Thanks TSgt Joe C. for reminding us that on July 4, 1950 Private Kenneth Shadrick, a 19-year-old infantryman from Skin Fork, West Virginia, became the first American reported killed in the Korean War. Shadrick, a member of a bazooka squad, had just fired the weapon at a Soviet-made tank when he looked up to check his aim and was cut down by enemy machine-gun fire near Sojong, South Korea.
Sad news for the Shadrick family.

TSgt Joe C.: It was a Real Challenge to vote this up. Wow, Private Kenneth Shadrick was only nineteen years old; when he got killed. This is very hard for me.
Rest in Peace, Private Kenneth Shadrick.
GOD will look after you now.
-With My Love for You, Private-
