Ned Forney is a writer living in Seoul, South Korea. He is currently working on a non-fiction book about North Korean refugees rescued from Hungnam, North Korea, during a little-known 1950 US/UN humanitarian operation.
With the support of the Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs (MPVA) and the Hungnam Evacuation Memorial Committee, Ned has interviewed 30 former Hungnam refugees and in his book will weave their tragic stories into the larger untold saga of the Hungnam Evacuation - the largest US military amphibious evacuation of civilians, under combat conditions, in American history.
100,000 North Korean civilians were saved during the 15-day operation, and it is estimated that nearly a million descendants of those rescued now live in freedom in South Korea, the United States, and throughout the world.
Ned is a Marine veteran and the grandson of the late Edward H. Forney, USMC, who served as the evacuation control officer at Hungnam during the Korean War.
