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).

Learn Our History Today: On October 14, 1890, United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower was born near Denison, Texas. Eisenhower graduated from the Military academy at West Point, New York in 1915, and then proceeded to embark on an extraordinary military career. Most famously, Eisenhower served as the supreme commander of allied forces in Europe during World War II, leading or taking part in the assaults on North Africa, France, and Germany. After the war, He served as president of Columbia University before becoming President of the United States, beating out Democrat Adlai Stevenson. During his presidency, which lasted two terms, Eisenhower ended the Korean War, managed the developing Cold War and checked the spread of communism, and created the interstate highway system. After departing the White House, Eisenhower continued to be active and involved in the Republican Party until his death on March 28, 1969 of heart failure.

Free Dental Care for Vets on Veterans Day! On November 11th at 7am Dr. Joan Laura will be a hero in her own right. She is opening the doors to her dental practice for free dental care to any vet who walks in through her doors. This will be Dr. Laura's third year helping vets, and she couldn't be more proud. "My parents instilled a strong sense of patriotism in each of their kids." This due to the fact that her father, the late Dr. John Laura... also a dentist served in the Korean war and her Grandfather, Anthony Ross, was a World War 1 vet. Each vet can choose either a cleaning, a filling or an extraction. They simply need to bring proof of their status and complete a short medical history form. The office is located at Eastwood Dental, 2326 James Street, Syracuse, NY. No eligible patient will be turned away. Dr. Laura would love to exceed the 32 patients she cared for last year. For any questions to the office call, (315) 438-3 (Info provided by: Syracuse Army Recruiting Battalion)
Today we celebrated the life of Donald "Smoky" Peterson. Not only will I remember his kind soul, and great sense of humor, he was a true American hero. He served in the Korean War in the United States Marine Corps. He was a member of The Chosin Few. The Battle of the Chosin Reservoir was one the the most horrific battles of the Korean War, pitting 15,000 Allied ground troops against 120,000 Chinese infantrymen in 40 below zero conditions. Smoky was one of the chosen few who lived through it. He was the only survivor of his 25 man unit. It took him over a week to get out, walking day and night in freezing conditions, surviving on the tootsie roll in his pocket and his canteen of water (mixed with whiskey so it would not freeze). He was an amazing man. Hearing the story of his bravery today, and experiencing the military funeral honors is something I will never forget.
DMZ Train. The Gyeongwon Line, the train line that runs between Seoul and North Korea’s city of Wonsan in the northern part of Gangwon-do, was built in 1914 and was later disconnected when Korea was divided. Korail launched their second DMZ Train on August 1, 2014 to celebrate the train line’s 100th year. The Gyeongwon Line takes visitors from Seoul Station to Baengmagoji Station, the northernmost station. Meanwhile, the Gyeongui Line, which opened in May this year, runs from Seoul Station to Dorasan Station. The lead car’s design inspiration came from a rusty steam locomotive while the interior is decorated with pinwheels and mugunghwa (Korea’s national flower). The Road to Baengmagoji The DMZ Train has three cars, each designed with a different theme and with a different message. The Peace Car (lead car) has a rusty steam locomotive motif, conjuring up images of hope and memories of the past. The other two cars are decorated with images of people from across the globe holding hands, symbolizing ...
Well I was sitting at my gate at Reagan National Airport in Wash DC the other day and couldn't help but notice these dapper folks in spats, pin-stripes, anchors away dresses. Then some catchy swing music came on strong and a bunch of WWII vets landed at our gate. They came off the plane beaming, giving autographs and taking a turn on the spontaneous dance floor. I came to learn all of this is sponsored by a non-profit group called the Honor Flight Network. They bring all kinds of U.S. war veterans to D.C. to tour the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the National World WarII Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and other memorial sites, such as Arlington National Cemetery. Any vet in America can qualify and is brought in absolutely gratis, but they are especially concentrating these days on WWII vets as the youngest of these individuals who served are now 85 years old. As a matter of fact, an astounding 640 WWII vets die every single day. By the way, I learned on their web site ( that oth ...
Very humbling experience while traveling today. From Little Rock, I boarded a plane with 90 veterans from WW2, Korean War and Viet Nam war, and their chaperones who were returning from their Honor Flight from DC. I had the privilege of sitting with a veteran from the Korean War. To all of you, I say THANK YOU!
Estimates of North Korean dead in the Korean war: 1.6M. American dead: 38,000. Had we just nuked PyongYang, far fewer than 1.6M North Koreans would have died – and NO Americans. The morally correct choice was nuclear weapons. Estimates of North Vietnamese and VC dead in the Vietnam War: 2M. American dead: 58,000. Had we used nuclear weapons on Hanoi in 1963, far fewer than 2M enemy, and zero American dead. The morally correct choice: Nuclear weapons.
Did you know the Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornets can be made combat ready in about 72 hours? This footage was recorded when the Blue Angels were ordered on combat-ready status in 1950 during the start of the Korean War. Can you name the jet fighter flown by the Blues in this video?
Does anyone else find it a little unnerving that Kim Jong Un has disappeared from the publics eye?! My Uncle Clair who fought in the Korean War always said keep your eye on North Korea. I really miss my uncle and good long talks.

The Grumman F7F Tigercat was the first twin-engined fighter aircraft to enter service with the United States Navy. Designed for the new Midway-class aircraft carriers, the aircraft were too large to operate from earlier decks. Although delivered to United States Marine Corps (USMC) combat units before the end of World War II, the Tigercat did not see combat service in that war. Most F7Fs ended up in land-based service, as attack aircraft or night fighters; only the later F7F-4N was certified for carrier service. They saw service in the Korean War and were withdrawn from service in 1954.

Comments this morning by Colonel, USAF, Retired Curtis Dale to Colorado Board of Education regarding AP History curriculum: "Ladies and Gentlemen, I was invited to come as a Veteran of 27 years in the Air Force and opine on the Advanced Placement College Board History curriculum. Holding a BS, Masters and PhD, all in the field of Education, wasn’t a factor. But that background helped me evaluate this flawed effort. I’m insulted, disappointed, even infuriated at this attempt at what I’ll call “ADVOCACY HISTORY.” Advocacy Journalism is when supposedly unbiased, balanced, and evenhanded in reporting, instead, become advocates of personal agendas. This AP History Curriculum is a perfect parallel to Advocacy Journalism. It is bias against America, finding fault and ignoring its best. It finds American Exceptionalism repulsive. When I found the efforts of millions of comrades to arms in the Korean War, and my Brothers in the Vietnam War reduced to ONE SENTENCE in the curriculum, I was insulted. I am . ...

If you include World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War with the Soviet Union, the Vietnam War, and the “War on Terror” that began in 2001 and continues to this day, the United States has been at war for 61 of the last 73 years. For most of the last thirty of them we’ve relied on an “all volunteer” army, which is “volunteer” only in the sense that young people have taken these jobs because they were among the best they could get. As we move into another phase of the war on terror, isn’t it time we reinstituted national service? Two years in the armed service or in service to America in some other capacity, required of every young American. It would remind all young people of their obligations to our society, and remind many upper-income Americans of the personal costs and risks of foreign policy. What do you think?
our tribute to another unsung workhorse.the F-84. The Republic F-84 Thunderjet was an American turbojet fighter-bomber aircraft. Originating as a 1944 United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) proposal for a "day fighter", the F-84 flew in 1946. Although it entered service in 1947, the Thunderjet was plagued by so many structural and engine problems that a 1948 U.S. Air Force review declared it unable to execute any aspect of its intended mission and considered canceling the program. The aircraft was not considered fully operational until the 1949 F-84D model and the design matured only with the definitive F-84G introduced in 1951. In 1954, the straight-wing Thunderjet was joined by the swept-wing F-84F Thunderstreak fighter and RF-84F Thunderflash photo reconnaissance aircraft. The Thunderjet became the USAF's primary strike aircraft during the Korean War, flying 86,408 missions and destroying 60% of all ground targets in the war as well as eight Soviet-built MiG fighters. Over half of the 7,524 F-84s produc ...

By DEB KUNKLE City Editor OELWEIN — “Mission Accomplished” — It was a feeling of satisfaction, the vibe of a job well done, that characterized the Oelwein Veterans Park Re-Dedication Ceremony Saturday, Sept. 27. The foresight of Bob McNamara, his family and friends more than 15 years ago has evolved into a truly wonderful place of tribute to veterans. It was McNamara’s idea to make use of the odd-shaped remnant of land left by the rerouting of Highway 150 through Oelwein. He thought it was the perfect location for a monument to remember local soldiers from the Korean War, Vietnam War and to the present conflicts. He and several friends erected the original monument that was dedicated May 15, 1999. Several years ago, Marv Leverington approached the American Legion with a vision to enhance the area with bricks, statues and flags, giving it more visibility. As legionnaires, other citizens and the city of Oelwein embraced the idea, the project began to take shape, brick-by-brick, piece-by-piece and ...

Hitler created a tyranny. Bush/Obama have created a more careful tyranny, a tyranny of the mind. He is in command of a CIA/MI-6/MOSSAD mind controlled army called ISIS, staffed with US/UK/French mind control drones. He can tell his CIA puppet to send ISIS into California, to London, to Paris or Berlin and stage beheadings there, and the US will be able to bomb California, London, Paris or Berlin with all Europe Canada and Australia supporting him and United Nations remaining silent and compliant, just as happened with the bombing of Syria now. "Laws" allowing the US president to bomb any terrorist on any foreign country without congressional approval or that "foreing country's" approval were passed in the Bush and Obama administrations. Just as Hitler had to be taken down before, now the Bushes and Obamas imposed by the NWO must be brought down with a method so far not found. I think awakening the people would be the start to implement that method. [Quote:]We have just gone through a considerable cataclys ...

Today in History.On this day in 1941, the Boston Red Sox's Ted Williams plays a double-header against the Philadelphia Athletics on the last day of the regular season and gets six hits in eight trips to the plate, to boost his batting average to .406 and become the first player since Bill Terry in 1930 to hit .400. Williams, who spent his entire career with the Sox, played his final game exactly 19 years later, on September 28, 1960, at Boston’s Fenway Park and hit a home run in his last time at bat, for a career total of 521 homeruns. Williams was born on August 30, 1918, in San Diego, and began his major league career with the Red Sox in 1939. 1941 marked Williams' best season. In addition to his .406 batting average--no major league player since him has hit .400--the left fielder led the league with 37 homers, 135 runs and had a slugging average of .735. Also that season, Williams, whose nicknames included "The Splendid Splinter" and "The Thumper," had an on-base percentage of .553, a record that rem ...

Meet Sixty years ago, a barrier was broken for the US military — the first animal ever was promoted to sergeant. But Reckless the horse was no ordinary beast. Serving with valor in Korea, she saved the lives of fellow Marines and was decorated with presidential citations and two Purple Hearts. In this excerpt from the new book, “Sgt. Reckless: America’s War Horse” (Regnery History), writer Robin Hutton tells her story. In the spring of 1954, as the Korean War was winding down, Navy Corpsman Robert “Doc” Rogers decided to buy a Marine a drink. “I heard stories about the guys. Marines would come in drunk off of liberty and they’d go down and say, ‘Let’s go down and let Reckless out.’ And they’d do it — just to see what trouble she’d get into.” Modal Trigger Sgt. Reckless: America’s War Horse by Robin Hutton That Reckless was a horse didn’t really matter. She loved beer — and camaraderie. “Sometimes the guys would be standing around talking and she’d walk right up to u ...

Historic California Posts, Camps, Stations and Airfields Camp Stoneman (Pittsburg Replacement Depot; Pittsburg Replacement and Reclassification Depot) History by LTC (Ret) Danny Johnson "Through these Portals Pass the Best *** Soldiers in the World." This proud inscription met the eye of each soldier as he passed through the entrance to the wharves at Camp Stoneman to embark for shipment overseas. The major Pacific coast World War II staging area under the control of the San Francisco Port of Embarkation was Camp Stoneman located in Pittsburg, CA. Camp Stoneman was the largest troop staging area on the west coast of the United States for units deploying to the Pacific Theater of Operations. Camp Stoneman was once the principal "jumping off point" for more than one million soldiers destined for operations in WW II's Pacific Theater, and again several years later during the Korean War. The idea for Camp Stoneman was born soon after Pearl Harbor in response for the urgent need for a large cantonment area at ...

This speech was delivered by a retired US Navy Capt. at a recent POW/MIA Ceremony REMARKS FOR ATTRIBUTION: CAPTAIN STEVEN F. MOMANO, USN (RET.) Ladies and Gentlemen: Thank you for attending this National Prisoner of War/Missing in Action Day observance. I am honored to address you this evening. The issue of unaccounted for warriors is as old as war itself. Since WWII, the U.S has worked tirelessly to identify, locate, and recover those Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen lost in defense of the Nation. But we have fallen short. According to the Defense Prisoner of War/ Missing Personnel Office, which is part of the Defense Intelligence Agency (the last command to which I was assigned as a career Naval Officer), there are 83,192 individuals still unaccounted for since WWII. 73,528 from WWII itself, 7,881 from the Korean War, 1,641 from the Vietnam War, and another 132 from various Cold War operations, the Iraq War, and other major military conflicts. Last year, at this same time a ...

71 into the fire The film is based on a true story of a group of 71 undertrained and underarmed, outgunned student-soldiers of South Korea during the Korean War, who were mostly killed on August 11, 1950, during the Battle of P'ohang-dong. For 11 hours, they defended P'ohang-dong girls' middle school, a strategic point for safeguarding the Nakdong River, from an attack by overwhelming North Korean forces, the 766th Unit. 100,000 South Korean students volunteered to fight in the war. This film was made as a commemoration of their sacrifices and was released during the 60th anniversary of the Korean War.
WE ARE THE OLD PEOPLE , AND WE ARE PROUD ! " OLD PEOPLE" PRIDE I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only "old people" receiving it. Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called, as you will see. * Old People are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem. Old People remove their caps, cover their hearts, stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them. * Old People remember World War II, Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal ,Normandy, and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam . * If you bump into an Old People on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old People on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old People trust strangers and are courtly to women and treat them with great respect. * Old People hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, m ...

Led by MacArthur, this audacious assault relieved the UN forces trapped in the Pusan perimeter and helped turn the tide of the Korean War. So far, my semester is going smoothly. However, starting tomorrow, I have a wave of exams, projects, and papers during the next two weeks. Like the North Koreans, things are going smoothly until tomorrow, when the tables turn and the stress level increases LOL.

Final full day in DC: At Shmoo's request, we took a bus ride, and spun around many of the sites previously seen, but also saw the MLK Memorial for the first time (impressive), and went to the FDR, Korean War and Vietnam War Veteran's Memorials for the first time on this trip. The iPhone night photography does no justice to the view of the Capitol in the evening, which is spectacular.

4 generations of Berrys: Judge Thomas Baker Berry (1806-1887), Thadeus Clifford Berry (1860-1949). He is holding the hand of my eldest sister Carolyn Rodgers Edelen. The other one is Thadeus' daughter, my grandmother, Eloise Gilmore Berry. That is her on an Army Captain's horse she was friends with. She married David Middleton Edelen, my grandfather. My Berrys owned a farm or land called "Friendship" in "Berry", Charles Co, Maryland on the corner of Hy 228 and Sharpersville Road. God I wish I had more pics of them, and some of the old homeplaces. Judge Thomas B Berry practiced law out of the courthouse in Port Tobacco. There were three Thomas B. Berrys. Him, his son TB Berry Jr born in 1842 and a cousin TB Berry born about 1845. And last but not least my father, Francis Clifford "Buddy" Edelen in his WWII uniform and after losing a leg in the Korean War.

Born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, McGriff started playing piano at the age of five and by his teens had also learned to play vibes, alto sax, drums and upright bass.[2] His first group was as bassist in a piano trio. When he joined the United States Army, McGriff served as an MP during the Korean War and he later became a police officer in Philadelphia for two years.[1] Music kept drawing McGriff's attention away from the police force. His childhood friend, organist Jimmy Smith, had begun earning a substantial reputation in jazz for his Blue Note records (the two played together once in 1967) and McGriff became entranced by the organ sound while Richard "Groove" Holmes played at his sister's wedding. Holmes went on to become McGriff's teacher and friend and they recorded together on two occasions in 1973 for two Groove Merchant records. McGriff bought his first Hammond B-3 organ in 1956, spent six months learning the instrument, then studied at New York's Juilliard School. He also studied privately with M ...

Paul Fuchs has a soft spot in his heart for veterans, especially those like his father who served in the Korean War. So when he heard the ashes of a Korean War vet from Spokane were sitting in storage, unclaimed by her family, it bothered Fuchs. “People should not be sitting on a shelf in a crematorium. They should be given the respect they deserve,” he said. Thanks to Fuchs, Community Cremation, American Legion Post 241 and the state Veterans Affairs Department, Army 1st Lt. Doris Branson will get that respect this week. Her remains will be among more than 50 veterans’ ashes to be interred at the state Veterans Cemetery in Medical Lake Friday afternoon in a special ceremony for the Missing in America Project. As Fuchs discovered, there are scores – perhaps hundreds – of veterans’ ashes among the thousands of unclaimed remains that are stored in funeral homes and county coroner’s offices around the state. “It’s sad when any remains are held in storage. But it’s extra sad when it’s a ...

On 1 February 1951, the 188th was federalized and brought to active duty for the Korean War. A total of 54 officers and 400 airmen were assigned to Long Beach Municipal Airport, California, as part of Air Defense Command. Its mission became the air defense of Southern California.

Captain Francis Williams and First Lieutenant Robert Sands were each credited with three MiG-15 kills. The unit was released from federal active duty in November 1952.

The Chance Vought F4U Corsair was an American fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the Korean War. Demand for the aircraft soon overwhelmed Vought's manufacturing capability, resulting in production by Goodyear and Brewster: Goodyear-built Corsairs were designated FG and Brewster-built aircraft F3A. From the first prototype delivery to the U.S. Navy in 1940, to final delivery in 1953 to the French, 12,571 F4U Corsairs were manufactured by Vought, in 16 separate models, in the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in U.S. history (1942–53). The Corsair was designed as a carrier-based aircraft. However its difficult carrier landing performance rendered the Corsair unsuitable for Navy use until the carrier landing issues were overcome when used by the British Fleet Air Arm. The Corsair thus came to and retained prominence in its area of greatest deployment: land based use by the U.S. Marines.The role of the dominant U.S. carrier based fighter in the second part of ...

Three Presidents What did Presidents Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower have in common? 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 illegal 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. No one in either party has the courage to do this today! Why, you might ask, can't they do this today? Actually the answer is quite simple. Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower were men of honor, not ...

After Bennett visited Ethiopia, he presented a report and the aspiration of the Emperor for education in Ethiopia.

Actor James Garner of "The Rockford Files" dead at 86 LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor James Garner, best known for his prime-time television roles as the wisecracking frontier gambler on "“Maverick" and as an ex-con turned private eye on "“The Rockford Files", has died at age 86, Los Angeles police confirmed early on Sunday.

Celebrity news website TMZ reported earlier that an ambulance crew was sent to Garner's home at about 8 p.m. local time and found him deceased.
