Ed, this is off topic,
but is there some way you can make your font larger and darker? I'm
going blind reading your posts!! :)
I was in Bethesday, Maryland over the weekend and you will be happy to
know they have more books in the Barnes Noble on the Korean War there then
they do in Harrisburg, PA, however, they have them under the WWII heading -
so still had to hunt them down.
My friend suggested that I could go all over the entire U.S. B & N's
and put Korean War books out on the 'history' tables out front like I did
in Camp Hill (across the river from Harrisburg!)
'Going to a DAR luncheon at the Carlisle War College on Saturday and hope
to be able to see the Korean War collection/Museum -- 20 minutes away and
just discovered they have a Korean War Collection!!
Larger Fonts, please....

Cookie et al,
One item I haven't seen mentioned is at the time the 38th Parallel (border)
was poorly marked, especially in the mountains, so some, perhaps many, of
these "cross border raids" were actually the result of faulty
land-navigation that turned into fire fights when the two sides met, with
both sides claiming the other side were "raiders."
