We would like to wish all our veterans, their families, and friends the very best on this Veterans Day of 2012.

A special Remembrance is offered for those who paid the ultimate price during wartime.

Many of the Korean War Project donors, visitors or their spouses have passed on during the last 18 years of our existence.

Both of us will continue to reserve a special place in our hearts for all those people we have encountered.

1. Military Records on KWP-Update
==============================================

Our May and July 2011 newsletters last year featured notices
about our acquisition of US Marine Corps records, 2nd Infantry
Division records, and many of the 24th, 25th and 7th Infantry
Division Unit Diaries and Command Summary Reports.

The work to make these files computer and internet ready is a
time consuming process. Each page has to be scanned and
reviewed for quality.

Hal has converted over 100,000 pages of USMC records and
these are now online. During the process Hal discovered whole
sections of USMC records missing.

Snippet from newsletter:

Memorial Day May 28, 2012

We all pause today in order to pay respect to those among us who have served, or are still serving in the Armed Forces.

Many, if not most of us, reading this newsletter, have lost a friend or a loved one during the course of our lives in the wars the United States and Allied Countries have fought.

Many more of us know someone who has been severely injured or wounded during the same wars or conflicts.

Let us all pay our respects. Lest We Forget,

Hal and Ted Barker

News Update

January 21, 2012
Technical notes:

We have yet to get the kinks ironed out for mass delivery of email newsletters. The possibility of using one of the new internet tools, Word Press, may be one of the solutions. Security issues have yet to be solved with that delivery mechanism.

Most all of us who use the internet have discovered the many hiccups that can take place. Our corner of the 'Web' is no exception.

The entire website for the Korean War Project had to be reprogrammed during the past few months. We have experienced repeated crashes of the (KWP) web server from overload and issues in previous programming efforts.

Outages still take place and probably will continue so bear with us.

Bookstore:

Bookstore updates are in the works and will be featured here in the Newsletter section of our 60th Anniversary Online section of the Korean War Project.

Korean War Project Digital Initiative Picks Up Steam

Dallas, Texas. July 29, 2011. As part of the Korean War Project Digital Initiative, the Project recently received a donation of 13 boxes of Korean War records from the 2nd Infantry Division Alliance to add to tens of thousands of Marine Corps records and Army records obtained under FOIA

After an initial DOD Freedom of Information Act denial of over 100,000 digital records from the 7th, 24th, and 25 Divisions, the Project recently received 13 CD's full of records from the early months of the Korean War.

To date, this means the Korean War Project now has approximately 250,000 records obtained from National Archives files for conversion to public use on the Project website, www.koreanwar.org.

At this time, the Project has over 800 Marine Corps Command and Unit files online.

The Army division files are currently being prepared for public access in PDF format.

The Project also currently has the largest grouping of Korean War maps online, including over 500 topographic maps covering the 1950-53 period and then DMZ postwar era.

Korean War Project Newsletter July 27 2011 Volume 13, 2

Excerpt:

July 27th 1953 marks the enactment of the truce to end the three years of war in Korea. The truce had been a long time coming. The steps in the process resulted in stretching the war for such a long time. For those who were in the middle of the fierce fighting of 1953, it could not come quickly enough.

The toll of the last months of the war was steep in life and limb.

The same date also marks the beginning of a very unsettled truce that has reached across many decades. Violence and intrigue have been commonplace.
