during Operation Tomahawk, the second largest airborne op during the war, launched on 21 March 1951 by the US Army’s 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team.

Today’s word ‘Rain’
Today’s image: ‘Rain at the Korean War Memorial’. In January of 2013 I visited Washington DC and did a night time guided tour in the rain. When we arrived at the Korean War Memorial it was during a heavy downpour. The Soldiers are shown trudging through the battlefield in the rain. It was a life changing experience walking through the memorial in the pouring rain. My father (who passed many years ago) served during the Korean War. I was incredibly moved by the life size figures and felt strangely connected to my Dad while walking in the rain. #uulent uulent2020 #rain #koreanwarmemorial

🇩🇪Und noch ein Bild von einem Denkmal in Washinghton.😉 Hier seht ihr einen Ausschnitt des Kriegerdenkmals des koreanischen Krieges. In einem Dreieck stehen 19 übergroße Edelstahl-Statuen von Frank Gaylord. Die Figuren stellen eine Squad auf Patrouille dar, in der jede Gattung der Streitkräfte der Vereinigten Staaten vertreten ist: 15 Soldaten der US-Army, 2 Marines des Marine Corps, ein Corpsman der Navy und ein Forward Air Controller der Air Force. Diese tragen volle Kampfausrüstung und stehen zwischen Granitstreifen und Wacholderbüschen, die das raue Gelände Koreas darstellen, verstreut. Sieht schon beeindruckend aus vor Ort!✌🏼
.
So, Geschichtsstunde beendet...😂

Ich hoffe, ihr seid gut in die neue Woche gestartet? Ich bin natürlich wieder im Büro im Einsatz! Habt einen schönen Abend und bleibt gesund!🍀💕🙋🏻‍♀️

🇺🇸And here is another picture of a monument in Washinghton.😉 Here you can see a section of the korean war memorial. In an triangle are 19 oversized stainless steel statues by Frank Gaylord.  The figures represent a squad on patrol, representing every branch of the United States Armed Forces: 15 U.S. Army soldiers, 2 Marine Corps Marines, a Navy Corpsman, and an Air Force forward air controller.  They wear full combat equipment and are strewn between granite strips and juniper bushes, which represent the rough terrain of Korea. It looks very impressive there!✌🏼

So, the history lesson ended...😂

I hope your week starts good? I'm back in the office, as always!😉 Have a nice evening and stay healthy!🍀💕🙋🏻‍♀️

The Korean War Memorial and Museum in Seoul, South Korea, is full of memorabilia and first-hand experiences of the Korean War, a hellish collision between North Korea and South Korea that started in 1950 and lasted for around 3 years. Through both fascinating and heartbreaking exhibitions, it tells the story of elite North Korean units that advanced into South Korea following post WW2 conflicts and other major events throughout the war, including an assassination attempt on the South Korean president.

The pictured exhibition, named “The Drop”, consists of over 1,000 actual dog tags from fallen South Korean and UN soldiers. It hangs, on its own, in the centre of an otherwise empty room, spotlit to create a shadow as powerful as the sculpture itself. A full-room experience is felt, as raindrop and wartime sounds play lightly overhead. I’m not usually one to appreciate art, but when the purpose is obvious and tangible, it manages to hit home.

  • Back in 2015 I decided to go and visit my @kstafstrom in DC. Turns out I’m a dummy cause I messed up my flight home and took the red eye a day early; leaving me with 30hrs to explore. We started at the Lincoln Memorial and moved up the National Mall throughout the morning. 
One of my favorite stops was the Korean War Memorial where I snagged this pic. One of my top 3 favorite pictures I have ever taken. To me it makes you feel as if you are walking with the soldiers as the sun comes up. #thankyou to all the soldiers who have served and who are serving now 🇺🇸

뉴욕 배터리공원의 한국전쟁 기념비.
타지에서 피흘려 싸워주신
희생자분들을 추모하며 감사드립니다.
덕분에 지금의 한국이 존재합니다.

뉴욕시 공원에 울타리가 쳐진 곳에는 
청설모가 항상 있다.
울타리에서 나오지않고
사람도 무서워하지 않는
귀여운 뉴욕 주민ㅎㅎㅎ

  • When reflected on the wall, there appear to be 38 soldiers, 38 months, and it is also representing the 38 parallel that separated the North and South Korea.
On sunny days your reflection on the wall appears as part of the mural too.
