  • Framing The Idea

    The idea for A Year Of Remembrance took form at the Yongsan War Memorial in Seoul.

  • Contemplating Suffering and Loss

    The Korean War Honour Roll Quilt, now housed at the UNMCK in Busan, provides an excellent representation of why remembering is important.

  • Searching For Strout

    What began as a search for the location of Squadron Leader Graham Strout became the genesis to this project. See more in the videos below which capture a broad perspective of the veteran experience that will help in our endeavour to make 2018 a Year Of Remembrance.

    The Truth About Veterans

    Too often, our efforts as a nation to care for our veterans has been well-intentioned but fallen short. As a nation, we failed to learn from the experiences of veterans returning from Korea which might have better served the experiences which contemporary veterans encountered. Its never too late to learn from the past so that we can improve the future.
