Remembering the 'Forgotten War'

Hornet Museum's Living Ship Day to focus on Korea

This Saturday, Aug. 27, the U.S.S. Hornet Museum will hold its Living Ship Day event. The event commemorates the Korean War and honors Korean War veterans.

The day's highlights will include: military displays from the Korean War-era, musical performances by the Honey Bee Trio, and re-enactors from the Santa Cruz Living History Group.

The event will also feature two key speakers: Daniel Vencill, Ph.D. and Richard Fred Kaufman, Ph.D.

Vencill lectures on World War II with a focus on the Pacific Theater at San Francisco State University. He has also been teaching on board the Hornet since 2009.

Kaufman is a recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross and three Korean Service medals. At the event, Vencill will talk about General MacArthur and what the U.S. has learned from the Korean War. Kaufman will talk about his experiences during the Korean War.
