The Korean War was fought between North Korea and South Korea from 1950 to 1953. The war

began on 25 June 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea following clashes along the border

and rebellions in South Korea.

North Korea was supported by China and the Soviet Union while South Korea was supported by the

United States and allied countries. The fighting ended with an armistice on 27 July 1953.In 1910, Imperial

Japan annexed Korea, where it ruled for 35 years until its surrender at the end of World War II on 15

August 1945. The United States and the Soviet Union divided Korea along the 38th parallel into two

zones of occupation. The Soviets administered the northern zone, and the Americans administered

the southern zone. In 1948, because of Cold War tensions, the occupation zones became two sovereign

states. A communist state, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, was established in the north

under the totalitarian rule of Kim Il Sung, while a capitalist state, the Republic of Korea, was established

in the south under the autocratic leadership of Syngman Rhee. Both governments claimed to be the

sole legitimate government of all of Korea, and neither accepted the border as permanent. Since Puerto

Rico is a commonwealth of the United States, every Boricua had to be prepared to fight any war that

the United States was involved in. This is the story of my Grandfather Julio Pagan and my father Juan J.

Pagan. Together they went to Korea and fought for our country.
