Veterans from 16 nations
U.S. service members assigned to Key Resolve 2017 take a moment to look over a wall of black and white photos highlighting the sacrifice veterans from 16 United Nations sending states made for a people they barely knew at the War Memorial of Korea in Seoul, Republic of Korea, March 18, 2017. A plaque at the center of the photos entitled, “War and Friendship,” reads, “When you face the uncertainty of life and death, the only people you could trust were their fellow soldiers in the battlefield.” The memorial depicts the immense bond U.N. and ROK soldiers felt during the war. A soldier’s battle buddy, regardless of nationality, became like family. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Benjamin W. Stratton)
