Korea Veterans by State

The Korean War was a conflict that was fought on the Korean Peninsula, in Asia, from 1950-1953. The conflict opposed South Korea (backed by the United Nations and the United States) to North Korea (supported by China and the Soviet Union). The war began in June 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea after clashes and rebellions along the border. A few days after the beginning of the war, the U.S., allies of South Korea, entered the conflict, sending military troops and aid to fight alongside them. The conflict ended with an armistice in July 1953. 

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, about 5.7 million Veterans served in the Korean War. Due to the severe cold weather and lack of preparedness, Korean War Veterans are more prone to cold-related injuries, disabilities, and diseases. They are therefore eligible for a wide variety of benefits that are tailored to their experience, specifically healthcare benefits.
