Thank you for the warm welcome. Every now and then I get bumped off the
list for something which I have no knowledge of having done.....
I've had some interesting correspondence, however, I guess due to my
posting in the Korean War Project Newsletter. The cook for Company M in
Japan emailed me and has the menu for Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinners
with my brother's name, along with all of Company M on it and he is going to
mail me a copy + some pictures of Company M. He also filled me in on some
of the "fun time" of missing bed calls and losing their "soft duty", sharing
history one could only hear from one of the boys who was there.
I was at a Foreign Policy Association dinner last night with a speaker
who spoke on the topic of China and Taiwan, it was interesting to hear him
recount some of the history and how he interjected the Korean War (with not
much import), just sort of mentioned it as in "and then this little event
happen - the Korean War.....
I can't help but continually wonder what is the deeper meaning of the
denial of the Korean War - I know you all have given me reasons here on line
and I've read other reasons and excuses, however my exposure to the depth of
the denial belies something that I think we have not hit upon yet......?
I'm about 1/4 through UNDER FIRE, really enjoying it, I also like that he
doesn't let out the women in the lives of his military characters :)!.
And I probably didn't tell you all here on this list, that I
communicated with Bill Wyrick on his personal email, that I received my
brother's IDPF, much to Mr. Wyrick's amazement. It is full of so much
information that it "blew his mind" so to speak. I made copies and sent
them for himself (21st historian) and someone else who is writing a
history of those early events.
There are topical drawings of where the battle was and where Don's body was
found and recovered, plus much, much more much of it stamped classified.
Anyway, so happy to be back receiving copies of your interesting
exchanges and sometime skirmishes.
