Lots of coverage of the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War Armistice.

Stars and Stripes shares memories from veterans: “For Norman Hale, the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War marks 60 years of freedom.”

“For most of Hale’s three-year stint in the Army, he was a prisoner of war, spending 32 months and 11 days in a prison camp near Pyoktong, North Korea, near the Chinese border.”

“’It was like hell here on Earth,’ said Hale, the chaplain for the Korean War Ex-POW Association.”

Military Times runs “photos from then and now.”
