Iowans in the Korean War at Grout Museum

July 13, 2017
Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Waterloo- The Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum, 503 South Street, will be debuting a new exhibition, The Cold War Ablaze: Iowans in the Korean War, opening July 14, 2017 and running through July 14, 2018.

On June 25, 1950 the United States, along with United Nations allies, came to the defense of Democratic South Korea from the Invasion of Communist North Korea. Only five years after the end of WWII the world faced a crisis, a clash between the East and the West, a war between Democracy and Communism. The Cold War was waged primarily on propaganda, economic, and political fronts - yet in places like Korea, the Cold War took shape in the form of battle.

Learn about the "Forgotten War" directly from those who served and discover how the Korean War shaped the Cold War and our current foreign affairs. Rare photographs, documents, interviews, and objects will reveal what really happened in Korea and why.

Museum Admission is FREE for Korean War Veterans for the duration of this exhibition. Regular Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for all other Veterans & children 4-13, 3 and under and Museum Members are also free. For more information call 319-234-6357 or visit www.GroutMuseumDistrict.org.

Presenting exhibition sponsor is Black Hawk County Gaming Association. Admission is sponsored by Black Hawk County.
