The Deputy Consul General of the Republic of Korea visited the Georgia War Veterans Home Tuesday to thank the veterans for all they did for her nation.

In appreciation, she presented them with a book called 'Korea Reborn.'

For some of the veterans, it was an emotional moment.

Korean War Veterans remember experience


58,000 Korean War veterans call Georgia home.

Some of them live at the Georgia Veterans home in Milledgeville, and they will be recognized in a ceremony by a representative from the Republic of Korea tomorrow.

The Korean War might have ended more than six decades ago, but for those that fought in it, the memories are still very real and sometimes painful.

"People might mourn and they might cry," says veteran Prather Pitts. "But there was a job that had to be done, and I was willing to do my part. "

Pitts almost made the ultimate sacrifice after surviving a nearly fatal head injury from artillery fire.

"I was hit in the head. It bent the plastic, bent the helmet, and cracked my skull."

For Willie Bailey, the Korean War it was historic in another way.
