The Korean War involved many Marseilles residents during the 1950's.  Although some call this war "the forgotten war", those who served from Marseilles are remembered and honored.


On Veteran's Day in November 2018, several Marseilles WW-II veterans visited the Museum and told their stories.  Their stories are captured and archived in the videos below.   Hank Roe provided a great overview of this period, from 1950 to 1953. He mentions many veterans who served in this war.
