Korean War Cease-fire - July 27, 1953

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Everyone here at VetFriends.com would like to reflect and express our deepest respect and gratitude to the Courage, Bravery and Patriotism of all of our Korean War Veterans, both living and deceased, along with all of our U.S. Veterans & Military. Your sacrifice & service has protected the American people, our freedoms & our great country. We thank & salute you.

 

The Korean War Cease-fire

On July 27, 1953 after 2 years of peace negotiations, a cease-fire of the Korean War was called at the 38th parallel, the major dividing line in Korea.

 

At this time a demilitarized zone (DMZ) was established around the 38th parallel. The DMZ runs north of the 38th parallel towards the east, and to the south as it travels west.

 

Stalemate leading to the Cease-fire (July 1951 - July 1953):

The later years of the war involved little territory change, large-scale bombing of the north and its population, and lengthy peace negotiations, which began on July 10, 1951, at Kaesong. Even during the peace negotiations, combat continued.

 

On November 29, 1952, U.S. President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower fulfilled a campaign promise by travelling to Korea to help end the conflict. With the U.N.'s acceptance of India's proposal for a Korean armistice, a cease-fire was established on July 27, 1953.

 

Results:

It is reported that approximately 480,000 U.S. troops fought in the Korean War, with 36,940 killed, 103,000 wounded, 8,142 MIA, and 3,746 POW. China lost 114,000 troops and North Korea 215,000.
