Korea: 'The conflict never ended - they just stopped fighting'

For veterans, the Korean War is an open wound, where memories keep flooding back with every act of tension or violence in the divided eastern Asia peninsula. And recent war threats by nuclear wannabe North Korea are just the latest, and perhaps most serious, salvo in a standoff that has lasted since the Korean War ended with an armistice in July 1953. “I think something will happen, because they’ve had over a hundred incidents over the past 60 years,” said retired U.S. Army Col. Ben Malcom, who graduated from North Georgia College in Dahlonega in 1950.
