Inha Cho, president of the Korean Veterans Association in 1992, recalls gathering veterans of the Korean Marine Corps to go into the areas of rioting in order to protect Korean Americans and their livelihoods. He explains that the U.S. reserve army and local law enforcement protected white communities only, which naturally exposed Koreatown to looting and riots. He credits God for saving his life, as well as his wife’s sincere prayers.
