Big Picture: The Guns Are Silent
Korea is still a front-line area, though the guns are silent. This truce-line documentary was filmed in the Korean Sector which is patrolled by soldiers day and night, through summer and winter. In this zone, the patrols of the Army act as eyes for all U.S. forces in Korea. The program serves as a timely reminder that what once happened in Korea must not happen again.
