The original release sheet reads: "KOREA TODAY" IS FILM DOCUMENTARY ON REBIRTH OF A NATION --A few short years ago, the rugged Peninsula of Korea was the scene of some of the hardest and most bitter fighting of modern times. "Korea Today," released for the Army's television series "THE BIG PICTURE" becomes a study of American soldiers helping a nation to help itself. As seen in this film, the savagery and violence created by the war have been wiped away with the generosity and love of the American soldier on duty in Korea. Housing, public buildings, businesses and transportation facilities have been patched together or constructed from scratch. American Army know-how, Army supervision, and Army equipment have played a vital role in this rehabilitation, working closely with the Korean people. Just as important has been the creation of a new Republic of Korea Army. This small force which was available for Korea's defense prior to the outbreak of the fighting, is now a part of history. Thousands of inexperienced young men have been trained by battle-seasoned American and Korean soldiers and turned into a smooth, well-drilled modern army, equipped with American weapons.
