Korean War

Today in Masonic History: 01/20/2015 Today in Masonic History Edwin Eugene (Buzz) Aldrin is born in 1930. Edwin Eugene "Buzz" Aldrin is an American astronaut. Aldrin was born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. He graduated from Montclair High School in 1946 and was offered a full scholarship to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He turned down the scholarship to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point. Buzz, which Aldrin made his legal name in 1988, came from his sister who when she was young pronounced "brother" as "buzzer" and later it was shortened to "Buzz". After graduating from West Point, third in his class, Aldrin was commissioned in the United States Air Force. He would become a fighter pilot and would fly 66 missions during the Korean War. After the war Aldrin would go to many different duty stations. In 1963 Aldrin would receive a degree from MIT. The degree, a Doctor of Science in Astronautics, included his graduation thesis which has as it's dedication the following: "In the ...

Throughout the Korean war (1950-1953), the martial art was tested in actual combat across the valleys of the Korean peninsula. During the war, Korean military leaders, politicians and martial arts promoters were very surprised to learn that from battle to battle, overall victories were won by Tang Soo Do trained soldiers.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two members of the Tuskegee Airmen — the famed all-black squadron that flew in World War Ii — died on the same day. The men, lifelong friends who enlisted together, were 91. Clarence E. Huntley Jr. and Joseph Shambrey died on Jan. 5 in their Los Angeles homes, relatives said Sunday. Huntley and Shambrey enlisted in 1942. They were shipped overseas to Italy in 1944 with the 100th Fighter Squadron of the Army Air Force's 332nd Fighter Group. As mechanics, they kept the combat planes flying. Huntley serviced P-39, P-47 and P-51 aircraft, and as crew chief was responsible for the plane of the squadron commander, Capt. Andrew D. Turner, said Huntley's nephew, Craig Huntly of Inglewood. "The life of his pilot was in his hands, and he took that very seriously," his nephew said. His concern led Turner to nickname him "Mother," Huntly said. In addition to facing danger, the Tuskegee Airmen faced racism. Shambrey's son, Tim Shambrey of Altadena, said his father recalled getting off a train ...
Dean a interesting read.. Oh how nice it would be to believe. This is most interesting and if you only read one e-mail today, this should be it. It is written by a dying black man whom I’d love to shake hands with. It will be interesting to find out who wrote this. Perhaps we will know in time. The words of a dying man have always captured my attention. Right or wrong, they are worth reading. I believe what this dying man has to say has a lot of truth. May not be what some will want to hear, but it is the truth. ~ 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 an 80-year-old black man born in America.

28 December 1950 - Chinese troops cross 38th Parallel, into South Korea. On June 25, 1950, the Korean War began when some 75,000 soldiers from the North Korean People’s Army poured across the 38th parallel, the boundary between the Soviet-backed Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to the north and the pro-Western Republic of Korea to the south. The invasion by the Chinese broadens this war coming close to beginning an other world war. “If we let Korea down,” President Harry Truman (1884-1972) said, “the Soviet[s] will keep right on going and swallow up one [place] after another.” The fight on the Korean peninsula was a symbol of the global struggle between east and west, good and evil. As the North Korean army pushed into Seoul, the South Korean capital, the United States readied its troops for a war against communism itself. At first, the war was a defensive one–a war to get the communists out of South Korea–and it went badly for the Allies. The North Korean army was well-disciplined, . ...

Final goodbye: Roll call of some who died in 2014 BERNARD McGHEE, Associated Press They each turned a moment of violence into a call to action. For James Brady, that moment came when he was shot and wounded by a would-be presidential assassin. For Chung Eun-yong, it was the killings of his two children during the Korean War. Brady took up a personal campaign for increased gun control after surviving a head wound when a man tried unsuccessfully to kill President Ronald Reagan, for whom Brady was press secretary. Chung began a years-long quest for justice, which eventually prompted the U.S. Army to acknowledge having killed civilian refugees at No Gun Ri. Brady and Chung, who died within days of each other in August, are among the notables who left the world in 2014. Others included political figures who catalyzed war and peace and scientists who changed our lives. And we lost beloved entertainers, some remembered for bringing audiences decades of smiles and tears and others who left the stage long before t ...

’S MESSAGE FOR THE FILIPINOS 18 July 2008 Written by Jaeyoun Kim Filipinos always complain about the corruption in the Philippines. Do you really think the corruption is the problem of the Philippines? I do not think so. I strongly believe that the problem is the lack of love for the Philippines. Let me first talk about my country, Korea. It might help you understand my point. After the Korean War, South Korea was one of the poorest countries in the world. Koreans had to start from scratch because entire country was destroyed after the Korean War, and we had no natural resources. Koreans used to talk about the Philippines, for Filipinos were very rich in Asia. We envy Filipinos. Koreans really wanted to be well off like Filipinos. Many Koreans died of famine. My father and brother also died because of famine. Korean government was very corrupt and is still very corrupt beyond your imagination, but Korea was able to develop dramatically because Koreans really did their best for the common good with their ...
[Here's the text of the piece in case you don't feel like clicking through.] I, and I imagine many Korean Americans, were offended when first hearing about the movie The Interview. A “buddy movie” that merely takes advantage of the average American’s lack of interest in Korea — by which I mean North and South — didn’t seem like a great idea. Given that we lost over 36,000 soldiers in the Korean War, and that there has never been a the sort of public soul-searching that we’ve had many times in films over the Vietnam War — think of Platoon, Born of the 4th of July, Full Metal Jacket, Good Morning Vietnam, etc. — I always thought we should move the other way: learn more about what created the present conditions, not turn what is a truly awful, desperate situation in the North into caricature. What was especially offensive, to me, was the poster for the movie in which the Korean written language, Hangul — something all Koreans take immense pride in, a symbol of their resistance to the Japa ...

The Media Is Focusing On the WRONG Senate Torture Report Posted on December 12, 2014 by Washington's Blog The Big Story Torture Everyone Is Missing While the torture report released by the Senate Intelligence Committee is very important, it doesn’t address the big scoop regarding torture.

Senator Levin, commenting on a Armed Services Committee’s report on torture in 2009, explained: The techniques are based on tactics used by Chinese Communists against American soldiers during the Korean War for the purpose of eliciting FALSE confessions for propaganda purposes. Techniques used in SERE training include stripping trainees of their clothing, placing them in stress positions, putting hoods over their heads, subjecting them to face and body slaps, depriving them of sleep, throwing them up against a wall, confining them in a small box, treating them like animals, subjecting them ...

Mickey At War The Bridges At Toko-Ri (1954) The Bridges at Toko-Ri is a film from 1954 that was directed by Mark Robson and was based on the novel by James Michener about a U.S. Navy pilot assigned to bomb a group of heavily defended bridges during the Korean War. The story was made into a motion picture by Paramount Pictures. The Bridges at Toko-Ri closely follows the novel, emphasizing the lives of the pilots and crew in the context of a war that seems remote to all except those who fight in it. The film stars William Holden, Grace Kelly, Fredric March, Mickey Rooney, and Robert Strauss, and it also contains early film roles by Dennis Weaver and Earl Holliman. Michener based his novel on actual missions flown against the railroad bridges at Majon-ni[4] and Samdong-ni, North Korea, during the winter of 1951–52, when he was a news correspondent aboard the aircraft carriers USS Essex and USS Oriskany. Onscreen credits include the following written acknowledgment: "We proudly present this motion picture a ...

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.

Happy Dad! Veteran and Korean War. And many thanks to all veterans out there .
My biggest hero is my dad who served in the Army during the Korean war and next would be my son-in-law Daniel Wheeler who is in the Army serving in Africa. Thanks to all you have and are serving now. May God watch over you and your families.
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.

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 ...

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. Sorry but wrong answer Home Depot because of our ...

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, ...

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.

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 ...

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.
