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 ...

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, ...

The Chaplain–Medic massacre was a war crime that took place in the Korean War on July 16, 1950, on a mountain above the village of Tunam, South Korea. Operating at the Kum River during the Battle of Taejon, troops of the US Army's 19th Infantry Regiment were cut off from resupply by a roadblock established by North Korean troops of the NK 3rd Division. The roadblock proved difficult to break, and forced US troops to move through nearby mountains to evacuate their wounded. Thirty unarmed and critically wounded US troops were stranded at the top of a mountain along with a chaplain (Herman G. Felhoelter) and a medic. They were discovered by a North Korean patrol. Though the medic was able to escape, the North Koreans executed Felhoelter as he prayed over the wounded, then killed the rest of them. The massacre was one of several incidents that led US commanders to establish a commission in July to look into war crimes during the war. The same month, the North Korean commanders, concerned about the way thei ...

not true all we had to do was maintain a small strong force as we did after WWII in Germany an after Korean War in North Korea
On this day in 1953, in a forceful speech, President Dwight D. Eisenhower strikes back at critics of his Cold War foreign policy. He insisted that the United States was committed to the worldwide battle against communism and that he would maintain a strong U.S. defense. Just a few months into his presidency, and with the Korean War still raging, Eisenhower staked out his basic approach to foreign policy with this speech. In the weeks prior to Eisenhower's talk, Senator Robert Taft and Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg issued challenges to the president's conduct of foreign policy. Taft argued that if efforts to reach a peace agreement in Korea failed, the United States should withdraw from the United Nations forces and make its own policy for dealing with North Korea. Vandenberg was upset over Eisenhower's proposal to cut $5 billion from the Air Force budget. Without naming either man, Eisenhower responded to both during a speech at the National Junior Chamber of Commerce meeting in Minneapolis. He began by characteri ...
A thought on Bergdahl...yeah I got more. I am sorry his home town can't give him a welcome home...I hope they can at least admit, there is some question as to his status. I would remind you that following the Korean War there were servicemen who decided to remain in North Korea..for whatever reason. They were called turncoats and traitors. Eventually many of them came home...none to warm welcome by anybody other than family and close friends.They had, after all, lost faith with their fellow soldiers and turned their backs on their Country. From all I hear right now I class Bergdahl with them...a turncoat and traitor to his fellow soldiers. I hope the truth will come out...the real truth. If he is to face Court Martial, I hope the case is solid enough to be brought on the basis of fact, not emotion. What happens to him is secondary in my mind to the message this trade sends to our enemy...we can be bought. That is a dangerous message.
Watching a show on AHC called Chosin about the Korean War. Absolutely beautiful, living Marine Corp veterans discussing their battle. One made a statement that made me think about the Korean War differently. He pointed out South Korea now, and it compared to North Korea. It displays what they did was important, and it helped create a Free Society for the people there. Heroes of the Forgotten victory. Not the forgotten war.
Just like in China during the Cultural Revolution, and North Korea at anytime since start of Korean War.
MUMS KILL CHILDREN TO SURVIVE INSIDE North Korean PRISONS For 28 years, Kim Hye Sook languished inside North Korea's oldest concentration camp. She saw daily executions, mass starvation, and mothers killing their children to survive. Kim is perhaps the longest serving prisoner ever to escape from North Korea. "I went to the prison camp when I was 13 years old and I got out when I was 41," she said. One morning in 1975 North Korean agents burst into her home and dragged away all the members of her family. She recalled "Some were taken to the mountains; others put in labour camps all because my grandfather escaped to South Korea during the Korean War." Kim and some of her family were sent to Re-Education Centre No.18, also known as "Bukchang." "I lost seven members of my family, including my grandmother, mother, brother, and my husband," Kim said. Today she wears dark glasses to conceal her identity because she still has two sisters and a brother in the camp. Bukchang holds some 50,000 prisoners. It's one o ...
Earlier today I lost my Father-in-Law at his home to cancer. He is the definition of a Hero. He served in the United States Army during the Korean War was shot advancing into North Korea. They were overrun by the North Koreans and they shot whoever couldn't walk to the prison camp. He was wounded and helped by one of the other men in his unit to get to the camp. He was a POW/MIA for five years. He was my friend and I am going to miss him very much.
Learn Our History Today: On April 11, 1951, during the Korean War, President Harry Truman relieved General Douglas Macarthur of overall command of U.S. forces in the conflict. Truman and MacArthur had had problems with one another going back to the War’s beginning. MacArthur constantly pushed for more aggressive tactics, such as invading North Korea and squashing communist forces. Truman agreed to an invasion of North Korea, but with the stipulation that MacArthur not get too close to Communist China, which shared a northern border with Korea and might take U.S. forces in their backyard as a hostile act. MacArthur assured Truman that the Chinese would never invade and continued pushing toward the Chinese border at full throttle, halting near the Yalu River in winter 1950. At this point, Truman’s worst fears came true. Hundreds of thousands of Chinese troops charged American lines and within weeks had forced the U.S. back into South Korea. Desperate to strike back at the Chinese, MacArthur pleaded with ...
My late grandfather Charles E. Huitt was not only a hero and a hard worker, but he was also a dearly beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle, etc. As a boy, his family lied about his birth-date so that he could begin working in the mills that littered the upstate of South Carolina, even as a boy of 14. As a soldier in the the Korean War, he was introduced to horrors and hardships that are unfit for any human psyche to experience. The war took from him his hearing, and as it always tends to do with any young man sent to fight and/or die in war, it robbed him of its innocence and imprinted itself forever into his mind in the form of PTSD. However, unlike 36,516 other young Americans, my Papa Huitt came home, found a wonderful woman, Lillie Cornelia Huitt (née Orr), that he cherished, adored, and devoted himself to wholly for the rest of his life. Together they built a family, with a son, James "Runt" Huitt, and thirteen years later, Charlene Huitt Ferguson. When he returned from the now-world- ...

Finding happiness in Korea Whenever news from the North makes headlines, the world is hit by a certain nervousness. Especially for those with an interest in Korea, they contact friends and acquaintances via landline or the Internet each time North Korea news breaks, with worries about peace on the Korean Peninsula. Modern day South Koreans, however, are unexpectedly indifferent about these exchanges. Their somewhat uneager response is due not only to frequent reoccurrences. Also, time has taken away many of those with vivid memories of the Korean War (1950-1953). The younger generation has grown up amid material abundance and is busy living in the present. When asked about reunification, these young people may show no interest in the subject, or even worry about a possible negative aftermath. In an era when over 25,000 North Korean defectors live amid the urban hustle of South Korea, finding common ground between North and South can still be a difficult task. Especially for the defectors, adjusting to Kor ...
On July 27, 1950, Eighth Army commander Walton Walker gave a "stand or die" order to his troops in what would be a six week struggle against North Koreans known as the Battle of Pusan Perimeter during the Korean War. U.S and UN Coalition forces had been backed into a corner controlling just 10 percent of the Korean Peninsula. A loss of the Pusan Perimeter to North Korea could have meant the end for opposing forces. The success of the Eighth Army came from a combination of ground fighting,close air strikes and off shore naval support that allowed the U.S. forces to inflict more damage on the North Koreans than they could handle. Holding the Pusan Perimeter turned the tide in favor of the South Koreans and their allies. Had the defense at the Pusan Perimeter failed, a democratic and free South Korea may have never existed. The sacrifices of the Eighth Army for victory would be large totaling 4,280 killed in action, 12,377 wounded, 2,107 missing and 401 confirmed captured. It is in respect to Americans such ...
Ohio Church leader Lamson and Roods sided with a Japanese rice farmer from Eastern Japan in a UC divorce with a decendent of a Korean War victim whose mother is from North Korea. Apparently the farmers reason for divorce was to inherit his farm asset from his father. The church leaders approved of him as well as his slandering of the woman in the breakup and after the divorce the farmers land got contaminated with radiation. Now the leaders claim that they were on the correct side of the tsunami flood judgement..but the woman...me had been suffering for 40 years in loneliness to get the blessing! In fact leaders these days are using the korean and WWII victims as an excuse to gain assets and as a pretext for war unrelated to the victims themselves. In fact Blessed Couples think secularly half the time as their faith wavers so they side with their national interests half the time. Actually I cannot support any leader who uses my family as a way to get rich. See my full blog at

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

North Korea Fires Missiles After Recent Easing of Tensions North Korea fired four short-range missiles, the first confirmed launch in more than nine months, disrupting a period of easing tensions with the South. The missiles were fired into the sea from North Korea’s east coast shortly before 6 p.m. local time yesterday, and had a range of at least 200 kilometers (124 miles), South Korea’s Defense Ministry said. The launches came just two days after the countries wrapped up the first reunions in more than three years of families divided by the 1950-1953 Korean War, which ended without a Peace Treaty. Still, the North has denounced the U.S.-South Korean drills that began this week as a rehearsal for war, and the annual exercises previously prompted angry reactions from Kim Jong Un’s regime. “North Korea is keeping its head up in the face of the South Korean-U.S. drills,” Sohn Yong Woo, a professor of North Korean studies at the Graduate School of National Defense Strategy of Hannam University in ...
N. Korea Brother Yells At Sister For Gifts Seoul The Korea Times Online in English 25 Feb 14 By Cho Hyun-eui Hundreds of South Koreans had private reunions with North Korean families on the second of three days of family reunions last Monday. The South and North Koreans exchanged gifts with each other in their hotel rooms. South Koreans prepared clothing, medicine, and snacks by themselves whereas North Koreans gave the gift prepared by the North Korea government, according to Hankook Ilbo, Monday. Kim Kyung-sook, an 81-year-old from South Korea was separated from her older brother during the Korean War. Kim felt like she was dreaming when she heard her missing brother was looking for her. Kim finally met her brother and brought an armful of gifts, including clothing and daily necessities for him. However, Kim's brother yelled at her, saying "Even though you are well-off, this is too extravagant!" Kim was so surprised that she couldn’t speak but shed her tears endlessly. She felt the reality of the divi ...
US-S Korea kick off annual military drills US Army expected to scale back its annual exercise with South Korea, due to conciliatory steps by Pyongyang. South Korea kicked off its annual joint military exercises with the United States, despite vocal opposition from North Korea. Monday's start of this year's drills overlaps with the first reunion of families divided by the Korean War in three years, an event that has raised hopes of greater North-South cooperation, AFP news agency reports. Pyongyang had initially insisted that the joint exercises be postponed until after the reunion finishes on Tuesday, but Seoul refused and in a rare concession, the North allowed the family gathering to go ahead as scheduled. The annual "Key Resolve" and "Foal Eagle" drills, routinely condemned by North Korea as rehearsals for invasion, will last until April 18 and involve a combined total of 12,700 US troops and many more from South Korea. "Key Resolve" lasts just over a week and is a largely computer-simulated exercise, ...

South Koreans started traveling to North Korea to meet relatives that over 60 years separating due the Korean War
Tearful reunions in North Korea for families torn apart by the 1950-53 Korean War.
Families torn apart for more than 60 years -- separated by the Korean War -- began to reunite at a mountain resort in North Korea Thursday.
More than 100 South Koreans have crossed into North Korea to meet with relatives they have not seen since the 1950s Korean War. Pyongyang has not allowed the emotional reunions since 2010 and analysts have said the isolated nation uses them for political purposes.
Unfailing Love By Paul Chappell Thursday, Feb 20, 2014 “Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.” John 13:1 There was a very unusual military funeral in California in December of 2013. Sgt. First Class Joseph Gantt, who fought in both World War II and the Korean War, was laid to rest. He had been captured in Korea in 1950 and died the following year. But his body was not returned for many years, and his death was never confirmed by the North Koreans. His wife, Clara, waited for decades for her husband to come back. She regularly went to meetings with government officials seeking information about what had happened. Clara even bought a house and had it professionally landscaped so all Joseph would have to do when he came home was go fishing. She was ninety-four years old when his remains were finally brought home for a military funeral wi ...

I'll be speaking to Al Jazeera TV at 7pm tonight about the releasing of Report on Human Rights in North Korea by the UN HRC COI in Geneva. Last week, while answering Justice Kirby's question regarding the best way to reach out to the DPRK's leadership, Christopher Richardson and I recommend preambling the COI's report with allusions to the deep historical and political roots of North Korean behaviour: i.e. the legacy of colonialism, wartime brutality, a Cold War mentality, and mistrust of the international community. These problems are characteristic of all Northeast Asia, but Korea, at its pivotal point, has harboured the most extreme Human Rights violations as a result. This problem cannot be resolved unilaterally, nor swiftly, without transforming the political climate of the whole region: that is to say, ending the Korean War, diplomatically recognising the DPRK, lifting economic sanctions against it, and improving all forms of exchange with the North. In a perpetual and assiduously cultivated 'state ...

Did you know that during the Korean War, the US Air Force dropped more than 600,000 tons of bombs on North Korea?
Most people I've spoken to abhor North Korea. Some people are even scared that North Korea might unleash a nuclear weapon on us. As deserving as we are, that will never happen. Often people make fun of the country, its political leader and it's people, known for living in a backward, lackluster and depressed economy. Global sanctions and embargoes for decades notwithstanding. I think Dennis Rodman reads books. North Korea has an untold and virtually unwritten history because the victors write the history books. Imagine, most of us have no clue as to what happened during the Korean War but the story is the same the world over. North Korea is no different than Iraq, Libya, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia and Syria. We terrorized the nation into submission and bombed them back to the stone age. When the Americans defeated Japan in 1945 they occupied Korea and they massacred 60,000 people on Jeju Island. They massacred millions more. Great dams in North Korea were bombed to unleash deadly tsunami's, anti-p ...

A note from Andy MacDougall: Don't miss Black History Month movie night at the Newman Center (90 Broad St.), 7 p.m., Saturday March 1st (a day late per scheduling difficulty). The program will mark key anniversaries in the Black American Experience, including 20 years since the passing of historic band leader and jazz singer Cab Calloway, 40 years since the inception of The Jeffersons (a network television milestone), and 65 years since the assignment of Jessie L. Brown, the U.S. Navy's first black aviator, to Fighter Squadron 32 with which he flew and sadly perished during the Korean War (after which the Navy christened the U.S.S. Jessie L.

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

PROPHECY UPDATE WATCHING FOR THE SIGNS OF THE COMING CHRIST FRIDAY, JANUARY 3, 2014 War Preparations Around The World ('Wars And Rumors Of War') As usual, today's news has a specific, dominant theme: War's Darkening Shadows: Japan Girds For A Showdown With China The shadows of war hang more menacingly over Northeast Asia at the opening of a brave new year than they have at any time since, well, since the last time the region was edging into armed conflict. That might be since the Korean mini-crisis of nearly a year ago when North Korea was emitting a torrent of threats. Or it could be since the sinking of the Cheonan or any number of standoffs since the Korean War. Only this time the shadows are lengthening for reasons that don’t have a lot to do with North or South Korea. The latest cause for hand-wringing and teeth-gnashing was Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s decision, in full knowledge of the sentiments of Koreans and Chinese, to visit the Yasukuni Shrine memorializing Japan’s millions of war d ...
False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one's own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time.” Spanish American War 1898 It was an excuse to take away Philippines, Guam and Cuba from the Spanish World War II 1941 Neutral America taunted the Japanese long before Pearl Harbor and American officials were aware of the impending attack on Pearl well in advance of the attack.

I believe that there is no plausible link between the recent purges and North Korean military activity. The purge of Jang Sung Taek was purely a domestic matter, where a growing family brawl within the Kim's clan was skilfully used by the young Marshal Kim Jong Un to discipline the elites and to reiterate the economic and political course chosen sixty years ago by his grandfather, Kim Il Sung. The international message associated with the liquidation of uncle Jang was that Kim Jong Un assumes the full control of state affairs and it is him who should be negotiated with (not any extended family member). If Park Geun Hye or Barack Obama want to resume dialogue with North Korea they are only one call away from the progress. Still, President Park and Secretary John Kerry continue to be more ideological than pragmatic. They talk about provocations and denuclearisation but refuse to address the core issue – the Korean War which has not ended yet. The first major purge in North Korea was also associated with t ...

But Thursday's reports from the Washington Post and the AP claim that Levinson had been on a CIA mission to dig up information.

The tradition of burning the colors stems from the events that took place during the Battle of Kunu-Ri.

The American Pastor held in Iran for practicing Christianity, we just lost our one best shot to get him back, Obama and Kerry are *** on this. The 85 year old Korean War veteran held in North Korea, seems like Obama is doing nothing to help him either.

SPY ARREST - South Korean Unification Ministry officially demanded North Korea provide personal details of the "arrested spy". North's official news agency said it had arrested a South Korean spy and was investigating him on charges of espionage in a rare report of the capture of a secret agent by either of the rivals. South Korea's National Intelligence Service said the North's claim was "groundless" soon after the statement came out. The ministry said this was the first time North Korea officially announced the arrest of a South Korean intelligence agent through state media. Public announcement of the arrests of secret agents by either the South or the North have become rare despite the consistently high level of espionage activities conducted by the rivals since the end of the Korean War.

Filipinos are brave. "Give me ten thousand Filipinos and I will conquer the world" Gen Douglas Mc Arthur once said. This was during the Korean War when the United Nations were being attacked by the Chinese Communists and North Korea. But the Philippines has only 1400 Filipino troops. They faced 40,000 Chinese soldiers with only rifles,machine guns,mortars and howitzers to stop the enemy.They also have 2 light tanks,a few bazookas which didn't work and not of all them had winter clothing.The communist attack was so overwhelming that the British and the Puerto Ricans retreated but the Filipinos stayed and kept fighting.They were greatly outnumbered 40 to 1 so the clerks,drivers and cooks joined the fight.They held the line,preventing the Chinese to take more land from South Korea.The Chinese army lost 7000 troops while the Filipinos lost 24 with 26 more wounded.
On this day october 9th, several events of significant ramifications were recorded. This day in history in 1934: a Macedonian disident group sponsored by Hungary, assassinated King Alexander of Yugoslavia and France's foreign minister. This single act of aggression, almost led to war between Yugoslavia and Hungary. The crisis, was however resolved following the intervention of the League of Nations. On this day in 1940, Winston Churchill, was elected leader of the Conservative Party. Subsequently, Churchill replaced Neville Chamberlain as prime minister of Grate Britain.Churchill, led Grate Britain through World War 2. October 9 1950 the counterattack on North Korean troops by allied forces began, with the 1st Cavalry Division of the United Nations intervention force, attacking from the south. This intervention, was mainly spearheaded by the United States. The Korean War as it would later be called, raged on until the signing of an armistice i.e ceasefire by the two Koreas in 1953.
