The outbreak of the Korean Conflict saw the return  to war service of dozens of Aboriginal veterans of  the Second World War, as part of the newly raised  Canadian Army Special Force. Pictured here at Camp  Borden circa 1953, Sgt Thomas Prince had earned the  Military Medal and United States Silver Star while  serving with the joint Canadian-American Special  Service Force during the Second World War. He  served again with the Princess Patricia’s Canadian  Light Infantry regiment in Korea.

This tribute to the Korean War Veterans opens with photos of the Korean War Monument  on the Mall in Washington, D.C.  These men, like those before them, fought with great valor and pride.  Theirs is mostly a forgotten war, a war that was not ended decisively.  They came home to an America in the throws of prosperity.  They simply came back and went to work building the nation.  We must not forget their courage, their sacrifices, or their contributions to history.
