The Philippine Expeditionary Forces To Korea (PEFTOK) was the Philippine contingent of the United Nations (UN) forces that fought in the Korean War (1950-1953). The PEFTOK is composed of almost 7,000 military operatives dispatched to Korea in the 1950's to provide aid in military operations as part of UN's resolution for the cessation of hostilities in the Korean Peninsula. The Philippine contingent took part in decisive battles such as the Battle of Yultong Bridge and the Battle of Hill Eerie. It operated with the United States 1st Cavalry Division, 3rd Infantry Division, 25th Infantry Division, and 45th Infantry Division.
