The Link below provides an interesting look at the Timeline of events surrounding the period of the Korean War.
If you are looking to locate specific persons who were drafted or served in the Korean War, newspapers from the persons 'home area' may be of help. My hometown newspaper had a weekly article listing those who were registered, drafted, or enlisted, for military service from the previous week during the Korean War. Time period 1950-1954.
During this period the Selective Service System or 'Military Draft' was in effect and every male was required to register with the their local board of the Selective Service System when the reached the age of 18.
So local draft board records and/or newspapers could be possible sources for locating persons who served during the Korean War.
