I can believe that.

Dog Tags. With all the remains returned over the years, I don't remember ever reading about recovered Dog Tags except this last 50+ boxes when they mentioned one set. During my time there, if we were caught without them around our neck our Sergeant would "tear us a new one". So I wonder, but will never know, if they are being missed when the bones are recovered, or are being kept by collectors?

my grandfather fought in korea and it makes me sad so few have heard of it. He developed ulcers from the stress driving trucks loaded with munitions and sustained other injuries that later lead to full disability from the VA. He nearly adopted a korean orphan while there before returning home. Grandpa was an arkie and later a californian and idahoan where he passed away. Crazy to think he also was sent clear around the world to fight in korea as a young man around my age!

So when North Korea didn't have their main missiles in the big parade the other day Trump assumed that meant they were being dismantled , but satellite photos show they were on their transporters and parked near the launch pad.

There were several "bad" battles, but I think the Frozen Chosen will go down in history as the "baddest".

October 1951 - This photo is kinda faded, but what would you expect after 63 years ? I've kinda faded during that time too ! That is the Hwachon Reservoir, northeast of Seoul, in the background. Google it. Lots of war stories there. My Battery A, 937 Field Artillery Battalion was in X Corps and our battalion headquarters was in IX Corps. The man in the jeep was our battery messenger and made a two day round trip between battery and headquarters about three ties each week. My enlistment was up and he was taking me to HQ on the first leg of my trip home.


In the mountains above the reservoir were the Bloody Ridge and Heartbreak Ridge battle sites. Lots of bad stuff there.
