President Truman's decision to send military and economic aid to the Republic of Korea in 1950 set the young republic on a six-decade-long path from one of the poorest countries in the world to one of the wealthiest. Today, South Korea is one of the world's largest economies, and the first UN aid recipient to become an aid giver. Truman's intervention in Korea, which the President considered to be his most difficult decision, led to great prosperity and one of America's greatest allies.
