Today We Commemorate the 62nd Anniversary of the Korean War

The Colombian Army joins the Asian country to commemorate this date, where the participation of our heroes was crucial to accomplish victory.
The Battle of Monte Calvo, as it is known this battle, is considered the worst clash our heroes have fought in foreign lands.

It was courage and bravery of our Colombian soldiers who never forget the lives of ninety-seven compatriots with whom they fought shoulder to shoulder while defending freedom. The Colombian soldiers who fought against the Chinese, became war heroes in Korea.

Now they remember how they defeated the enemy through teamwork, leadership and perseverance that characterizes a hero of the nation.
