OK--first things first--let's determin both for the purposes of this list, and
for general purposes, just what constitutes a Korean War Vet? A Korean-Era
Vet, etc. Both dates, locations, etc.
I joined the Marine Corps in May 1952--did not go to Korea--that age 17 thing,

until 1972 as a Postal clerk, MOS 0161.
