Representative Rangel has a piece in the Washington Times about Korea, his experiences in the war, and the emergence of Korea since then.
When I left the Korean Peninsula, wounded, it was a nightmare, and I thought I would never want to go back. So I could not be more proud to witness the rise of Korea from the ashes of war into becoming our nation’s seventh-largest trading partner and an international giant. Ms. Park’s historic ascendency to the presidency reflects the tremendous leaps that the Republic of Korea has made to become a shining example of one of the most successful democracies in the world.
Samsung made a significant contribution to the Korean Veterans War Memorial this week and we remain grateful to the Congressman for his service and sacrifice.
