Dear Yujin,
I was forwarded your letter from a Korean Veteran i correspond with in the United States. Frank and i met in December 2008 when i travelled to America to visit a friend. I am the daughter of a Korean Vet who served under the United Nations as an Australian soldier. I was most interested in your letter as you spoke of visiting War Graves of our soldiers. My father was in the 1st Royal Australian Regiment as was his childhood friend who was killed in action just 1 month after arriving in Korea. He had just turned 19 years old. He is buried in the United Nations cemetery in Korea. My father has now passed away but grieved for his friend for a very long time. I am so very pleased you have acknowledged the efforts of the men and women who went to a foriegn land to aide those who needed help. The Korean Association here in Australia is very supportive,generous and most kind to our Veterans. My father was awarded the Ambassador to Peace Medal from the Korean Association not long before he passed away. It was a most welcome and beautiful acknowledgment of the service they gave far from home. Most of the Veterans who served in Korea were given little recognition from their own country and people for the role they played in helping to defend the South Korean people, however the South Korean people here in Australia...either living here or visiting have always honoured and given respect to these lovely quiet gentlemen. I refer to them as the Quiet Unsung Hero's as they are only now being given the acknowledgment they so deserve from their own country. Your letter is just lovely ! I hope you understand how very much it would mean to the men who served in Korea. I have attached some information from our Archives in the Australian War Memorial of both my father and his friend. Thank you for honouring and giving thanks to these wonderful men.

Kindest Regards,

Glenda Miller.
