Remembering the "forgotten" war

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- It's called "the forgotten war." But, Sioux City historians want to make sure you remember the Korean War.

60-years ago, next month, the war started and it lasted for three years.

Right now, the Sioux City Public Museum is displaying military equipment from that war.

Uniforms, weapons and artillery shells are just a few of the display items.

The exhibit will run through September.

Museum organizers say they chose the Korean war because of how it relates to the current conflicts in the Middle East.

"We tend to think that we are experiencing something that has never happen to anybody before, but in reality there is very little that is brand new, and I think we can always learn lessons from the past," Matt Anderson, Sioux City Public Museum.

The museum will also feature discussion panels with local Korean Veterans starting June 15th.\
