    Well it's 2020 and a big sh!t storm of a year!! I've been meaning to post something like for years to document your life/service and have always put it off....well no more! 2020 has been a year of anniversaries.....75 years for Pearl, for D-Day for WWII victory etc...! Then 70 years for Korea etc..... I could go on and on...but 70 years ago the battles at the Chosin Reservoir and the Kunu-Ri Gauntlet began!

    Somewhere in the time span of days that I 'am typing the 9th Infantry Regiment of the 2nd Infantry is retreating south in Korea, Much of this division will be destroyed! Somewhere, somehow your lost! I never knew you, I've never met you but strangely your one of my greatest hero's and I fight every day to find more!

    Just a start.....gonna build on this!

    Well I've been on this site for years but never expected this!! I get the ribbing that goes on elsewhere on here Opana & I respect you as a researcher but SERIOUSLY!!!!!!! I was just trying to start a thread to share/memorialize a great uncle that is MIA from the Korean War...a WWII Veteran!!! This I hope was a MISTAKE!!!!! But Damn if it was a joke or smart @ss comment its gone to far! A simple like or read and move on would've been better!!!! I didn't add more because I was getting tired and wanted to get some info correct before posting more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Any Admin available please delete this thread!!!!!!!!!!!
