  • Korean War (1950-1954) ended at the same border (38th parallel) that it started. It's also named as 3WW because 21 countries were involved in the war, namely China, USA, Russia and UN. Turkey was also one of the countries that sent soldier to UN military. After the Senate address of John F. Dulles valued Turkish soldiers at 23 cents a month compared with the lowest echelon U.S. soldiers at $70, Nazım Hikmet Ran wrote a poem called "23 Sentlik Askere Dair" (On the soldier worth 23 cents).
