Semper Fi Rebecca. Bill told you like it was, I too was there. Praise the Lord, he spared some of us to come home. Mr Truman called it a"Police Action", but we Marines still think of it as the "Forgotten War" Bod Bless Bob Wallace.

17 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 14 PrayingPraying


Excellent article, Becky. Thanks for adding a "personal touch".  And I agree, we take for granted what our soldiers have, and are doing for us.  Ron's Dad was in Pelileu and Okinawa, during WWII.  Now deceased, he had some stories to tell, as well. 

I was checking out some pages (about Pearl Harbor) yesterday.  But; you are right, so many people kind of forget the Korean War.  And those young men were just as brave, and deserve our thanks.

It shouldn't be "The Forgotten War", and we should remember, always.

Thank you Bob, and all who fought for us.

God Bless,

I had a Grandpa Bill that was in World War I. He lived with us when I was growing up. Grandpa Bill had some nasty scares (I should have said scars, but "scares" actually my be more fitting) on his legs and always told us they were from a dog that had attacked him, but we all knew it was from the war. I could sit here and type for hours and tell many of stories about Grandpa Bill, as could Mick. But we know our memories belong to us. Thank you, Becky, for sharing your time with Mick's Grandpa Bill. God bless our Grandpa Bill's !

Thank you Becky...and thanks very much to your husband’s grandfather, Bill, for his service. It brought tears to my eyes.

Oh, thank you so much, my Blessed OL family.  I'm thankful I could share such a touching story with all of you.  You are dear to me, and I love you all!

Dan, I think you're right, "scares" seem to be a more appropriate word.


PS - I had tears writing it, David.  Oh how the Lord blesses us with such great service-man!
