      The then-inconclusive Korean War, sometimes called the Forgotten War, had produced many bereaved and unsung heroes.

      However, there is no doubt today, after all these years, that their sacrifice has actually been a great victory for Korea and the West. It will not be forgotten.

              It was the Korea where Americans used jets and helicopters for the first time right?

                I think so, know they used them both in Korean war. they started with prop airplanes and went to jets when the enemy fielded Migs.

                  Helicopters were used by the 1st Air Commando USAAF in Burma

                        DALLAS — The remains of a Texas soldier killed during the Korean War have been identified and are scheduled to be buried next month in South Texas.
                        U.S. military officials announced Monday that the remains of 18-year-old Army Pfc. Herschel M. Riggs of Rio Grande City were identified in March.

                        Riggs was declared missing in action in July 1950 following combat action against North Korean forces. He was declared dead three years later.
