The Truth About the Recent Wars By Daniel P. Bolger, 10 Nov 2014 AS a senior commander in Iraq and Afghanistan, I lost 80 soldiers. Despite their sacrifices, and those of thousands more, all we have to show for it are two failed wars. This fact eats at me every day, and Veterans Day is tougher than most. As veterans, we tell ourselves it was all worth it. The grim butchery of war hovers out of sight and out of mind, an unwelcome guest at the dignified ceremonies. Instead, we talk of devotion to duty and noble sacrifice. We salute the soldiers at Omaha Beach, the sailors at Leyte Gulf, the airmen in the skies over Berlin and the Marines at the Chosin Reservoir, and we're not wrong to do so. The military thrives on tales of valor. In our volunteer armed forces, such stirring examples keep bringing young men and women through the recruiters' door. As we used to say in the First Cavalry Division, they want to "live the legend." In the military, we love our legends. Here's a legend that's going around these da ...

Today at 1720hrs the remains of Corporal Cletus Lies will return to ND. Please to a moment to remember this soldier. July 3, 2014 Soldier Missing From Korean War Accounted For The Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) announced today that the remains of a U.S. serviceman, missing from the Korean War, have been identified and will be returned to his family for burial with full military honors. Army Cpl. Cletus R. Lies, 26, of Bremen, N.D., will be buried July 3, in New Rockford, N.D. In late 1950, Lies was assigned to the Medical Company, 32nd Infantry Regiment, 31st Regimental Combat Team (RCT), east of the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. On Nov. 29, 1950, the 31st RCT, known historically as Task Force Faith, began a fighting withdrawal to a more defensible position. Following the battle, Lies was declared killed in action. Between 1991 and 1994, North Korea turned over to the U.S. 208 boxes of human remains believed to contain 350 - 400 U.S. servicemen who fought during the war. Nort ...

The retired Marine Master Gunnery Sergeant begins: ?I graduated from High School, the next morning I was on the train for Parris Island, South Carolina. Following Boot Camp I found myself in a Regiment assigned to the Iwo Jima assault. With my fellow Marines we fought our way to the top of Mount Suribachi. ?In Korea I was with ?Chesty? Puller at Inchon, then we fought our way toward the Yalu River. In the cold Korean winter we fought at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, ?I ended my career after Viet Nam where I spent 3 months in the Battle of Khe Sanh after stomping through endless rice paddies.?

Famous Marine Quotes "A ship without MARINES is like a garment without buttons." ADM. DAVID PORTER, USN "The more Marines I have around, the better I like it." General Clark, U.S. Army "No one can say that the Marines have failed to do their work in handsome fashion." Major General Hagood, U.S. Army "There is no military body in our country of higher efficiency than the Marine Corps. They take great pride in their profession. They never let things slack a bit." Rear Admiral C.M. Wilslow, U.S. Navy "They're on our right, they're on our left, they're in front of us, they're behind us; they can't get away from us this time." Chesty Puller, USMC, Chosin Reservoir, Korean War Old breed? New breed? There's not a *** bit of difference so long as it's the Marine breed. Chesty Puller, USMC "Marine Corps integrity is doing that thing which is right, when no one is looking" Col. Colin Lampard, USMC Every Marine is, first and foremost, a rifleman. All other conditions are secondary General A. M. Gray, USMC
The first Bixby in my wife's home province was my grandfather as a member of the Army Air Force when he was helping repel the Japanese. At the same time my other grandfather was on lovely piece of *** called Iwo Jima when he was only 16 or 17 years old. About 7 or so years later, that same grandfather found himself on the frozen tundra of the Chosin Reservoir being dragged off the field, with Chinese shrapnel in him, by a person whose fait I will never know . 15 years after that, my uncle would find himself in Saigon and my father was sent to the Gulf of Tonkin. They all came home. I can't help but wonder how many people not coming home made this possible. When I take it a step further, I realize something even greater. Today and for all eternity, we will hear how our soldiers, marines, sailors, and airmen keep us free. But there is a bigger story here. Prior to WW2 we were happy to play the game of colonialism and spheres of influence. Many scares are still visible in China and other countries around th ...
Q. What is the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day? A. Many people confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Memorial Day is a day for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. While those who died are also remembered, Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor ALLthose who served honorably in the military - in wartime or peacetime. In fact, Veterans Day is largely intended to thank LIVING veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served - not only those who died - have sacrificed and done their duty. Over 1.3 million American men and women have lost their lives in the many conflicts fought by this country . So while you’re enjoying this long weekend, think about Bunker Hill, Gettysburg, Normandy, Chosin Reservoir, Khe Sanh, Kandahar and other p ...

Now, I am living a contemplative life, the kind that both Plato and Aristotle believed was the best kind of life to live. I have never been happier in my life and this is mostly due to my wife, Yulia, whose love and companionship has made me love life more than I thought possible. But the whole realm of possibilities that I have had; the freedom of choice, the freedom to do or not do what I pleased, to live where I wanted to, and travel where I wanted, was all made possible by men and women who sacrificed their lives to make my kind of life possible. Each and every one made it possible---at Valley Forge, at Fort McHenry, at Gettysburg, Manila Bay, at Belleau Woods, in Normandy, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, the Chosin Reservoir, Khe-Sanh, Kuwait, Bagdad, Kandahar, and countless other places. When I lived up in D.C., I used to drive past Arlington Memorial Cemetery almost everyday. Someti ...
What was it like to live through Belleau Wood, Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, the Pusan Perimeter, Chosin Reservoir, Hue City, Khe Sanh, Anbar Prov?
This is copied from the Sheperd's Chapel site. This man has had an awesome influence on my understanding of the KJV Bible. Fair winds and following sees Marine. "I also should point out to those not familiar with the Shepherd's Chapel that we are completely independent; therefore we are not affiliated with any other church, denomination or group. As a matter of record, the only group of which I am a member is with the "Chosin Few" which is a group of Korean War veterans comprised of various military factions who fought in one of the more famous battles of that war. I am very proud to have served as a U.S. Marine in this severe winter battle in which approximately 12,000 of our troops faced a massive surprise attack by an estimated 120,000 of the Chinese communist enemy. Although suffering many casualties, the Marines and our British allies inflicted far more damage to the Chinese and were able to ultimately escape (with our dead and injured) from the Chosin Reservoir where we were at a grave disadvantage. ...
Once again our Nation and our World have been thrown into a boiling caldron because of the actions of despicable men who thirst after power and covet what is not theirs. I want you to look at this Flag. The men and women who have fought for and under it have withstood far more that the bellicose ranting and actions of one Vladimir Putin. He may know Russian history but he is quite ignorant of our’s. While he and his thugs seek to restore some lost Russian Empire through intimidation and the theft of his neighbor’s lands, let him ponder the following: From Yorktown to Chalmette, from Little Round Top to Belleau Wood, from Iwo Jima to the Chosin Reservoir and from Khe Sanh to Grenada, Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan: wherever this banner has flown, in the end, the rights of the individual over a monolithic state have been protected and real liberty, as far as it can be defined, has been made present. Take heart America. Let us all place our trust in Almighty God and in our heritage as a free and exceptiona ...
RIP 1st Asian-American Marine officer who led 500 Marines out of Chosin Reservoir ambush during Korean War.
ATTENTION: THIS IS A LONG READ AND WORTH EVERY MINUTE OF IT. I would like to tell all my family and friends about a real hero. 63 years ago my wife's Uncle Timothy was killed in action in Korea. More precisely, he was 1LT Timothy Tai Sun Eum, U.S. Army Field Artillery, assigned to A Battery, 674th Airborne Field Artillery Battalion, 187th Regimental Combat Team (Airborne). He died 19 February 1951 while assaulting Hill 738 with G Company, 3d Battalion, 187th RCT (ABN) near Sillim-ni in the very last action of the Battle of Wonju. Unfortunately his military records were lost in a fire in 1973 and it has taken me months of research to find out this information. We knew he was awarded a Silver Star, but didn't know why. In fact, I am still trying to figure out all his awards. Today, on the anniversary of his death, I finally got a copy of his Silver Star award from the National Archives in Washington, DC. It is below and speaks for itself. To help with some perspective: on 1 DEC 1950, the entire 8th US Army ...

Colonel Don Conroy's Eulogy written by his son, Pat Conroy The children of fighter pilots tell different stories than other kids do. None of our fathers can write a will or sell a life insurance policy or fill out a prescription or administer a flu shot or explain what a poet meant. We tell of fathers who land on aircraft carriers at pitch-black night with the wind howling out of the China Sea. Our fathers wiped out aircraft batteries in the Philippines and set Japanese soldiers on fire when they made the mistake of trying to overwhelm our troops on the ground. Your Dads ran the barber shops and worked at the post office and delivered the packages on time and sold the cars, while our Dads were blowing up fuel depots near Seoul, were providing extraordinarily courageous close air support to the beleaguered Marines at the Chosin Reservoir, and who once turned the Naktong River red with blood of a retreating North Korean battalion. We tell of men who made widows of the wives of our nations' enemies and who m ...
North Korea 1950 & NOW UN soldiers fought and were forced to retreat Behind sandbags protected by barbwire hoops. Many GI's died as they held off attacks By 810,000 Communist troops. Our guys used phosphorus, flame-throwers and napalm For without these weapons they could not survive. The Communist charges led by buglers Till the UN could start it's offensive drive. On the battlefield of death Chosin Reservoir Many froze with their hands still stuck to their guns. While others hobbled with their boots wrapped in rags City boys, farmers, students, fathers and sons. With a million and a half dead or wounded Both sides singed a truce before generals involved. July 27th, 1953 And though thousands were orphaned, nothing was solved. AMERICAN SOLDIER It’s not a priest that gives us our freedom of religion And it’s not a reporter that gives us our freedom of voice. It’s not any judge, lawyer, politician, or teacher But the blood of a soldier that has sacrificed by choice. Our soldiers line up to be remembere ...
Not really. More fascinating. Also he excavated up at Chosin Reservoir
Ensign Jesse LeRoy Brown, USN, (1926-1950) Jesse LeRoy Brown was born in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, on 13 October 1926. He enlisted in the Naval Reserve in 1946 and was appointed a Midshipman, USN, the following year. Brown became the first African-American to be trained by the Navy as an aviator. After attending pre-flight school and flight training, he was designated a Naval Aviator in October 1948. Midshipman Brown was then assigned to Fighter Squadron 32. He received his commission as Ensign in April 1949. During the Korean War, Brown also became the first African-American Naval Aviator to see combat when his squadron operated from USS Leyte (CV-32), flying F4U-4 Corsair fighters in support of United Nations forces. On 4 December 1950, while on a close air support mission near the Chosin Reservoir, Ensign Brown's plane was hit by enemy fire and crashed. Despite heroic efforts by other aviators, he could not be rescued and died in his aircraft. Ensign Jesse L. Brown was awarded the Distinguished Flying ...
I was thinking back on when a very few friends and I used to play 'army' on the Duxbury Elementary School playground and how everybody thought we were such losers. I loved it and still love those friends! A moment of epiphany came in the USMC twenty years later at The Basic School when I realized during training that I was doing the very same thing. Still think the greatest US Marine of all time was OP Smith, the quietly brilliant and down-to-earth General who enabled the amazing Chosin Reservoir breakout to happen, despite Gen MacArthur's intention to march his men straight into a Chinese ambush of massive proportions. Semper Fi!!!
It was so cold and miserable. All the men in the truck were suffering from battle wounds as well as frostbite. They huddled close together in vain attempts to keep warm. Weaponless and suffering, the wounded soldiers were being transported via convoy to field hospitals for treatment. But a million Chinese soldiers had surrounded the U.S. 1st Marines and elements of the U.S. 25th infantry division at the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. The convoy had been ambushed and their armed escort quickly overwhelmed. Now the helpless soldiers in the trucks were captured and at the mercy of the surging Chinese army. The Chinese, bent on the destruction of all United Nations forces in Korea, began to set the trucks on fire with the wounded men still inside. Chinese soldiers, posted at the rear of the trucks, shot any soldier who tried to escape the burning vehicles. Scenes such as this were played over and over during the Korean War. What is my point? Why in the name of Sam Hill do we do business with Chin ...

One of my best friends died last year. He fought at the Chosin Reservoir in the early '50s. Bizarre that US is still there.
some things in life are bigger than you and worth freezing for from Valley Forge to the Chosin Reservoir to the Battle of the Bulge... to guarding the Tomb of the Unknown if only to God.
It contains the nice presented picture gallery of Battle of Chosin Reservoir, chosen from variety of reuse friendly images. Usable and nice looking gallery.
Good morning. It’s Thursday, February 13, 2014. The nation’s capital, along with much of the Eastern Seaboard, is blanketed in snow. If one doesn’t have to worry about traffic and can make it into the historic part of the city, Washington is lovely under these conditions. One monument, in particular, is meant to be seen in these conditions—the Korean War Veterans Memorial, which depicts the Frozen Chosin, a play on words relating to the soldiers and U.S. Marines who fought at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir. “Freedom Is Not Free,” reads the inscription in marble. The pond at nearby John J. Pershing Park is frozen over too today, although the statue of the great American general, holding his hat in one hand and binoculars in the other, is visible in any kind of weather. In 1917, “Black Jack” Pershing led the first of some 200 American soldiers ashore at Boulogne to calls of “Vive l’Amerique!” from grateful French people who’d been exhausted and battered by World War I. It was an off ...
God Bless Arnold Murray & The Shepherd's Chapel . Now he's returned to the true Father in Heaven. There's probably a great welcome home party taking place. 1 Corinthians 15:55. He said this sometimes : " A coward dies a thousand deaths, but a brave man dies but once. " He's also a Korean War vet, who is part of the The Chosen Few , which fought the Chinese at the Chosin Reservoir. He fought in 30 degrees below zero weather . Some time after he dedicated his life to teaching and learning God's word. Even though he's in Heaven now with God , his ability to teach will live on through The Shepherds Chapel CD/DVD ministry they built up; and continue to edify millions . God sent me to him to build me up in God's Words. God made sure I knew him, when I called out for help, when he cleared the static on the tv years ago, then I heard Murray's voice, and that feeling that I knew this man from long ago, took over, and I knew then in a instant that God reached out to me, and that He is real.
