We spoke to veterans who served in Korea.  They say what they're hearing on news makes them think we're headed towards another war in Korea.

North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un says he will test two missiles.  Military experts say the missles could not reach America, but they could hit troops and allies in the region.  So, the United States sent a missile defense system to Guam. 

As threats and now actions continue to ratchet up, two veterans share different views on the possibility of a second Korean War.

"I wouldn't like it very much, because they've had enough problems over there and everything," said Kenneth Reeves, served in Korea.

"Four years in Vietnam, and just the last part of the Korean War, if I was young enough I'd go again, but I'm 81," said Ray Portwood, an Army Veteran.

Portwood feels fully confident South Korea can defend itself.  He says he returned to Korea a second time to train their troops. 

He says they are some of the best troops in the world.
