ABSTRACT

A new dimension of understanding for the Korean War is necessary to reassess and examine the Korean society of today. As an attempt to approach this issue, We have dealt with violence and everyday life of the disabled veterans. The most violent act of the disabled veterans was 'Chilgok accident'. The disabled veterans not received food rations. They feel anger and they occupied the police illegally. Joint ROK-UNCACK Committee; For the purpose of coordinating activities dealing with disabled veterans` problems. This Committee was formed in June 1952. The Committee was especially concerned with the problems involved in the initial transfer of patients from korea hospitals to the receiving installation under the supervision of civilian agencies. No mittings have been held since 8 Nor 1952. The government took steps in establishing a rehabilitation center at each province. Each rehabilitation center would contain 1,000 persons and 2,000 persons totaling 12,000 at 12 center. The provision categorized only a few of veterans with apparent physical injuries as annuity recipients. This unfair treatment towards the veterans did not function as a cure for injured bodies and souls but rather as a tool to persistently implement anticommunist sentiment.
