the korean war ended this month

Surely, "the ceasefire began" rather than "the war ended"?

for some the "war ended" and for others the "cease fire" began..depends on your view i suppose
For the Koreans, the war is still very much on so I'd tend to go with that view. It's their war, after all.

Or you could just be historically accurate, and accept that the war is still (technically) on-going.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1845135334/?tag=armrumser-21 recently read this. Beforehand id never really given much thought to the war. I didn't really understand what those men went through. But now I really think their story should play a greater part in the country s' collective military conscience. Some hard hard men in that brigade. Total respect to all involved.
