Vietnam War Veteran Donates Five Million KRW to SNU
Vietnam War Veteran Donates Five Million KRW to SNU
August 8, 2014 Mr. PARK Yoon Seo (entering class of 1969, Department of Archaeology and Anthropology), a war veteran who lost both his legs during battle, donated five million KRW to SNU's 'Road of the Korean War' project. Mr. Park was only a sophomore when he served in the marine corps as Korea dispatched troops to the Vietnam War. As a handicapped person, he had trouble finding work after graduation, and went on to study social welfare in graduate school. In 1983, he went to NYU to study prosthetics and orthotics and became one of the first authorities in the field in Korea. Having worked at the Veteran's Hospital for countless years, he met many SNU alumni who were wounded during the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and felt disbelief that there was not a single monument on campus which remembered the dead or wounded students. He now feels that he has finally repaid the debt. more
