On tonight's Science Channel TV program, "What on Earth", they talked about the North Korean "Peace Village" on the DMZ. Noting new except that they have now cranked up their huge, loud, speaker systems directed at the South Korea side and are broadcasting 24/7. Interesting that it's happening at this particular time

So Kim is openly continuing his missile and nuke research as though he is daring anyone to say/do anything about it. I think China should be more concerned about that than the US. As close as the NK test site is to China, a nuke or post launch missile accident will greatly affect China.

Default Korea War

On June 25, 1950, the Korean War caused when any 75,000 soldiers from the North Korean People's Army poured beyond the 38th parallel, the border between the Soviet-backed Democratic People's Republic of Korea to the north and the pro-Western Republic of Korea to the south.

Yep, thanks. I didn't get there until the following February. Things were "interesting". There are still over 7,000 KIA, MIA, and POW of our troops still missing, or unidentified.

Last week I received a wonderful letter from a high school junior who lives here in Arkansas and is a first generation Korean-American. Her parents were from Seoul and came to the U.S. in the 1990s. It appears she has a mailing list of Korea War Vets and is sending the letter to all of us thanking and appreciating us for our effort in saving her country. There are also other details in the letter. I think it is legit because she didn't ask for anything; didn't even ask for a reply. Anyway, I truly appreciate the thoughts and extra effort of this young lady.

O.K., I checked her out and she is legit so I sent her a letter thanking her for thanking us. I did not expect a reply, but got one. It re-emphasized what she wrote in the original letter. It's good to know someone remembers and appreciates what we did. Oh well, life goes on.

Currently one can view via the PBS app (or the PBS website): "Korea: The Never Ending War".

My father was a B26 pilot in the Korean War. All the attention in the air war goes to the Sabre pilots but he had a thankless job with over 50 missions past the "bomb line" into the north. Many of these MIA's are B26 crews, they flew interdiction missions solo. When their planes went down, no one new or would ever know what happened. They simply never returned.

This thread would be so much better without the modern political BS comments. Start a thread in the P&C forum if you want to get into that crap.

Hey, to each his own. To me, who started and maintain this Thread, and spent many months wading those rice paddies and climbing those mountains in 1951, todays U.S. and N.K. politics are almost as critical as the combat itself. Oh well


Oh, those B26 bomb and battle ship 16 inch projectile craters made great "field expedient" shelters when needed. Thanks to your Dad and other bomber crews. Many of those air crew members were captured and sent to China, on their way to Russia.
