Visited my great-great-grandfather's tomb in Wonju, South Korea. I am so proud and honored to be the descendant of the Korean General - Min Geung-Ho.
He fought for Korean independence in the 1900s. The army of general Min was the largest in the country and had the strongest fighting spirit. They fought around 100 battles and most memorable fights were in Jeocheon, Jucksan, Janghowon, Yeoju, Hongcheon.
In 1962 he was posthumously awarded the Republic of Korea Presidential Medal of Order of Merit for National Foundation, the most prestigious civil decoration in the Republic of Korea, for his efforts for Korean independence. In October 1999 the city of Wonju erected the monument (photo attached) in honor of his patriotism.
"He was a man of integrity and fairness and held in great respect by his subordinates. Also he was a strong-willed commander with an excellent leadership skills and thus had many followers." Says on the monument of General Min Geung-Ho.
