ZUMBROTA – “Korea Reborn” is a book published, distributed, and paid for by the Republic of Korea to thank Korean War veterans and their families. Anyone who served in active duty from 1950 through January 1955, whether they served in Korea or not, and anyone who has served in Korea from January 1955 to the present is eligible to receive the book for free.
The book opens with a thank-you page to the United States of America for “60 years of commitment. 60 years of Friendship” and goes on to say, “The peace, prosperity, and liberties that we cherish today are built on your selfless sacrifices and contributions. Korea is forever indebted, and we will continue to build the trust and friendship between our nations.”
The book chronicles what led to the Korean War, what happened during the war, what happened after, and how they as a country have benefited from our continued support.
