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).

This African American needs to be heard! A Response to a Ferguson, Mo Internet posting: My Name is William G. Lillas. I wanted to clear up a few black and white questions and answers. The things I state are facts. They are not downloaded from some media website, not propaganda, just observations from a 83 year old black man, born in America: "I was told by my parents (yes, a married man and woman with my last name), that I was *** We lived in *** Town” in a small Texas town, no A/C, grass growing through the floor, no car, no TV. We washed our bodies with lye soap that my mother made, by hand. I thought I was a *** until I graduated high school, went to college, did an enlistment in the Army, and got a job. I am now retired, own my own home, have 6 children by ONE WOMAN, and we all have the same last name. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts, a Master’s Degree in Sociology. My retirement, VA disability from combat in the Korean War (I only have one leg), and part-time pay in a l ...

Interesting. What did Presidents Hoover , Truman, and Eisenhower have in common? This is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around. 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 this today? Actually the answer is quite ...

The Republic Of Korea is a small country on the far eastern edge of Asia. Although it ranks 109th in the world in terms of land area, the country is a center of economic activity, culture, and arts. Korea was colonized by Japan in the early 20th century and later had to endure the Korean War (1950-53), but it has achieved amazing economic growth in a short period, dubbed "the Miracle on the Han River."Today, Korea is an industrial nation standing tall on the world stage. Its semiconductor, automobile, shipbuilding, steel making, and IT industries are on the leading edge in global markets. It hosted the 1988 Seoul Olympics and the 2002 Korea-Japan FIFA World Cup. More recently, Korean dramas, movies, and music are attracting many audiences in Asian countries and beyond, creating what is being called the "Korean Wave." Korea's new standing in the international community was highlighted in 2010 with the nation becoming the first Asian country to chair the G20 and host the G20 Seoul Summit.
never really liked the terminology "Old Farts" but this makes me feel better about it And if you aren't one, I'll bet you know one ! got this from an "Old Fart" friend of mine ! 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 World War Ii, Pearl Harbour , 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 Fart on the sidewalk 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 polite, particularly to wom . ...

After the WWII Memorial, the group walks along the reflecting pool to the Korean War Memorial and the Vietnam War Memorial. For some veterans, visiting these memorials is a lighthearted experience. For others, it is an opportunity to reflect on their experiences and remember lost friends or family members. Sometimes we can squeeze in a stop at the FDR Memorial, as well.
This country, with its citizens' lack of care for each other, has been saying, "Bring on the death panels!" Makes sense, doesn't it? Without decent health care, what happens? We die. But are the citizens really to blame? Or have they been thoroughly propagandized? Propagandized? During the Korean War we called it something else: "brain washing." What's the difference? The result is the same: The North Koreans threatened, "If you don't say what we want you to say, we might kill you." Our government in the past has said, "If you vote for health care, you will die (death panels)," but the fact is that if you can't afford health care, you also will die sooner than you would have otherwise. Propaganda is indeed powerful. And yes, it can buy elections, especially when the electorate has been dumbed down because a decent higher education has been withheld for want of money.
.HELP NEEDED FOR KOREAN VETERAN. I was called by one of our major sponsors who has a Korean War Veteran in need of a ramp on his front porch. His grandson was killed in Iraq in 2006 to boot. He lives in Medina, family and friends stated that they have been having to basically pick this veteran up and carry him up/down the stairs when they leave. If anyone is willing to help and has the ability to build one of these, the family said that would be the best Christmas for this hero. They have been trying a metal ramp, problem is, is that it is short and very slippery. Risk to high and someone will seriously get hurt. If anyone is willing, please let me know, call me, inbox me and I will get back to you ASAP.

THE HAUNTINGS ABOARD USS THE SULLIVANS The USS THE SULLIVANS: DD57, a new Fletcher Class Destroyer, was launched on April 4, 1943, at Bethlehem Steel Corporation, San Francisco CA, just 5 months after The USS Juneau was sunk, killing not only the Sullivan brothers but also thirty other families of brothers serving on this ship as well. This new Fletcher Class Destroyer was named after the Sullivan brothers, at the suggestion of President Roosevelt; due to the Sullivan family's terrible sacrifice of losing all five of their sons. Luckily, the youngest brother, Al, had a wife and son, James, and their sister was also at home, not serving in the Armed Forces. These remnants of the Sullivan family were a small comfort to the grieving parents, who paid such a high price in the loss of their sons. The Armed Forces felt bad about this, as well as smarting from all the bad publicity. All of the branches of our Armed Forces quickly began to enforce the rules about brothers serving together, and began the policy of ...
He Holds All Things Together Hebrews 1:1-4 The Son is the gleaming brightness of God's glory. He is the exact likeness of God's being. He uses his powerful word to hold all things together. Hebrews 1:3a That is an amazing statement. It is put in the present tense, saying that he is the One who is keeping things going right now. Stanford University is the site of a linear accelerator, a mighty two-mile long atom smasher. It is a great lever with which scientists try to pry the lid off the secrets of matter and discover what is in the miniature world of the atom, the neutron, and the proton. Linear Accelerator scientists have discovered a complexity they never dreamed of, and they have found particles that they cannot even invent enough names for. But one thing they are consistently discovering is that there is some strange force that holds everything together. They do not know what to call it, and they do not know how to identify it. They talk about a kind of cosmic glue that holds things together. Isn't i ...

Would you believe that Lee Iacocca is 94 years old and is still KICKIN’ butt? Check out his latest rant. Just as true today as it was when his book first came out. He was, and still is, a brilliant businessman! Often we need to be reminded of Iacocca's words, Remember Lee Iacocca, the man who rescued Chrysler Corporation from its death throes? He's now 94 years old and has a new book , 'Where Have All The Leaders Gone?'. Lee Iacocca Says: "Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the *** is our outrage with this so called president? We should be screaming bloody murder! We've got a gang of tax cheating clueless leftists trying to steer our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even run a ridiculous cash-for-clunkers program without losing $26 billion of the taxpayers' money, much less build a hybrid car.

In honour of Korean War veterans, Canadian Armed Forces personnel, along with Korean officials, gathered today for a scrimmage hockey game that commemorated the Imjin River Cup games played by Canadian soldiers during the Korean War in the winters of 1952 and 1953. On the Imjin River in South Korea, just miles from the front lines, hockey was played on a makeshift rink the soldiers dubbed “Imjin Gardens.” Hockey offered a little piece of normal Canadian life to those who served in a war-torn Korea. One of the most famous matches was the championship game between the 1st Battalion of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry and the 2nd Battalion of the Royal 22e Régiment (the “Van Doos”), held on March 11, 1952. The tradition they began is carried on each winter to this day. anniversaire du Royal 22e Régiment Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Canada Embassy of Canada to Korea 2e Division du Canada / 2nd Canadian Division 3rd Canadian Division / 3e Division du Canada

Today in Marine Corps' history, the 1st Marine Corps Division avoided total annihilation during the Korean War after being surrounded by 10 Chinese Divisions at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, Nov. 27, 1950. The Marines were part of a United Nations force made up of U.S., United Kingdom and South Korean troops. These forces fought a 17-day brutal battle in sub-freezing conditions, inflicting crippling losses against the Chinese to break through the trap and withdraw in good order. No Marines have ever faced worse weather, terrain or odds than those who fought at Chosin Reservoir. Outnumbered 8 to 1 and surrounded by the enemy, Marines fought through 10 Chinese infantry divisions and -40 degree snowstorms to rejoin their allies at sea. "We’ve been looking for the enemy for several days now. We’ve finally found them. We're surrounded. That simplifies our problem ..." —Col Lewis B. “Chesty” Puller, Commander of 1st Marines, 1st Marine Division

Decades after he was killed protecting his unit from the enemy, Medal of Honor recipient Pvt. Miguel A. Vera of the Korean War was laid to rest Nov. 20, 2014 at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. Vera, who was from Puerto Rico, joined the Army when he was 17 years old. He was killed in Chorwon, Korea, Sept. 21, 1952. He received the Medal of Honor, March 18, and Rodriguez accepted the award on his uncle's behalf. Vera was recognized for extraordinary heroism when his unit attempted to retake the right sector of "Old Baldy." The unit came under heavy fire at close range and was forced back. Vera voluntarily stayed behind and was killed as he covered the withdrawal as the troops moved to safety. His Medal of Honor citation says Vera "remained steadfast in his position, directing accurate fire against the hostile positions despite the intense volume of fire which the enemy was concentrating upon him." Vera was buried at Utuado Municipal Cemetery in Puerto Rico. He was moved to Arlington National Cemete ...

Friends, Please help us honor and remember Veteran military man, John Masson, 91, who survived combat in World War Ii, Korea and Vietnam only to be beaten in brutal savage home invasion on his Northern California house, and dies just days out from Veterans Day. John Masson was brutally bashed by a group of thugs who broke into his North Highlands house in the middle of the night on October 28. Masson, who fought in World War Ii, the Korean War and Vietnam, put up a fight when the thieves demanded his car keys. His stepdaughter and caretaker were tied up and blindfolded as part of the invasion, Masson managed to get the bandits out and they fled without his car. However he was severely beaten in the process. The group also made off with jewelry, prescriptions drugs and some cash. His stepdaughter, Akemi Girion, told CBS 13 that Masson tried to fight off the thugs 'because he's a military man'. On behalf of a grateful nation, we salute you Mr. John Masson for your dedication and service to your country. Rem ...
PLEASE SHARE! It's time for me to rant a little today. So my dad went into Home Depot yesterday and asked for his 10% military discount that he always gets at Lowes and they ask him for his military id and when he shows it they ask him if he was in the military for 20 years and he said no but he did serve many years and fought in the Korean war so they denied him his 10% discount since he didn't have 20 years of service. Are you kidding me he served the Korean war which was one of the worst and definitely one of the least prepared wars the government ever sent our troops into with summer gear and below freezing temps. In my opinion rather you serve one year or one war or 20 years and 3 wars you are still a US military vet and you deserve any perk you can get! I went up and spoke to the guy at Home Depot and he came right out and said all these people wanting a 10% discount to get their 1 or 2 dollar discount is crazy and out of hand and a pain in the butt.

On this day in the United States, San Jose State College students demonstrate against the Dow Chemical Company, the maker of napalm. Police were sent in, but the students refused to disperse and several protest leaders were arrested. The next day the students defied California governor Ronald Reagan's warning against further demonstrations and again staged an anti-Dow demonstration. Napalm was an acronym derived from naphthetic and palmic acids, whose salts were used to manufacture the jellied gasoline--napalm--that was used in flame-throwers and bombs. Napalm first came into widespread use during World War Ii, especially in flame throwers used to destroy entrenched Japanese positions in the Pacific war. It was also used extensively in aerial bombs during the Korean War against Chinese and North Korean entrenchments. The use of napalm in the Vietnam War concerned many Americans who considered it an especially cruel and barbaric weapon.

Everyday is Veterans Day in America! I hope that some of you have seen it or watched it last night at 11 pm on NETV. It was called something like "Homecoming, Welcoming Nebraska Veterans". Anyway, it's about korean War Veterans Freedom Flight to Washington DC that my Dad went on. It was really interesting. But why is the Korean War known as "The Forgotten War"? I always wondered myself until it said that the Korean War was the first war based on points. For example what you did and where you were as a soldier would earn you points. My Dad was stationed right by the Front at all times, so that in return built up enough points to be sent home in a year's time. So that meant that individuals came home in small numbers and not in large units. They practically went under the radar in being seen by the Nation, but not be families and local towns. So they were forgotten but not to those who knew them. That went on into the Vietnam War and I feel even today. But a Soldier could spend many tours in Vietn ...

They Knew It They KNEW they were committing war crimes... and LOVED it. WASHINGTON -- A six-year-old memo from within the George W. Bush administration that came to light this week acknowledges that White House-approved interrogation techniques amounted to "war crimes." The memo's release has called attention to what has changed since President Barack Obama took office, but it also raises questions about what hasn't. The Bush White House tried to destroy every copy of the memo, written by then-State Department counselor Philip Zelikow. Zelikow examined tactics like waterboarding -- which simulates drowning -- and concluded that there was no way they were legal, domestically or internationally. “We are unaware of any precedent in World War Ii, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, or any subsequent conflict for authorized, systematic interrogation practices similar to those in question here," Zelikow wrote. The memo has been obtained by George Washington University's National Security Archive and Wired's Spen ...

Soldier Missing from Korean War Accounted For On Nov 10th, the Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) announced that the remains of Army Sgt. Michael J. Barra, 18, of Ithaca, N.Y., missing from the Korean War, have been identified and will be returned to his family for burial with full military honors on Nov. 22, in Ithica, N.Y. In late November 1950, Barra was assigned to Company C, 2nd Engineer Battalion, 2nd Infantry Division (ID), which was deployed north and northeast of Kunu-ri, North Korea, when their defensive line was attacked by Chinese forces, forcing the unit to withdraw to a more defensible position. Before they could disengage, the 2nd ID was forced to fight through a series of Chinese roadblocks, commonly known as “The Gauntlet.” Barra was reported missing in action after the battle. Returning American soldiers who had been held as prisoners of war and released after the Armistice, reported that Barra had been captured Dec. 1, 1950, by Chinese forces and died Feb 20, ...
John Masson survived three wars, but the 91-year-old Air Force veteran was no match for the brutality of the home invasion robbers who broken into home and beat him beyond recognition. The attack occurred on Oct. 28 at Masson's Northern California home. After a week in intensive, the elderly warrior died of his injuries just a few days shy of Veterans Day. Masson served in World War Ii, the Korean War and in Vietnam. More recently, Masson had devoted his life to caring for his disabled stepdaughter. Read KTLA's story here:

Willis and Mary Lederach, who attended Salford Mennonite Church (Harleysville, Pa) decided to support Kim Jong Sub, now known as Byung Dong Kim. [ 411 more words. ]

Veterans Day 11/11/14 I went out to diner by myself this evening. I was a little sad because I didn't really want to eat alone. I went to Outback Steak house on US 19 near Tarpon Springs. It was crowded so I sat at the bar to eat my diner. I was wearing my Navy cap in recognition of Veterans Day and was going to see if they had a special for veterans. They did a blooming onion and free diet coke. I struck up a conversation with the couple sitting next to me. The husband was a Korean War veteran. As we were talking a young male child maybe 8 to 10 yrs old came over tapped me on the shoulder and said thank u for your service. I shook his hand and told him thank you for the acknowledgment then I turn to his mom and gave her the thumbs up sign. The couple and I continued to talk and by now we were talking about our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. As I finished my steak and lobster diner the waitress informed me and the couple sitting next to me that our meals plus desert has already been paid for. The lady wh . ...

To all the Veteran's of present and past, I am so incredibly thankful for all of the sacrifices you have all made to protect and serve our country. It is irrelevant whether or not you believe in war, it is a fact that these men and women are asked to sacrifice not just time, not just money, but with their LIVES to a cause all of us care about but most of us are not brave enough (myself included) to protect, our freedom. It is very rare and highly unlikely that any of us "civilians" will ever be asked to sacrifice our lives for a cause, so I think at the very least we owe it them to personally say "thank you" when you encounter a soldier or veteran. This is my dad, though he immigrated here after WWII he served in the Air Force and fought in the Korean War, he was and continues to be the most patriotic person I have ever met. I'm so proud that I was lucky enough to be born to such a man. This is my brother who learned from a very early age to emulate our father. In kindergarten he decided he would graduate ...
“On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War, then known as “the Great War.” Commemorated as Armistice Day beginning the following year, November 11th became a legal federal holiday in the United States in 1938. In the aftermath of World War Ii and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, a holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars.” Thank you Lewis & Clark County Deputies, Detentions Officers, Reserve Deputies, Search and Rescue Member, our Veterans!!!

Thank you Veterans, including my Dad, Bob Mills, who served in the Korean War.
Wow today I was thinking back at so many different important events that happened in my life so far, or knew people who lived through some important events. I was alive when the American civil war turned 100 years old. (1861-1865) As a youth, I knew people from the First World War, and now we are commemorating it's beginning 100 years ago. (1914-1918) I knew so many people from the Second World War and had so many talks with them. Wow, so few of them left now (1939-1945). Same for the Korean War era, (1950-1953) I knew a few vets and have worked with some from the Vietnam War. Just think, I wanted to volunteer for it. What was I thinking of? I am so glad I missed it by one year. (1955-1975). I remember celebrating Canada 100th birthday. 1967 I remember watching on TV the lunar landing in July of 1969 The fall of the Berlin wall 25 years ago. Being alive to see a new century and a new millennium come by... Wow, I am missing a few events in here, but I am sure you get the point. All in all, it might ...
Hi MD5, Tomorrow I will be taking people to the Remembrance Day Ceremony. It is at 10:45am, so meet in the Commons Block at 10:15am to walk over together. This year is the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War One, and Remembrance Day started as a day to commemorate the Armistice on November 11th, 1918. This Day now commemorates the South African War, WWI, WWII, and the Korean War. In these various wars, over 1,500,00 Canadians have served, and more than 118,000 have died. Tomorrow is not just a day off school, but a day to pause and remember, and to keep memory alive.
Just want to say a big Thank You to some special servicemen in my family. My grandfather, Herbert Nash, fought near the Eastern Front in WWI. My father-in-law, James Hardwick, fought in the South Pacific in WWII. My dad was stateside during the Korean War. My cousin, Harry Clinton McGee, was in the Navy, off the coast of Vietnam, my uncle Roger Nash, was stationed in Anchorage, Alaska in the 60's, & luckily, lived through the terrible earthquake there. Currently, my nephew, Colonel Jamey Duncan is stationed in Honolulu, HI. He has served in Kuwait, Iraq,& South Korea. He has always made us so proud. One of the youngest to make Col. His wife Connie also served in the Army. Thank you all for serving your country.

On the day before Veterans Day, my thoughts are of my cousin, Henry Bailey, who died Nov. 2, 1950, in the battle of Unsan during the Korean War, but also of a college friend, Grant Landis, who committed suicide during Christmas in 1967 in Richland. The last time I saw him he looked depressed. What I didn't know is that he was failing in school and probably would have ended up in the Vietnam War. He was also breaking up with his girlfriend. I always consider him a casualty of the Vietnam War, because of the emotional fear of dying in a distant rice paddy. I salute the efforts of those who served in that war, but I realize that it had profound impacts on how we view the waging of war and the sacrifices made by participants and their families.
To my family members who have honorably served in faithful service to our nation, I say Thank You. From my late Uncles Denver Thomas & Leslie Morris on D-day WWII in the US Army, to my Father- In-Law George Wilkes US Navy WWII and Uncle Pat Engle in post WWII US Army to Uncle Harley Costner at Chosin Reservoir USMC, you fought bravely and honorably and you are not forgotten by your family for your service. My Step Father-In-Law Bill Partenheimer post Korean War to my cousins Ben Taylor, Charles Hornsby US Army, Wayne Allen USAF, and Ed Thomas US Navy and Uncle Sgt Major Retired US Army Joe Ingram during Vietnam you all served honorably under the most difficult circumstances in our nations history.

This is one of my favorite memorials in D.C., because these statues help you feel like you were there, help you to feel the experience of these men. Another part of it are numerous photographs of American Korean War soldiers that are laser etched in the marble facing wall, also a very effective memorial.

Here are some of the cenotaphs in the Victoria area which hold Remembrance Day ceremonies every November 11: 1. The cenotaph on the lawn of the B.C. Legislature (corner of Belleville and Government Streets) was built with funds raised by a local businessman who lost two sons in the First World War. Warren Colclough Pemberton and Frederick Despard Pemberton , both pilots, died in Europe, one on a training flight and the other under enemy fire. Frederick Bernard Pemberton solicited donations from the public to finance the granite memorial topped by an eight-foot-high bronze figure of a soldier thrusting his bayonet. The memorial is now dedicated to the memory of the war dead of both world wars, the Korean War, and peacekeeping missions. 2. The Saanich cenotaph (Saanich Municipal Hall, 770 Vernon Avenue) was originally unveiled in 1957 in Gore Park on the west side of Shelbourne Street. Councillors voted to move it to the front lawn of the municipal hall in 1970 after the construction of a fast food restaur ...

The United States Marine Corps traces its institutional roots to the Continental Marines of the American Revolutionary War, formed by Captain Samuel Nicholas by a resolution of the Second Continental Congress on 10 November 1775, to raise 2 battalions of Marines. That date is regarded and celebrated as the date of the Marine Corps' birthday. At the end of the American Revolution, both the Continental Navy and Continental Marines were disbanded in April 1783. The institution itself would not be resurrected until 11 July 1798. At that time, in preparation for the Quasi-War with France, Congress created the United States Marine Corps. Marines had been enlisted by the War Department as early as August 1797 for service in the new-build frigates authorized by the Congressional "Act to provide a Naval Armament" of 18 March 1794, which specified the numbers of Marines to be recruited for each frigate. The action between Hornet and Penguin, the final engagement between British and American forces during the War of ...
With Veterans Day just "a wake-up" away, I thought it appropriate, especially after my weekend's activities, to share a little history with you. It is a little history of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. On March 4, 1921, the United States Congress approved the burial of an unidentified soldier who fought and died in World War I. He was buried on a Virginia hillside not far from the Potomac River in the Arlington National Cemetery—a symbol of those who have died to protect our freedoms. In respect, soldiers stand guard to protect his tomb. Intriguing … who was this man? What was his story? Why do soldiers stand guard? What makes today’s solider want to be chosen for this duty? How did this tradition come about? The story begins in France on Memorial Day 1921 when wounded Army Sergeant Edward F. Younger was given the task to choose from four caskets of unknown soldiers to receive this honor. He placed a wreath of white roses on the third casket from the left. The casket was sent to the Capitol Rotu . ...

We have a Korean War Era Veteran who is in dire need of a gently used washer, lp gas oven and a elec. dryer. His current appliances are from the 1970's. The washer overflows, the gas oven door does not close properly and when he has to slam it shut the pilot goes out, which is a safety hazard. He does not have a dryer and hangs his clothes about his home to dry. If anyone has any gently used appliances they would like to donate or for a very small fee, please contact our office at 327-2858 and ask for Michelle.

This is probably the most loved man in my family and has been since he married my sister Della over 65 years ago. Bobby Merle Hogue was a member of the U.S. Marine Corps during the Korean War Era. He served his country with the same honor and devotion that he has served his family. I was named after him and have always felt special having his name. All of his nephews worship the ground that he walks on. Bobby and Della have raised 3 wonderful children, Tanis Renard, Trisha Cauble and a son Troy that was killed in the line of duty while serving in the Texas Highway Patrol as a State Trooper. It's my privilege to honor Bobby as a Veteran of this great country and thank him for his service for all of these years.

January 8, 1931) tragically and sadly died in a helicopter crash, when it hit a 200ft utility tower in Sonoma County, California Born in Berlin, a Holocaust survivor and orphaned, fate eventually took him to America, where he stayed in a foster home in The Bronx in New York City. After being taunted as an immigrant and being called a Nazi because of his German accent, he taught himself a perfect New York accent, graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School, changed his name, and was drafted into the United States Army in 1951, serving in the Korean War, where he was awarded both the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. Graham moved from New York to San Francisco in the early 1960s to be closer to his sister, Rita.

I have been informed of a law by the Veteran Affairs Admin that I was totally unaware of and I think is very wrong! My husband who was a veteran of the Korean war passed away in April. The girls and I scattered some of his remains over the garden and the sea as were his wishes and I chose to keep the rest in a nice urn at home to be buried with me when I go. I applied for the veterans marker, which I had assumed was a given for all vets, so I could get it placed on our cemetery lot. However, I received a letter on Fri from the "Department of Veteran Affairs" that by law, he is not eligible for a government furnished headstone and that they are denying my request because I indicated that his remains have not been buried. I can appeal but I never imagined that I would have to!! Is anyone else aware of this law?
The Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star was the first jet fighter used operationally by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF). Designed and built by Lockheed in 1943 and delivered just 143 days from the start of the design process, production models were flying but not ready for service by the end of World War Ii. Designed with straight wings, the type saw extensive combat in Korea with the United States Air Force (USAF) as the F-80. America's first successful turbojet-powered combat aircraft, it helped usher in the "Jet Age" in the USAF, but was outclassed with the appearance of the swept-wing transonic MiG-15 and quickly replaced in the air superiority role by the transonic North American F-86 Sabre. The F-94 Starfire, an all-weather interceptor on the same airframe, also saw Korean war service. The closely related T-33 Shooting Star trainer would remain in service with the U.S. Air Force and Navy until the 1970s and many still serve in a military role or are in private hands.

Due to a bank robbery in December of 1956, Albemarle was thrust into the national spotlight. Leroy Shadrick, from West Virginia, attempted to rob the Home Savings and Loan Association. During the robbery a teller screamed and ran out of the building. Shadrick, now scared as well, ran from the building and dropped his gun in the process. Pete Furr, an off duty fireman who happened to be nearby, picked up the gun and gave chase. He caught Shadrick and held him until police arrived. While being questioned by the authorities, Shadrick revealed that he had been released from prison the previous week. He had been in a motel in Winston-Salem and had tossed a coin on a map of North Carolina to determine where to rob a bank. The coin fell on Albemarle. Shadrick continued by saying that he was desperate, married and that his brother was one of the first casualties in the Korean War. At some point after this, local reporter Fred Morgan was allowed to interview Shadrick. The story that was revealed was quite a surpri ...

The stories I heard from him and from other veterans were pretty amazing…one man was as a B-17 Bombadier, another was in the Battle of Porkchop Hill during the Korean War, while another vet I met, from the Oregon Honor Flight, flew with Jimmy Doolittle! Greatest Generation for sure!! If you ever have the opportunity to participate in your area for Honor Flight I highly recommend it!! Awesome experience and great day!

Here's little tidbit from Sgt Mom's book, Aging with Spirituality and Humor. Here she reminisces about her journey down to Boot Camp after being surprised by the start of Korean War. 25 year old Mom was not expecting that to happen so quickly after signing on the dotted line... "I was told you just had to pass a physical to be accepted, and people dropped out all the time for good reasons, e.g. job changes, sickness, moving, whatever. All true, BUT ... not if you join a week before the start of the Korean War! I was put on a train for Parris Island, and without a shoulder bag. {Mom desperately wanted that nice leather bag you got for joining.} It was a long ride to South Carolina. I kept my spirits up anticipating the warm reception we would receive from the 1st Sergeant. I had heard that she was from Boston. I presumed she would be thrilled to welcome girls from 'home'. What surprises would she have in store for us? I soon found out--she had the grimmest facial expression I had ever seen. It took a while ...

David Gregory, Highway 1125, Bowie, Texas 76230 HORSEFEATHERS © 2998 FM October 17, 2014 Honor Flight As a veteran of WW2 I was selected to go on Honor Flight Fort Worth, Texas. Additionally I was permitted to take my son, Mike Gregory with me as my guardian. We left DFW on an American Airline 747 at 6:45 Tuesday, October 14 and arrived at Dulles International, Washington DC in less than three hours. Mike and I had been to a Meet and Greet meeting in Fort Worth two weeks before. We were given caps, T shirts and red jackets lettered WW2 Veteran with stars and stripes and instructed to wear them on the flight and tours in DC. I had planned to stuff the legs of my Wranglers into the tops of my tall red top boots and wear my black hat to preserve my “I’m from Texas” look. That went out the window. We spent the night at a motel near the airport and their shuttle bus took us to the airport. Arriving a little before any of the others in our party, we were greeted by a crowd of people running to sha ...

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)
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 (honorflight.org) 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?

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?
