We need your help to keep the KWE online. Jim Doppelhammer, our longtime webhost, has passed away and his webserver will go offline in 2025. The entire KWE website must be migrated to a modern server platform before then. If you value this resource and want to honor our veterans by keeping their stories online after 2024, please donate now. For more information, click here.

Health Issues as They Relate to the Korean War

Korean War veterans were exposed to a wide assortment of health risks while serving in the military during the Korean War.  Among them were cancer-causing atomic radiation exposure, the use of DDT, hemorrhagic fever, and asbestos exposure.  There are countless cases of cold weather injuries that still affect Korean War veterans today.  To learn more about these issues, view the text below for reference resources.  Please contact Lynnita if you have more information on these and other health-related issues.
