Sandwiched between WWII and the Vietnam Warm, the Korean War is often referred to as “The Forgotten War.” But the Behringer-Crawford Museum is putting a local touch on the war’s history with its upcoming exhibit, Korea: The Forgotten War.
Featuring photos, recorded interviews, and documents from local veterans, the exhibit will share personal war stories from a little-known period in American history. Also included in the exhibit is a miniature statue of Thomas Dehne, a Marine from Newport who was a model for one of the 19 full-size statues in the Korean War Veterans Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
The exhibit will remain on display through October 1. A public reception will be held from 1 – 3 p.m. on Aug. 5, during which time all veterans and their spouses will be admitted free, while veterans’ families will be half-price.
