As a high school graduate in 1950, my father learned of the conflict in Korea & knew it was his duty to serve. His father was career Navy but he decided to enlist in the Marine Corps, playing the saxophone in the USMC band. After Boot Camp, he was sent to the Kansas Line at Imjin River. He was assigned to the machine gun in the Weapons Company. They were shelled constantly; he had several narrow escapes. Back home, he went to college, married, had 6 children, a successful career, and now enjoys retirement & 25 grandchildren. He is a man of tremendous character, knowledge & wisdom.
