Beyond The Bridge of No Return: Legacy of a Korean War Veteran


The Korean War Legacy Foundation is thrilled to announce the completion of its documentary on the legacy of the Korean War. The 40-minute documentary follows Arden Rowley, a Korean War veteran, and his great grandson, Cayden Sherwood, as they travel back to South Korea to remember his wartime experiences while discovering the unique history and miraculous progress the Korean people have achieved over the past 65 years. The film connects the past to the present on a historical and generational level.

According to Tom Stevens, President of the Korean War Veterans Association, the documentary is “the best video depicting the legacy I have ever seen. I had to hold the tears back many times while viewing it.”
