THanks for responding. I don't know if I told you what I'm doing already - looking for stories and subjects for a Korean War documentary - but I'd be interested in hearing more about your experiences. Perhaps you have written about the subject already? If not, maybe you could outline, chronologically, your experiences. Where were you from? How old were you when you enlisted? (were you in the Marines before the KW broke out? or joined because?). Your unit, reg., Div.? What did you think about the war (or what you were about to get yourself into) before you left the States? What did they tell you and did it adequately prepare you for the realities of Korea? Landed in Japan - what was the mood like there (unless you were already at the Pusan Perimeter with the 5th)? Did you know what was going to happen? Describe the trip over and landing at Inchon...
Well, lot's of questions to start. Don't know if you want to answer them all. Let me know what you think...
