The temperature this morning is 12 degrees Fahrenheit. It is 11.11 degrees Celsius, and it is cold, and everything is frozen.
On November 27, 1950, a cold wave from Siberia surrounded the Chosin Reservoir. The temperature was minus 38 degrees Fahrenheit, minus 36 degrees Celsius. It is difficult to describe in words the sacrifices of the Soldiers who were attacked by 120,000 fresh Communist Chinese troops and fought until December 13th.
Frozen land, icy roads, frost bites, and even frozen guns and ammunition. To commemorate and express our gratitude to the American soldiers, the Defenders of Freedom, who died in the Battle of the Chosin Reservoir, the 6.25 Foundation visited their respective hometowns in 2021 after Corporal Bolognai last year and delivered the donations from the many participating people to commemorate their sacrifice.
The Foundation had the honor of naming the libraries in their names. We still have a very long way to go. One State after another, one village after another, one library after another, we will seek out and honor all 36,516 who sacrificed everything to protect the freedom of South Korea. “Even swallows do not forget grace.” Do join us in this effort. Do participate in the foundation’s projects. Visit the veterans. Lest we forget! November 24, 2021

Are we facing another war?
What are we willing to give up in order to avoid it?
How many concessions are too many?
Is history repeating itself?

Our collective memory of the Korean War and why it was important is fading. Yet parallels exist between the forces that gave rise to the conflict and the events of today, making knowledge of the War more relevant than ever.

625 Foundation to promote renewed study of the Korean War, and to ensure that the hard-fought lessons learned by its generation are not lost on future ones. We will begin with the people and communities directly impacted by the conflict: We will hear from the men and women who experienced the War about why they fought, and what they lived through. We will document visits to towns and cities that have erected memorials to the War, in America, South Korea, and other countries that had a stake in its outcome. We will use existing reference material to give context to our fieldwork.

With the resources gathered by the Foundation, we believe the general public will be better informed and positioned to consider the future of the Korean peninsula.
