    62 years ago, North and South Korea began a war that's technically, still going on.

    Korean soldiers commemorated the start of the Korean war on Monday with an amphibious landing operation. 3400 troops took part in the drill.
    In Seoul, a memorial service was held for veterans.

    One veteran had mixed feelings about the event.

    [Thomas Bezouska, War Veteran From the United States]:
    "But I still feel bad that North and South Korea are separated. I would not want to be separated with my family. So that's what I feel about. It's a great day to be here but it's happy but somewhat sad."

    Three million soldiers and civilians were killed during the three year war. Five million became refugees.

    Although the war ended with a truce in 1953, there was no peace treaty drawn up.
