Memorial for Jangjin battle heroes

American veterans who participated in a fierce battle between U.S. Marines, and North Korean and Chinese soldiers near Jangjin Lake in North Korea's South Hamkyong Province in the winter of 1950 during the Korean War and other participants pay silent tribute during a memorial service for some 4,500 U.S. soldiers that fell during the campaign at the plaza of the War Memorial Hall in western Seoul on Nov. 27, 2021. The campaign eventually enabled 100,000 civilians to evacuate from the North Korean port of Hungnam to South Korea. (Yonhap)
