June 25, 1950

The Korean War begins. This is one of the few areas of recent American history that I haven’t studied all that extensively. In fact, most of my knowledge comes from the TV show, M*A*S*H, which paints an extremely unflattering image of the U.S. Army, so I rarely watch it anymore. I really should work on learning more about this. My sense is that it’s impact on American history has been understated.
