THIS DAY IN HISTORY - June 30
Truman orders U.S. forces to Korea - 1950
Just three days after the United Nations Security Council voted to provide military assistance to South Korea, President Harry S. Truman orders U.S. armed forces to assist in defending that nation from invading North Korean armies. Truman’s dramatic step marked the official entry of the United States into the Korean War.
On June 25, 1950, military forces from communist North Korea invaded South Korea. South Korean forces and the small number of U.S. troops stationed in the nation reeled under the surprise attack. On June 27, the United States asked the Security Council in the United Nations to pass a resolution calling on member states of the United Nations to assist South Korea. With the Soviets boycotting the meeting for other reasons, the resolution passed. Three days later, President Truman ordered U.S. ground forces into South Korea and the troops entered South Korea that same day. At the same time, Truman ordered the U.S. Air Force to bomb military targets in North Korea and directed the U.S. Navy to blockade the North Korean coast.
Truman’s action signaled the beginning of official and large-scale U.S. participation in the Korean War. Over the next three years, the United States provided at least half of the U.N. ground forces in Korea and the vast majority of the air and sea forces used in the conflict against North Korea and, later, against communist China, which entered the war on the side of North Korea in late 1950. Nearly 55,000 Americans were killed in the war and over 100,000 were wounded. Cost estimates for the war ranged as high as $20 billion. In July 1953, an armistice was signed that ended the fighting and left Korea a divided nation.

Large sinkhole swallows car parked on St. Louis street
June 29 (UPI) -- A man found his car at the bottom of a sinkhole in a Missouri street after parking it to go to the gym on Thursday morning.
The sinkhole opened up to a depth of about 20 feet on a street in St. Louis at about 7 a.m., completely swallowing 25-year-old Jordan Westerberg's white Toyota Camry.
"It's pretty crazy," Westerberg, who was working out in the nearby YMCA with his fiancee when the sinkhole consumed his car, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "We could've been in the car. It's a compact car. It's not like it's heavy."
Greg Prater, a city street and traffic inspector, told KMOV an eight-inch water main beneath the street had been broken and significant erosion had taken place.
The city's water commissioner Curtis Skouby, added it was unclear if the water main had broken before the street collapsed and said the city was working to determine the cause of the sinkhole.
"As we expose more of the hole, excavate and clean it up, we will try to determine what happened. At this point it's a street collapse for whatever reason," Skouby said.
Towing crews used a rotator tow truck to lift the car back to the surface, and Westerberg said he remained optimistic whoever was at fault for the collapse would be able to reimburse him for the damages.
No one was hurt in the street collapse, but the basement of the nearby Railway Exchange Building was flooded with 2 to 3 feet of water due to the water main break.
Prater said it will take crews several weeks to repair the roadway.
