About this Article

Since Jin Lee, 51, of Des Plaines immigrated with his parents to the United States in 1975 from Seoul, South Korea, he has wanted to pay tribute to the American soldiers who kept his homeland free. Over the years, he has sponsored small exhibits on the Korean War, but the one he recently opened at the Skokie Heritage Museum is his grand achievement.
