(An army of cripples, an army of mourners and an army of thieves)

When the Korean War finally came to an end, the agreed dividing line between North Korea and South Korea was the 38th Parallel - the dividing line which exists today. The armistice took effect on July 28, 1953. With negotiations for the Armistice taking place, CBS Radio did a documentary on how the Korean war affected the lives of people living along the 38th Parallel in the U.S.

Hosted by Will Rogers Jr. the one hour documentary goes from coast to coast, collecting thoughts, opinions and experiences of the average American on what the war meant to them.
