  1. My Uncle Leonard Wieers who currently lives in Fargo, North Dakota, USA served in the US Navy during the Korean War as well as my deceased Uncle Theodore Wieers.

  2. Great work.
    My last uncle just passed several weeks ago. He was a Japanese American WWII veteran who served in Europe.
    Younger generations are not being taught the enormous sacrifices the previous generation did for us.

  3. Let the stories of bloody struggles for freedom be a reminder for future generations that freedom is expensive and must never be taken for granted. PH-KR

  4. Whoaaaaaaaa this is so smart…………… getting to hear the stories of people who where soliders back then…. but between 17-20 to be recruited sooo young?! I didn’t know what I was doing back then…. gosh……..

  5. I cried while watching this. My grandfathers were both Korean War Veterans. My last grandfather passed away this past may. He thought no one cared because he was part of the forgotten war and never talked about it. I finally got a story about 5 years ago at my college graduation dinner. I wish I could have taken him with me to South Korea 2 years ago when I visited. He would have loved to have seen the country. Our family has many pictures he took but will never get to hear the stories because he passed. So thank so much for doing this, showing these veterans how much they actually meant and recording their stories.

  6. He’s a hero saving these veterans from being forgotten❤️
    Need to show my grandpa this. Maybe he can get himself photographed too one day

  7. I met a Korean veteran in my home town in Canada. The only people who even cared were half a world away. In Korea. It makes me sad that the Canadian government doesn’t care. I do. Thank you.

  8. The soldiers already paid enough. This young man knows this. This makes me so proud of our old US soldiers. What a fine man to do this for them. If you ever come to Los Angeles there is a Koren War memorial near my home, you’re more then welcome to stay in our guest room to save money. We also have a huge amount of Veteran lodges in the area. Best of luck.

  9. I have a really hard time accepting any sort of military force for personal reasons but this surely made me look things from a different perspective. Tks Rami & Asian Boss, I’ll stay curious!

  10. You are the best Asian Boss! It is especially heartwarming to see someone sacrifice his time and money to show some love for people who fought in a war for them. Truly a sweet act, I hope he can continue doing this and make so many others feel proud too.

  11. Wooow! What you are doing is great for the veterans. They deserve so much more for what they sacrificed. This makes me miss my grandpa even more because he was in Korea. Thanks for what you do

  12. Great story, Asian Boss! You might want to put the Go Fund me link in a pinned comment, instead of only in the description (it’s easy for people to miss the descriptions). Feel free to add a link to support you guys too in the same comment.

  13. Omgggg every American/Korean/Korean-American should watch this!!!! WhAt an amazing guy honoring the people that fought for his country ….. beautiful !!!! What stories he must have heard!!!

  14. I appreciate the thought but it’s really a dishonor to some countries to have their efforts go unappreciated. This video just shows how strong Koreans look up to Caucasian while taking other races for granted and doesn’t acknowledge their effort just because they’re below in the hierarchy.

  15. Really enjoyed this video. I’m fortunate to live in DC where I can walk through the Korean War Memorial every weekend to pay homage. The memorial is most poignant during snowfall, when the statues of soldiers are laden with snow on their helmets & packs. The National Park Service is in the process of adding a new Wall of Remembrance that will list more than 40,000 Americans and KATUSA who died during the Korean War

  16. This was truly touching! As a 30 year Marine Corps Veteran and the daughter of a WWII Army Veteran I SALUTE YOU! Thank you for this and to you Asian Boss, BIG HUGS! Please continue your great work! “FREEDOM ISN’T FREE!”

  17. My dad was a Korean War Veteran but he just passed away at 89. 💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔. Very under recognized group! Thank you for this great project. We should’ve met earlier

  18. I would totally recommend to him to visit the Philippines soon considering we have a good number of Korean war veterans some who live in the provinces and are farmers or live just very simple lives at this point. We also have a former president who is very much still alive who is from that generation and even from WW2 and he should totally meet him before the said former president dies.

  19. My grandpa served in the Korean conflict. He died in 2013. He treasured his time in Korea and shared interesting stories from that time. I recognize any military service might be problematic but I’m confident his service, at least, was non violent and humanitarian.

  20. My grandpa served as a crane operator right after the war finished, helping to do some stuff there. He tells me that the Koreans would put their kimchi on his crane engine to warm it up. He always hated the smell though. Haha sadly some of the only Korean he remembers is 담배 주세요.

  21. Why not making documentaries about the land and people that USA raped and destroyed?
    Was it heroic to napalm a whole country and commit mass slaughter?
    SHAME on USA for that war too!

  22. This is such a heartfelt mission! I hope he has great success in being able to meet with as many Korean veterans as possible. 🙏🏼 My grandpa is also a Korean War veteran.

  23. What a fine project! My father served in the Korean war. He was shipped off to a place he knew little about, but served his time. He did not speak about the war very much, but I knew he was proud to help keep a people free. The ROK repaid the U.S. for the help they recieved by being tough, strong allies to the U.S. during the war in Vietnam. I miss my dad. I would have liked to have known more about his service in Korea.

  24. The price of gold was fixed at $35 an ounce in 1934, but by the time the U.S. got through the Korean War, the Vietnam war, with all the associated secular inflation, the price level had gone up nearly three times. So, there’s more to the Korean War et al than meets the eye.

  25. You are a fine man for all the painstaking efforts plus your money just so you are able to show your care and concern for the foreign soldier heroes who fought your war. Say, have you any knowledge also of the Filipino war heroes who fought for our Korean brothers .

  26. What a remarkable young man!! I know that I’m going to sound like a typical old man when I say this, but too many young people today don’t know about these sorts of things and they’re certainly not taught about them in school anymore. I’m a Vietnam War veteran, and I can honestly say that our biggest fear is to not be remembered for what we did. Way to many people forget that “Freedom isn’t Free!” Thanks for telling this story Asian Boss!

  27. I thought many (maybe most) Koreans don’t appreciate Americans liberating them from communism. Blaming the USA and white people for everything is now the trend. I’m pleasantly surprised.

  28. This is amazing. Thank you Asian Boss. Your channel has helped me think about things in a way I never appreciated before. Best to you, keep it up, and I can’t wait to see what else you have to share.

  29. I’m from Colombia and I know the president of that time sent soldiers to the Korean war. I don’t even know if some of them are alive tho…

  30. This guy gets it. I mean IT. No greater Love is there than one person lays down his life for his friends, or his fellow human sisters and brothers

  31. I always wonder why foreigners always say “Korean war is forgotten war”. At least it’s not a forgotten war here in Korea. Korean government have invited Korean war veterans to Seoul every year. And they even send masks to Korean war veterans last year because of this pandemic.

  32. “To become a great country, you have your freedom, you have your liberty, you have your ups and downs like we have, but it’s up to you people to make sure that your country always stays free and always fights for liberty.”

    Frank J. Petraglia (US Army Korean War Veteran (1953-54))

  33. I salute you bro. and all the soldiers fought for the freedom of South Koreans. May they forever be reminded that once in their history Americans fought for their freedom. Love this kind of heartwarming videos. and now I’m crying.😭😭💔❤

  34. Thank you for this video. My grandfather has already passed on, but he served in the Korean War. He lost one of his brothers there, and then lost another brother a few years later in Vietnam. He never wanted to talk to us about the war.
