Army puts collection of Korean War photos, videos online

PYEONGTAEK, South Korea (Stars and Stripes) - The U.S. Army is now offering on the Internet a rare and often stark look at Korean War combat captured through the lenses of military photographers and other cameramen.
The images — which also document the plight of Korea’s war-stricken refugees — provide a broad look at the 1950 to 1953 war that ravaged the peninsula and led to a U.S. military presence in South Korea that continues to this day.
Installation Management Command-Korea posted more than 40 video clips and about 150 still photos from Defense Department archives that show all the services in action.
The videos can be found on YouTube, and the photos are on Flickr. Continued
