Re: Anthrax in the Korean War
Comments: I haven't logged in to this site for quite awhile. My father was a
Lt. Colonel. He went over to Korea in October 1963. I was just born. He
returned to us when I was 19months old. It took my dad quite awhile to get to
know me as I would have nothing to do with him. I thought my uncle was my
father. As time went on, my sisters and I would ask about the war and he
would only say that he couldn't talk about it. My father passed away on
October 21, 1998, and as we went through his belongings, we found pictures
that would rip your heart out. Most of them are mustard gas victims. We were
never told why my dad was sent over there. Every time I look at those
pictures I wonder what exactly he did do there. If anyone out there knew of
my dad please e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org His name was Lt. Col. William A.
Norton, originally from Canaseraga, NY. He was born April 3, 1931. Thank you.
And keep up the great work. Susan Norton-Wellington
The above is a copy of a letter posted on a Korean War site and you will see
that the writer makes mention of finding pictures left behind by her father.
Kind of interesting.
