Nearly 150 men and women gathered today to celebrate the end of the Korean War at the American Post 159 in Bryan.

Today marks 60 years since the end of the war that claimed the lives of tens of thousands of US troops.

The war began in 1950 when political tensions on the newly divided Korean Peninsula came to a head. That's when North Korea invaded South Korea.

This is the third year the post has thrown a free breakfast for our nation's heroes.
