The Korean War: On the Monday, May 26 edition of The Iowa Journal

May 22, 2008

(Johnston, Iowa) – Monday’s episode of The Iowa Journal will explore American and U.N. involvement in Korea. The program airs Monday, May 26 at 6:30 p.m. It will be rebroadcast Friday, May 30 at 9 p.m. on statewide IPTV-Plus and will also be available online at Iptv.org.

Most Americans haven’t learned much about the Korean War, which was fought from 1950 through 1953, and caused millions of deaths, but the effects of this war still linger. The Iowa Journal will give a quick history lesson about the war, and then discuss its ramifications with Senator Jack Kibbie. Senator Kibbie served during the Korean War as a tank commander stationed at Heartbreak Ridge. As an Iowa senator, he is working to establish better methods for making sure service personnel obtain the benefits they're owed.
