Comments: As an old Air Force guy I feel a little out of place here. It's been 60 years since I was affiliated with the 8th Fighter Bomber Wing at K-13 near Suwon. Our unit consisted of F-80 Shooting Stars that provided ground support for front line combat operations. My job was to repair structural damage caused by extreme maneuvering and over loading of munitions.
Admin reply: Hi Wayne, thanks for your remembrance. You are exactly right at home here, we all went where they sent us, and did whatever job they gave us, as best as we could. That's what I did. That's what you did. Have a great Christmas, brother.

Comments: I served in Korea 1954-55. I was in KMAG (Korean Military Advisory Group) attached to various So. Korean units. Our main enemy was boredom and, in winter, the cold. I appreciate what our combat vets went through and what they accomplished.

Comments: Forgotten war? Nuts! Forgotten victory more like it. Mission definitely accomplished. The South Korean people should never forget what price the U.S. (and U.N. allies) paid for their freedom. I am the son of Korean war veteran and was born while he was overseas. He was at the MLR 53NOV-54MAR eastern sector north of the Punchbowl. If you were a Marine there at that time, my father was one of those guys firing those 105mm shells that were whistling over your heads. He is alive and well and I love him dearly.
Admin reply: I thought that was our 11th Marines. Whatever, give him this KW vet's best wishes, and many thanks.

Comments: Before I begin reading about the Korean War, I want to read about the Chinese Civil War for some back story, but the local library has next to nothing on the subject matter. Do you happen to know a title or two that you can recommend?
