Korean War

The Korean War (25 June 1950 – 27 July 1953) was a war between the Republic of Korea (supported primarily by the United States of America, with contributions from allied nations under the aegis of the United Nations) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (supported by the People's Republic of China, with military and material aid from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics).

Earlier today I lost my Father-in-Law at his home to cancer. He is the definition of a Hero. He served in the United States Army during the Korean War was shot advancing into North Korea. They were overrun by the North Koreans and they shot whoever couldn't walk to the prison camp. He was wounded and helped by one of the other men in his unit to get to the camp. He was a POW/MIA for five years. He was my friend and I am going to miss him very much.
Mama G passed in September and there are times the realization hits hard enough to take my breath. Talking to my students today about all the amazing inventions/things that happened in the last 100 years brought light to the immense sadness that still lies in my heart. She told story after story about all the wonderful things she experienced while growing up. The way they went to school, the cold of winter, how they battled the heat of summer, and the state of this old house when she moved into it. She was 8 when women were allowed to start voting. She was 17 during the Great Depression. She lived thru WW1, WW2, Hiroshima, Cold War, Korean War, Vietnam, the Fall of the Soviet Union and Operation Desert Storm. I still remember when she called to tell us that she had got her own phone line instead of sharing a party line with the lady down the road... The one who eavesdropped she was sure. Here is one of the few regrets I have in my life; while Aunt Kay and I was holding her hand at 3 in the morning, a few ...
The incredible superficiality and ignorance of our culture – and these people vote! An interview with people on the street – one woman was asked which of President’s Clinton’s accomplishments was most important: The ending of the Korean War or the Louisiana Purchase? She gushed and said, “The Louisiana Purchase!” Which means that Bill Clinton must be around 200 years old!
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. ...
Something you may not know about the great Clint Eastwood 'In 1951, Eastwood was drafted by the United States Army and assigned to Fort Ord in California, where he was appointed as a lifeguard and swimming instructor. According to high school friend Don Loomis, Eastwood avoided being sent to combat in the Korean War by "romancing one of the daughters of a Fort Ord officer, who might have been entreated to watch out for him when names came up for posting."While returning from a weekend visit to his parents in Seattle, Washington, he was a passenger on a Douglas AD bomber that ran out of fuel and crashed into the ocean near Point Reyes. Escaping from the sinking aircraft, he and the pilot swam 3 miles (5 km) to safety."
This was an eventful week back during the Korean War! Here's a look at what happened back then: Truman Fires MacArthur The White House makes a special late-night announcement that General Douglas MacArthur has been relieved of his duties. MacArthur learns of his firing when one of his aides hears the radio broadcast at headquarters and telephones the general's residence in Tokyo to tell him. Truman Speaks to Nation In a statement broadcast nationally on radio and television, President Truman explains why he has relieved General MacArthur of his position as Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers. He does not discuss the General's comments or the constitutional issues pertaining to MacArthur's insubordination, but instead stresses the American goal in Korea to avoid a third world war, and states that "a number of events have made it evident that General MacArthur did not agree with that policy."5 MacArthur Praised General MacArthur returns to the United States, arriving in San Francisco to a hero's welcome ...
Today John Pool, Steve Pool's father, was laid to rest. John Pool was a remarkable man who stormed the beaches of Normandy during World War Ii. Though wounded in that war, he went on to serve his country in the Korean War. John Pool was buried today with full military honors. Steve showed remarkable courage giving his father a tribute befitting the hero he was. I'm positive Steve's dad would have been incredibly proud of his son on this difficult day. Please keep Steve and his family in your hearts and prayers.
This would not surprise me. Truman was quite madly in love with Stalin. If the July 20, 1944 Valkyrie plot had succeeded, and we'd joined forces with the Wehrmacht as Patton wished, I think communism would have died in 1945 or 46 at the latest. Imagine, no communist China, meaning no Korean War, no Vietnam War, no Cold War, and we would not be farming out all our manufacturing over there so the government overseers could make trillions on the sweat of their enslaved people. We built strong countries when we outsourced to Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, etc. These REPUBLICS put the money into improving life for their people and raising the standard of living. What we are doing in China right now is the moral equivalent of Krupp using Jewish slaves to build their products.

Learn Our History Today: On April 11, 1951, during the Korean War, President Harry Truman relieved General Douglas MacArthur of overall command of U.S. forces in the conflict. Truman and MacArthur had had problems with one another going back to the War’s beginning. MacArthur constantly pushed for more aggressive tactics, such as invading North Korea and squashing communist forces. Truman agreed to an invasion of North Korea, but with the stipulation that MacArthur not get too close to communist China, which shared a northern border with Korea and might take U.S. forces in their backyard as a hostile act. MacArthur assured Truman that the Chinese would never invade and continued pushing toward the Chinese border at full throttle, halting near the Yalu River in winter 1950. At this point, Truman’s worst fears came true. Hundreds of thousands of Chinese troops charged American lines and within weeks had forced the U.S. back into South Korea. Desperate to strike back at the Chinese, MacArthur pleaded with ...

"On April 19, 1951, General Douglas MacArthur made a high-profile 'farewell address' to a joint meeting of Congress. Eight days earlier he’d been fired as the top commander of American forces in the Korean War by President Harry S. Truman - for publicly criticizing Truman’s denial of his request to nuke Red China (in retaliation for sending troops to fight against the U.S. in Korea.)"
Trivia time! Who Does the Delaware Memorial Bridge Honor? When the first span of the Delaware Memorial Bridge opened in 1951, the bridge was dedicated to people who died serving in World War Ii - especially those from New Jersey and Delaware. When the second span opened in 1968, those who died in the Korean War and Vietnam War were formally honored. On every Memorial Day and Veterans Day, a ceremony is held at a war memorial built near the Delaware Memorial Bridge in New Castle, Delaware. The memorial honors those who fought and died in war and has a special memorial wall bearing 15,000 names - all Delaware and New Jersey residents who died fighting in World War Ii, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Gulf War.

Transcript of the Article from Caswell Messenger (April 9, 2014): Grandson’s Book Honors Bryant By Patrick Womack/CASWELL MESSENGER An area man has recently published his first superhero novel, dedicating it to the sacrifices made by members of the U.S. military and to his grandfather, Korean War veteran and long-time Caswell County resident Joseph Marshall Bryant.

Set in North Carolina, the book deals with a fictional terrorist attack on downtown Charlotte and the subsequent mission by a superhero warrior, Knight Eagle, to find those responsible and bring them to justice. Boyer said the book is based on his thoughts and feelings following the events of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.The Knight Eagle symbolizes the heroic efforts of U.S. military personnel and veterans in keeping our country secure, he said. “I’m a very patriotic person, and like everyone else, I was touched ...
HERE SEE first generation of fighters Aircraft classified as first generation jet fightersare the first attempts at creation of military aircraft using jet engines. A few were developed during the closing days of World War Ii but saw very limited combat operations. The generation can be split into two broad groups: World War Ii era fighters such as the Me 262 and the Meteor and mature first generation fighters such as the F-86 used in the Korean War. 2 generation of fighters The second generation jet fighters existed between the mid-1950s to the early 1960s. 3 generation fighters The third-generation jet fighter was the class of fighters developed between the early 1960s to the 1970s. Fourth-generation jet fighter Fourth-generation jet fighter is a general classification of fighter aircraft in service from approximately 1980 to present day, and represent design concepts of the 1970s. Fourth-generation designs are heavily influenced by lessons learned from the previous generation of combat aircraft. Long- ...
Today in labor history, April 8, 1952: The day before a nationwide steelworkers’ strike was set to begin, President Harry S. Truman orders his Secretary of Commerce to seize control of the nation’s steel mills to keep them in production for the Korean War effort. On June 2, the Supreme Court ruled against the president.

Day, who was declared MIA during the Korean War in 1950.

Ted “Shorty” Riley, Jr. of Middleport, Ohio passed away at Overbrook Rehabilitation Center at the age of 82 on March 31, 2014. Born October 11, 1931 in West Columbia, West Virginia, he was the son of Theodore, Sr. and Mildred Roush Riley and was considered a loving, generous, and cheerful man by all who knew him. “Shorty” was an U.S. Army veteran of the Korean War, serving in the 47th Army Aircraft Mainte-nance Company. Following the war “Shorty” continued to serve his country as a member of 3664th Ordinance Company based out of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, including one year at Fort Polk, Louisiana during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and was honorably discharged as a Ser-geant in 1964. Ted married the love of his life, Clara Belle Gilmore, on October 20, 1955, and has always been known as a warm-hearted husband, father, and grandfather throughout their fifty-nine years to-gether. After his distinguished service Ted found employment at the Foote Mineral Co. and retired after 30 years as a furn ...
Lawton Mainor Chiles, Jr. (April 3, 1930 – Dec 12, 1998), American politician from the U.S. state of Florida. A Korean War veteran, Chiles later returned to Florida for law school and eventually opened his own private practice in 1955. Three years later, Chiles entered politics with a successful bid for the Florida House of Representatives in 1958, as a member of Democratic Party. By 1966, Chiles left the Florida House to run for the Florida Senate. Despite 12 years in the Florida Legislature, Chiles was relatively unknown when he initially decided to bid for United States Senate in 1970. Thus, he embarked on a 1,003 mile walk from Key West to Pensacola, earning him the nickname "Walkin' Lawton". It was successful and Chiles defeated his opponent William C. Cramer by a 53.9%-46.1% margin. Chiles retired from the United States Senate and from politics entirely in 1989. However, supporters convinced him to run for Governor of Florida in 1990 against the unpopular incumbent Bob Martinez. Chiles defeated Ma ...
I believe indifference to a crime is more insidious than a crime itself and that we all carry a badge and have a duty to insure the law is faithfully executed and that no person is above the law. I agree with President Obama’s decision not to prosecute Bush et al for war crimes because he correctly thought the Republicans would go ballistic and he was faced with ongoing war and the threat of another Great Depression because of the corruption of the banksters. That said, it is still our duty to prosecute Bush et al for war crimes. There is no rationalization that can explain away our duty to act. The argument that because other President have committed war crimes -both overt or covertly, is no excuse. Going back to the Korean War, that was a war declared by the UN security council in accordance with our UN treaty. And we are left to history to judge our dead US war criminals. A look back in history: I think our platform fails in not demanding the prosecution of Henry Kissinger for the violation o ...
My late grandfather Charles E. Huitt was not only a hero and a hard worker, but he was also a dearly beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle, etc. As a boy, his family lied about his birth-date so that he could begin working in the mills that littered the upstate of South Carolina, even as a boy of 14. As a soldier in the the Korean War, he was introduced to horrors and hardships that are unfit for any human psyche to experience. The war took from him his hearing, and as it always tends to do with any young man sent to fight and/or die in war, it robbed him of its innocence and imprinted itself forever into his mind in the form of PTSD. However, unlike 36,516 other young Americans, my Papa Huitt came home, found a wonderful woman, Lillie Cornelia Huitt (née Orr), that he cherished, adored, and devoted himself to wholly for the rest of his life. Together they built a family, with a son, James "Runt" Huitt, and thirteen years later, Charlene Huitt Ferguson. When he returned from the now-world- ...
** very important / Please have time to check the full post : (R1) Vaccines & Pharmaceuticals: Vaccines were hailed as one of the defining benchmarks achieved during the past century. In terms of Healthcare, vaccines were hailed as a miracle to cure debilitating diseases like Smallpox, Diphtheria, Measles and more recently, the H1N1 or Swine Flu. Let us delve into the history of the pharmaceutical Industries that make these vaccines. In 1946, future pharmaceutical czar George Merck reported to the US Secretary of War, that he'd managed to weaponise the toxin extracted from the Brucella bacterium and to isolate it into an indestructible crystalline form using only the DNA particles. Aerial spraying of the crystals via chemtrails was deployed on Chinese and Korean populations during the Korean War. Many veterans of the war later developed Multiple Sclerosis. The army recognized that the MS was Brucella-related and paid the veterans compensation. Although the Brucella micoplasma can lay dormant for decades, ...

"OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING, A SOLDIER DIED TODAY." Condolences and Gratitude - News Release March 31, 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.

Haunting History of : Sandon British Columbia, Canada Is a ghost town . By ~Susan Foster & Johnnie Bachusky Sandon is located in the interior of British Columbia in the Selkirk mountain range, in an area known as ‘The Valley of the Ghosts" Sandon was once a wild, wild place with saloon and casino brawlers living up to the town's brazen *** raising image as the heart and soul of the Silvery Slocan. Sandon was renowned as a rollicking community of wild-eyed silver-seeking prospectors: a town where fortunes were gained in a week and then lost overnight, and where gambling and ladies of the night routinely dominated the night life. The swashbuckling pioneer spirit ruled the roost, and so too did the "everything goes" lifestyle. "There was even a police chief who ran a house for prostitutes and dealt black jack at a casino," says Hal Wright, a long-time Sandon resident. In the early 1950s, the Korean War triggered another rebound for Sandon. In 1951, more than 1,000 people rushed to Sandon’s rejuvenated .. ...

"Mad Men" returns on April 13th. Series creator Matthew Weiner is saying that the theme for the upcoming season is consequences. If my calculations are correct, a significant chunk of the season will take place in 1969. So, what could happen to Don Draper et. al. in the way of consequences to their actions? Did Don impregnate his neighbor Sylvia during their affair? Does Don get found out by the feds for stealing another man's identity and going AWOL during the Korean War? Does Sally sneak off to Woodstock and find that it's not so great because of the rain, the mud, and lack of facilities? Did Joan get an STD from her one-night stand with the car dealer mogul? Does Betty have to choose between moving to Washington or divorcing Henry if he gets a job offer in the new Nixon administration? Your thoughts?

Finding happiness in Korea Whenever news from the North makes headlines, the world is hit by a certain nervousness. Especially for those with an interest in Korea, they contact friends and acquaintances via landline or the Internet each time North Korea news breaks, with worries about peace on the Korean Peninsula. Modern day South Koreans, however, are unexpectedly indifferent about these exchanges. Their somewhat uneager response is due not only to frequent reoccurrences. Also, time has taken away many of those with vivid memories of the Korean War (1950-1953). The younger generation has grown up amid material abundance and is busy living in the present. When asked about reunification, these young people may show no interest in the subject, or even worry about a possible negative aftermath. In an era when over 25,000 North Korean defectors live amid the urban hustle of South Korea, finding common ground between North and South can still be a difficult task. Especially for the defectors, adjusting to Kor ...
On July 27, 1950, Eighth Army commander Walton Walker gave a "stand or die" order to his troops in what would be a six week struggle against North Koreans known as the Battle of Pusan Perimeter during the Korean War. U.S and UN Coalition forces had been backed into a corner controlling just 10 percent of the Korean Peninsula. A loss of the Pusan Perimeter to North Korea could have meant the end for opposing forces. The success of the Eighth Army came from a combination of ground fighting,close air strikes and off shore naval support that allowed the U.S. forces to inflict more damage on the North Koreans than they could handle. Holding the Pusan Perimeter turned the tide in favor of the South Koreans and their allies. Had the defense at the Pusan Perimeter failed, a democratic and free South Korea may have never existed. The sacrifices of the Eighth Army for victory would be large totaling 4,280 killed in action, 12,377 wounded, 2,107 missing and 401 confirmed captured. It is in respect to Americans such ...

I didn't know of this until it was pointed out to me. Back during the Great Depression, Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL Illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that Desperately needed work. Harry Truman deported over two million illegal Aliens after WWII to create jobs for Returning veterans. In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexicans. The program was called Operation *** It was done so WWII and Korean War veterans would have a better chance At jobs. It took two years, but they deported them! Now, if they could Deport the illegal aliens back then, they could surely do it today. If you have Doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation *** into your Favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself. Why, you might ask, can't they do ...
More than 450 Korean War veterans and families at Honor Flight banquet. Great night honoring veterans.

OLD FART PRIDE I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only old fart receiving it. Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called, as you will see. · Old Farts are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem. Old Farts remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them. · Old Farts remember accounts of World War Ii, Dunkirk, the D-Day landings and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember Vietnam. Some of them probably went to free rock concerts in Hyde Park in the 60s. · If you bump into an Old Fart on the pavement he will apologize. If you pass an Old Fart on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old Farts trust strangers and are courteous to women · Old Farts hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection. · Old Farts get embarrassed if someone curses ...

I am a candidate of humble means. I grew up in your 'typical' Main Street American family. My mother was a surgical technician, step-father was a WW2/Korean War veteran and auto mechanic. I have 2 older brothers, 1 younger. We lived in a simple track home in Cypress, CA. My parents worked hard, but never took a handout. They raised us to work hard. My mother said, if you really want a job, you can find one.. might not be the one you want, but you can find a job. My family wasn't really politically active, but I knew my parents voted... democrat... but they voted. The time is long past when we elect Main Street Americans to the US Senate and other positions. The Citizen Stateswoman. I'm not a politician, not elite, not a member of the political machine...I am the one candidate in Oregon who will not cave, will not waiver. I will be steadfast. Humbly I ask for your prayers and financial support. I know I ask often, but very few people, donate. Many people who have told me they will vote for me, have ...
Ohio Church leader Lamson and Roods sided with a Japanese rice farmer from Eastern Japan in a UC divorce with a decendent of a Korean War victim whose mother is from North Korea. Apparently the farmers reason for divorce was to inherit his farm asset from his father. The church leaders approved of him as well as his slandering of the woman in the breakup and after the divorce the farmers land got contaminated with radiation. Now the leaders claim that they were on the correct side of the tsunami flood judgement..but the woman...me had been suffering for 40 years in loneliness to get the blessing! In fact leaders these days are using the korean and WWII victims as an excuse to gain assets and as a pretext for war unrelated to the victims themselves. In fact Blessed Couples think secularly half the time as their faith wavers so they side with their national interests half the time. Actually I cannot support any leader who uses my family as a way to get rich. See my full blog at

Korean War veterans renew push for addition to memorial
America has been in a state of emergency for over 35 years. Did you notice? The term "State of Emergency" conjures up images of war and civilian unrest, but according to law, there are many states of emergency that the US government may declare. The concept behind declaring a state of emergency is to allow the government the ability to change certain functions of their legal, legislative or executive operation during that time. In the United States, there can be a national state of emergency or a local state of emergency. The local declarations are generally done by governors in response to natural disasters, while national declarations are more related to international events and conflicts. There have been a number of long running emergency states in America over the years. In 1933, the banking crisis triggered a state of emergency as did the 1950's Korean War. Two declarations issued in the early 1970's relating to the postal strike and the rampant inflation all remained in force for some time. However, ...
Home that had been in family of 82-year-old Korean War vet for 100 years renovated by volunteers:
My Dad, Preston Sowell, passed away last Saturday, March 15th, on the Ides of March, from complications due to a fall he sustained two weeks before. He successfully braved three cancers over the last 20 yrs, & just 5 months ago to the day, his son's death. He served in the Korean War, retired from General Motors after 32 yrs, and performed as a lobbyist. He wore a tattoo of my Mom’s name surrounded by flowers on his left shoulder. He was a charismatic man and one who never backed down from a fight. The original prankster who could tell a funny story better than anyone - he was the life of the party. He kept Ezra Brooks whiskey in business, and loved to water ski and spend weekends on his Cabin Cruiser. The son of a fiddle-playing, primitive Baptist preacher, my Dad was an award-winning pool player, coming home with trophies, jade-handled pool cues, and pockets full of money. He was the first to take up a collection for someone in need, and he would cry easily at anything sentimental, and he had our bac ...

For there the Lord bestows His blessing, even life forevermore.” Psalm 133 Remember the television show M*A*S*H? It was based on an American emergency medical unit in the Korean War. This group of people was composed of some very different personalities. There was Hawkeye Pierce, B.J., and Father Mulcahy. There was Colonel Potter, Radar, and Hotlips Houlihan. They were always playing jokes on one another and arguing over different political views and the war. But there was always one thing that brought these characters together.

Sometimes i get the feeling the media are not reporting the whole truth about situations. Here is a list of military activity by the righteous and peace loving "good guys" and a similar list of actvitity by the aggressive, territorial, bully boy "bad guys", since the 1950's. Dont bother reading them -it'd take a while. Just scroll down comparing the length of the 2 lists - that ought to tell you all you need to know in under 10 seconds.

When it is 30 below zero you can't survive in a tent. How we managed it on the North Korean Island of Cho' Do during the Korean War was with a Japanese "Foot Warmer." It's a small container you fill with cigarette lighter fluid, light it with a match, put it in a felt bag and throw it in the bottom of your sleeping bag. The leaking lighter fluid burns slowly and it keeps the sleeping bag warm all night ! I don't know what the Army does now but I'm sure the lighter fluid deal wouldn't pass muster in 2014.

Master Rhee, can we discuss some of your military experiences - your time as instructor of the South Korean Marine Corps, for example? "Yes, I was with the Marines for three years, teaching the art for unarmed combat purposes. During the Korean War this Marine Corps became known as the 'Demon Hunter Korean Marines'; the nickname was given by the President of the United States. They were very good fighters and they always trained very hard." Did you modify the traditional techniques for military applications? "Yes. Their purpose was simply to kill the enemy. So the training was slightly different from civilian training. Simple, deadly techniques. Plus some bayonet sparring and knife training." Have you modified and updated the original art, over the years, for modern Australian conditions? "Yes, today the art is more advanced in free-sparring, compared to the old days. Maybe slightly less power in individual techniques, but faster, more advanced combinations and free-sparring." This was from a interview wi ...

James "Jim" Henry (Richard Conte) fresh out of the Korean War with medals to prove it, makes a pit stop in Las Vegas to visit an Army Captain friend. While at a bar, Jim meets Terri Smith (Mary Beth Hughes), a floozy he buys a drink for just to be friendly. She misinterprets something he says, he tries to walk away, but in her anger, she won't let him, and after a short struggle, they smooth it over with a kiss. While waiting by a roadside to hitch a ride the next day, he's picked up by the cops, whose commander, Detective Joe White Eagle (Reed Hadley), doesn't tell him why until they take him to a murder scene, the victim revealed as Terri, who's been strangled by a strap. Jim manages to overpower the officers and takes their guns, then commandeers a patrol car, abandoning it to change clothes and find a ride. He helps out two women, Mrs. Cummings (Joan Bennett), a fashion photographer, and her assistant, Susan Willis (Wanda Hendrix), whose car has broken down in the desert while traveling to an Apple Va ...
Just received a DVD from the USS Saint Paul Association. The heavy cruiser I was stationed on before going in-country. The Saint Paul fired the last shots on Japan mainland in WWII. The last rounds in the Korean War. Was the biggest Navy guns in Vietnam until the New Jersey was deactivated. Fired the most 5 and 8 inch rounds of any ship in Naval History, The most decorated Cruiser in Navy history. I served on her from Dec 67 until the end of 1969 and made two Sea Dragon West PAC tours. The last time I saw the Saint Paul is when she was at mouth of DaNang Harbor and we took SWIFT Boat out to mooch some ice cream in 1970. Being a MM on a old black oil ship, I volunteered for any job I could to get out of the engine room. One of the jobs I got was loading the powder bags in Turrent 2' Left Upper Powders. Sort of scary being locked in that little closet with 2. 86 pounds of gunpowder and told if any leaked out of bag, that Zi couldn't move because it could cause an explosion.

March 14 1943 La Senia, Algeria - A-20 and P-39 aircraft of the 111th Observation Squadron begin flying convoy escort missions looking for German submarines. The unit, organized in the Texas Guard in June 1923, deployed to Algeria as part of the Allied invasion of French North Africa in November 1942. Later in the war, under its new designation as the 111th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron, it flew missions during the invasions of Sicily, Italy and Southern France, ending the war in Germany. For its service it earned nine combat streamers. Reorganized in the Texas Air Guard after the war, it was mobilized for the Korean War in September 1950. It was one of six Guard squadrons to actually serve in Korea, earning three additional streamers. In the mid-1960s it was issued F-102 Delta Dagger fighter-interceptor aircraft to use in homeland defense against possible Soviet bomber attack. Not mobilized in 1968 with other Air Guard squadrons for service during the Vietnam War, it continued to patrol America's skie ...

162-word summary on the Korean War from "UFOs ETs and Alien Abductions" written by Don Donderi. On June 25, 1950, Communist North Korea attacked South Korea. Within weeks the North Koreans overran most of South Korea except a beachhead around the southern port city of Busan, held by the South Koreans with the help of American troops rushed in from the occupation forces in Japan. The Soviet Union made a political error by boycotting a UN Security Council meeting, and the UN passed a resolution condemning the invasion and calling on other governments to support the South Koreans. A surprise American amphibious landing at Incheon, near South Korea’s capital, Seoul, returned the initiative to the Allies who surged through North Korea all the way to the Yalu River, the border with Communist China. The Allies were driven back by Chinese Communist troops to roughly the 38th parallel, the prewar boundary between the two Koreas. An armistice in 1953 brought the fighting to a halt, but there is no peace treaty an ...

Nick Clegg's Speech being delivered right now - View on Sky News Since I became the Deputy Prime Minister I have had the privilege of spending a bit of time representing Britain’s interests in other parts of the world. I have visited Latin America and Asia to boost exports. I have been to Africa, where we are building better education systems as well as helping fight corruption, poverty and disease. I have travelled to different parts of Europe and the United States to promote British trade. And while each trip varies from the last, there is a thread which runs through them all: you get to see Britain through other people’s eyes. Everywhere I have been – every nation around the planet – has its own story about Britain. On a trade mission to South Korea I paid my respects at a war memorial at the bottom of a hill where, during the Korean War, British soldiers – heavily outnumbered – fought for three solid days to hold back North Korean and Chinese forces. It is a battle that every single South ...

North Korea Fires Missiles After Recent Easing of Tensions North Korea fired four short-range missiles, the first confirmed launch in more than nine months, disrupting a period of easing tensions with the South. The missiles were fired into the sea from North Korea’s east coast shortly before 6 p.m. local time yesterday, and had a range of at least 200 kilometers (124 miles), South Korea’s Defense Ministry said. The launches came just two days after the countries wrapped up the first reunions in more than three years of families divided by the 1950-1953 Korean War, which ended without a peace treaty. Still, the North has denounced the U.S.-South Korean drills that began this week as a rehearsal for war, and the annual exercises previously prompted angry reactions from Kim Jong Un’s regime. “North Korea is keeping its head up in the face of the South Korean-U.S. drills,” Sohn Yong Woo, a professor of North Korean studies at the Graduate School of National Defense Strategy of Hannam University in ...

Koreas wrap up family reunions Iran Press TV Tue Feb 25, 2014 11:20AM GMT The two Koreas have wrapped up the reunion of divided families, after hundreds of families met at a North Korean resort. More than 350 South Koreans said a final farewell to 88 North Korean relatives at the Mount Kumgang resort on Tuesday. The second and last round of the reunions began on February 23, a day before South Korea and the United States launched their joint military drill. The first group of family reunions took place between February 20 and 22. Millions of Koreans who were split by war have been waiting to reunite since the Korean War ended in a ceasefire in 1953. No peace deal has been signed since then, meaning that North and South Korea remain technically at war. Since late 2010, the two countries have held brief reunions between relatives living on either side of the border. Some 22,000 Koreans have had the chance to briefly meet with relatives. Some 18,000 of those Koreans have met relatives in person and the remai ...
N.

The South and North Koreans exchanged gifts with each other in their hotel rooms. South Koreans prepared clothing, medicine, and snacks by themselves whereas North Koreans gave the gift prepared by the North Korea government, according to Hankook Ilbo, Monday. Kim Kyung-sook, an 81-year-old from South Korea was separated from her older brother during the Korean War. Kim felt like she was dreaming when she heard her missing brother was looking for her. Kim finally met her brother and brought an armful of gifts, including clothing and daily necessities for him. However, Kim's brother yelled at her, saying "Even though you are well-off, this is too extravagant!" Kim was so surprised that she couldn’t speak but shed her tears endlessly.

ICYMI, last week Keizer resident Robert Robison received long-overdue medals for his service during the Korean War:
US-S Korea kick off annual military drills US Army expected to scale back its annual exercise with South Korea, due to conciliatory steps by Pyongyang. South Korea kicked off its annual joint military exercises with the United States, despite vocal opposition from North Korea. Monday's start of this year's drills overlaps with the first reunion of families divided by the Korean War in three years, an event that has raised hopes of greater North-South cooperation, AFP news agency reports. Pyongyang had initially insisted that the joint exercises be postponed until after the reunion finishes on Tuesday, but Seoul refused and in a rare concession, the North allowed the family gathering to go ahead as scheduled. The annual "Key Resolve" and "Foal Eagle" drills, routinely condemned by North Korea as rehearsals for invasion, will last until April 18 and involve a combined total of 12,700 US troops and many more from South Korea. "Key Resolve" lasts just over a week and is a largely computer-simulated exercise, ...

Families torn apart for more than 60 years -- separated by the Korean War -- began to reunite at a mountain resort in North Korea Thursday.
More than 100 South Koreans have crossed into North Korea to meet with relatives they have not seen since the 1950s Korean War. Pyongyang has not allowed the emotional reunions since 2010 and analysts have said the isolated nation uses them for political purposes.
10 People You May Not Have Know Were United States Marines 1. Orville Burell aka Shaggy - Jamaican-American reggae singer. 2. Gene Hackman - Actor. 3. James Carville - Political Adviser - Served 2 years active duty. 4. Lee Trevino - Golfer - Served 4 years active duty. 5. Pat Roberson - Pastor & Evangelist - Officer during the Korean War. 6. Drew Carey - Actor - 6 years United States Marine Corps Reserves. 7. Captain Kangaroo (Bob Keeshan) - The myth is that he fought along side of Lee Marvin is just that.

BACK FROM ATLANTA AT 10:20. GOT STUCK IN TRAFFIC BECAUSE OF SOMEONE AHEAD OF US INVOLVED IN TRAFFIC ACCIDENT. We sat there for about an hour. Jim got a good report of the eye problem. We had a great time of it though. I met an old marine that had served in WW2 in the Pacific Islands and the Korean War too! He is a black guy originally from Ohio. He noticed my Anderson County Veterans Association cap and started the conservation. He was a very nice fellow to talk with. Said he was 90 years old, but he sure didn't look it at all. Also he is a retired Methodist preacher. He lives in Atlanta now. His son was with him and he was a nice fellow too! We finally got out of Emory Eye Clinic at 7PM. Ate dinner in Atlanta and it sure was a good one. I enjoyed the trip with my good friend Jim Brock!! I'll bet we talked about you while we were traveling!!
The 5th Fighter Group originally had nine Stinson L-5 Sentinels, one C-47 aircraft and eighteen F-51 Mustangs. By 1950, fifty more F-51 Mustangs, and twenty-two North American T-6 Texan trainer planes were added to bolster the training of fighter pilots. In 1957, the propeller-driven Mustangs gave way to the T-33 jet trainer aircraft and the Korean War-tested North American F-86 Sabre jets. In 1960, the Philippine Air Force added the F-86D all-weather interceptors to its fighter aircraft arsenal. The 5th Fighter Wing eventually acquired the jet-powered, twin-engined, F-5A/B "Freedom Fighter" supersonic aircraft, which ushered the Philippine Air Force into the supersonic jet age. This positioned the 5th Fighter Wing as the spearhead of defense, responsible for air reconnaissance, interdiction and ground support. In 1978, a fleet of F-8H Crusaders were acquired from the US Navy. The last of the Crusaders were decommissioned in 1988 from the Philippine Air Force inventory because of high maintenance costs. A ...
This morning I'm not cutting loose with my usual attack on the Obama Administration. Two days ago I responded, again, on the story put out by a group here on Face book about the National Defense Resources Preparedness Act of 1950. This renewal by Obama in March 2012 has set a certain group of individuals off on another instance of Obama by passing congress to change a law by executive order. Yes, Obama has on numerous occasions broken Constitutional law issuing these orders. But NOT in this case! He amended Section 201b by adding the phrase "under both emergency and non emergency conditions." Although the revision does sound strange it still does not give the President carte blanche to declare martial law. As for the going around of congress on the order, not so. The law was passed by congress in 1950 as a result of the Korean War. ALL presidents since Truman have renewed this law as needed over the last 60+ years. Provisions within the law itself gives the conducting and enforcing of the programs contai ...

This Day in Baseball History -- from Mary Landers ... It was 61 years ago today -- On Feb. 19, 1953, Boston Red Sox star Ted Williams crash-lands his fighter plane after flying a combat mission during the Korean War. The heroic Williams survives the landing and will return to play 37 games for the Red Sox late in the 1953 season. Williams had missed all but six games of the 1952 season, as well as all of the 1943-45 seasons while serving in the Armed Forces.

The following tribute was forwarded from Regimental Secretary The Royal Irish Regiment. It is with sadness that we inform you of the sad passing, on 9th February 2014, of Major General Logan Scott-Bowden CBE DSO MC the first Commander UDR. Logan Scott-Bowden had a quite unique military career. He commissioned into the Royal Engineers in 1939 and fought in Norway in 1940 before moving to liaison duties in Canada in 1941. But it was in the lead up to the D-day landings that he distinguished himself as a Major in the Normandy Beach Reconnaissance Team. He twice swam from a midget submarine (X-Craft) in poor conditions right under the very noses of the German sentries to test the beaches (in particular Omaha ) to see if they could sustain tanks and other vehicles. For this he was awarded the DSO (for the first operation) and the MC (for the second operation). He was awarded the MC for a second time in 1946. Following a post war career in the far East he fought in the Korean War before being promoted Lt ...
I'll be speaking to Al Jazeera TV at 7pm tonight about the releasing of Report on Human Rights in North Korea by the UN HRC COI in Geneva. Last week, while answering Justice Kirby's question regarding the best way to reach out to the DPRK's leadership, Christopher Richardson and I recommend preambling the COI's report with allusions to the deep historical and political roots of North Korean behaviour: i.e. the legacy of colonialism, wartime brutality, a Cold War mentality, and mistrust of the international community. These problems are characteristic of all Northeast Asia, but Korea, at its pivotal point, has harboured the most extreme human rights violations as a result. This problem cannot be resolved unilaterally, nor swiftly, without transforming the political climate of the whole region: that is to say, ending the Korean War, diplomatically recognising the DPRK, lifting economic sanctions against it, and improving all forms of exchange with the North. In a perpetual and assiduously cultivated 'state ...
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 ...

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 ...
Cinema in Korea started as it did in many other countries, with imported silent films shown first until Korean film studios began crafting their own films in the 1920s. The first sound film was released in 1935, and even though its quality was poor, it enjoyed popularity with audiences eager to hear their own language on screen. The influence of Japan on Korean cinema (and politics) also began in the 1930s, and the subsequent wars (World War Ii, the Korean War) greatly impacted the output of Korean cinema. In 1981, the first South Korean film was shown at European film festivals, beginning the gradual international attention. Unfortunately many early Korean films have yet to reach America, but we’ve picked some of our favorite films to showcase the modern South Korean film industry, including star directors Park Chan-wook (Oldboy), Kim Ki-duk (3-Iron), Lee Chang-dong (Poetry), and Bong Joon *** (The Host).

Did you know that during the Korean War, the US Air Force dropped more than 600,000 tons of bombs on North Korea?
I was stationed at Kapaun Air Station in Germany many years ago. Familiar with this mans story in Korean War.
Karl Arthur Olson (1930–2010) of Kentfield was an all-star player for Tam High, Class of 1948, and signed with the Boston Red Sox that same year. He started his baseball career with the American Association Triple-A Louisville Colonels before joining the CA League team - the San Jose Red Sox. He was a backup outfielder for the Boston Red Sox (1951,1953–55), the Washington Senators (1956–57), and the Detroit Tigers (1957). He missed the 1952 season to join the Service during the Korean War. In his six-season career, Olson was a .235 hitter with six home runs and 50 RBI's in 279 games played.
Most people I've spoken to abhor North Korea. Some people are even scared that North Korea might unleash a nuclear weapon on us. As deserving as we are, that will never happen. Often people make fun of the country, its political leader and it's people, known for living in a backward, lackluster and depressed economy. Global sanctions and embargoes for decades notwithstanding. I think Dennis Rodman reads books. North Korea has an untold and virtually unwritten history because the victors write the history books. Imagine, most of us have no clue as to what happened during the Korean War but the story is the same the world over. North Korea is no different than Iraq, Libya, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia and Syria. We terrorized the nation into submission and bombed them back to the stone age. When the Americans defeated Japan in 1945 they occupied Korea and they massacred 60,000 people on Jeju Island. They massacred millions more. Great dams in North Korea were bombed to unleash deadly tsunami's, anti-p ...
Today's Congressional Medal of Honor quote of the day comes from Colonel Edward Rightor Schowalter, Jr. (U.S. Army, December 24, 1927 – November 21, 2003); he was a United States Army officer in the Korean War who received the U.S. military's highest decoration, the Medal of Honor. He was awarded the medal for commanding his company in an assault against a fortified position, and for continuing to lead after being seriously wounded. "We didn't break faith with those who died." Colonel Schowalter's official Medal of Honor Citation reads: 1st Lt. Schowalter, commanding, Company A, distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry and indomitable courage above and beyond the call of duty in action against the enemy. Committed to attack and occupy a key-approach to the primary objective, the 1st Platoon of his company came under heavy vicious small-arms, grenade, and mortar fire within 50 yards of the enemy-held strongpoint, halting the advance and inflicting several casualties. The 2d Platoon moved up in supp ...

SO angry!!! So I checked the standards for American History II for my daughter to make sure she knows what she needs to know to get credit for the course. So as per my usual, I check the Texas Department of Education. Unfortunately, the only TEKS I could find showed all the revisions made to them a few years ago. What got cut? Vietnam, Korean War, Sputnik, just about EVERYTHING about the Cold War, The Civil Rights Act of 1964, most of the Great Depression, the role of citizens & nonprofits in consumer protection and environmental conservation, the Sherman Antitrust Act... The list goes on! What got added? Reaganomics, the importance of the free enterprise system, the impeachment of Bill Clinton (who wasn't impeached anyways), Billy Graham, country & western music, and Oprah Winfrey. I wish I was kidding.
Very cool! My grandpa, a Korean War veteran, was honored by the last week!

Vietnam War Statistics If you’re a Vietnam veteran who hasn’t been paying attention these past few decades, the clock has been ticking. Of the 2,709,918 Americans who served in Vietnam, less than 850,000 are estimated to be alive today, with the youngest American Vietnam veteran's age approximated to be 54 years old. So, if you're reading this, how does it feel to be among the last 1/3rd of all the U.S. veterans who served in Vietnam? I don't know about you guys, but it gives me the chills, considering this is the kind of information I'm used to reading about World War Ii and Korean War vets.

The program will mark key anniversaries in the Black American Experience, including 20 years since the passing of historic band leader and jazz singer Cab Calloway, 40 years since the inception of The Jeffersons (a network television milestone), and 65 years since the assignment of Jessie L.

North Korea has threatened to cancel family reunions with the South, a day after agreeing to hold them. Its top military body said in a statement that it would reconsider the deal if joint US-South Korea military exercises went ahead. "Dialogue and exercises of war" could not go hand in hand, South Korea's Yonhap news agency quoted the North Korean statement as saying. The two Koreas last held reunions for divided families in 2010. The next reunions - for family members separated when the Korean Peninsula was partitioned at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War - are scheduled for 20 February. Read More: BBC News Asia ---

Let me tell you about the greatest man I ever knew. My dad, Jose Bruno Batista. A husband, father, grandfather and friend to so many. An Army veteran who serviced in WW II, the Korean War and Vietnam Conflict, serving for 28 years. A man of high values, commitment and spirit. Never one to start a fight but never one to back down from a fight either. Proud of his heritage, country and faith. The man who made me the man I am today. Never one to tell me what to do but rather advise me on the road to take. To this day, I rely on all the talks and stories he would convey to me. I sit here writing this tribute to my dad on the eve of his 90th birthday. Remembering, the man who gave me life, 28 years after he was taken from my mother, brother, sisters, grand kids and so many of his friends. On June 29, 1986, on a family outing to celebrate the birthday of one of his granddaughters, a 19 year old Army soldier got into a car after drinking all night, slammed into the car my family was riding in.

Well, my Dad passed away yesterday. He'd been in a bad way for quite a while and hopefully he is finally at peace. If there is a heaven, he certainly earned a place there. For those of you that don't know, I have two brothers that are special needs and my Dad cared for them pretty much until he was physically unable to do it any longer. He was an old school, man's man, who just did what he had to do for his family. I only hope I can be half the man he was. My Uncle Pete said it best tonight when he said, "he's my hero." Oh, yeah, and I almost forgot, he served his country in the Korean War and was actually a POW. He never spoke about it much, but it was great to see that he received a hero's welcome when he was repatriated and returned to Rhode Island. Dad, I'm sorry I never told you this, but you're my hero too. Rest in peace.
