The book is called, "The Korean War: Not Forgotten."
The work, containing the memories of 90 veterans of the Korean conflict, was unveiled Wednesday night at the Holiday Inn.

"It really makes history seem realistic to you because when you're reading it in a textbook, you're just like, 'Oh, this is what happened,' but when someone is standing there, and looking at you, and telling you their story, it really gives you a huge picture in your mind of what it looked like, and how they felt when they were there," says Jenna Hazaert, editor in-chief.
Wilbur Schuster is a war vet and did aerial reconnaissance work. He says the conflict helped end what was a great threat to the United States and the free world.
"It's actually our very first real struggle with communism as such. I think we more or less nipped it in the bud there, and from there on, it went to the good part."
This is the fifth history book DC Everest students have written.
