Indian Reservation – Crow Creek, SD – United States
American Indians have participated in every single war since the Revolutionary War. Almost 26,000 served in the Korean War. More than 5,000 died. 650 are still unaccounted for.
Even from one small tribe like the Crow Creek, many brothers and cousins volunteered to join the US Armed Forces. This was back in 1950, when American Indians weren’t even recognized as American citizens by the government.
