They certainly did which reminded Me on Memorial day at which I was Master of Ceremonies and Chairman of the Memorial Day committee in the Town of Millis, MA a young Marine Sergeant was our featured speaker and His father in law, a veteran of the 1st Marines in the frozen Chosin came with Him. Our Grand Marshall for the parade, a Member of My Legion Post 208, and also Chapter 1515 Military Order of the Purple Heart, Millis, MA was also there and the two men had served together at the Chosin Reservoir and hadn't seen each other since Korea. Little did they know they would have that reunion there. One had been in A Company and the other B Company in the same Battalion.

Our town Veteran's Agent, Cynthia Harris, TSgt, USAF and Member of Post 208, American Legion and Post 495, AMVETS, Millis, MA had arranged for the Younger Marine Sergeant, who wore His dress blues to be guest speaker and he had family members including His father in law also a Marine Corp Veteran to come with Him.

Some of what happened in the Korean War was almost unbelievable...we hear a fair amount about WWII and Vietnam, but Korea is almost the forgotten war.

Most of the Korean War vets I've known don't want to talk about it.
