We thought picture postcards of the artwork would be appropriate gifts for the war veterans, so they can enjoy the art through the postcards without having to actually visit the exhibition. 80,000 postcards containing 40 images were made and then sent out to every veteran. Each one of the veterans received a set of 20 selected postcards. Although we received help from the British Korean Veterans Association, the task was not easy; it took almost 10 days writing down their names, sealing the letters, and sending them out. Paul Wadey, a British official at the center, readily took charge of this task with the help of a short-term intern.
The Korean War is now hardly remembered by many people around the world, and only by Koreans. The Republic of Korea has achieved historically significant progress and now is a country to be respected. We all are proud that we helped to lay the foundations for the country’s development.
