Hororing Pfc. Kenneth Shadrick
July 5, 1950
First U.S. fatality in the Korean War
Near Sojong, South Korea, Private Kenneth Shadrick, a 19-year-old infantryman from Harlan, Kentucky, becomes the first American reported killed in the Korean War. Shadrick, a member of a bazooka squad, had just fired the weapon at a Soviet-made tank when he looked up to check his aim and was cut down by enemy machine-gun fire.

• MISSION STATEMENT •
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.
