After a long 3 year battle, the Korean war came to an end on this day in July 1953. The countries involved in the war agreed to stop fighting and signed a Armistice. These countries are the United States, the People’s Republic of China, North Korea, and South Korea. According theFreeDictionary.com website and Armistice is "(Military) an agreement between opposing armies to suspend hostilities in order to discuss peace terms; truce" Millions of lives were lost on all sides. Today is a day of remembrance for those who have fought and died in this senseless war.

Although all war is brutal and horrific, by many accounts it was not considered a senseless war. The Soviets and Chinese were hellbent on spreading communism throughout the entire world, and we took a stand to put a stop to communist aggression. I do wish the two Koreas would figure out how to make peace with each other and reunite as one country, but I don't think that is going to happen anytime soon. By the way, my grandfather flew F-86 Sabre fighter jets for the Air Force in Korea, the first in a long line of fighter pilots in my family!
