KOREAN WAR

Are you my family? I need to know who you are and where you are. Because one day I will be going home and before I can do so, I will have to be identified, and as you know I have been gone for a very long time and the only way I can be identified is going to be through DNA. So in order for them to know I am me, they will need to have some of my relatives to supply their DNA in order to have a match. Then I can go home where I belong with my family. My name will be among a list of names that Aline has added and if you recognize me you can follow Aline’s instructions on who to contact. I am very grateful for another Veteran of the Korean War Mister Harold Davis who has been working on trying to locate our relatives ,it is because of him that Aline has created this webpage in order to help try and bring me and my buddies home one day. She also has other people trying to find you .So if you do know me ,if you are related or if you know some of my relatives, please let Aline or Mister David know? In the meantime I will wait a while longer.

POEM

In the words of the five star general as he spoke to the USA
"Old soldiers never die they just fade away"
But speak not of the Korean Veteran as you hear him coming through
in remembrance of his comrades with his tears of gratitude
In the year of Nineteen Fifty the communist had a plan
to capture South Korea
but the free world made their stand
Yes John Q there was Korea
but not like the wars before
for this action came
with a police action name
when the bear had knocked on the door
Many countries remembered their fallen with respect of honor due
but in thease states such little relates and our historys words were few
For in the hallway of the high school
mahogany plaques stand out
of the names engraved
and the sacrifice made
to remind us what war is about
There are names there of the first war
the very first bugle call
and for the Taps that blew in world war two
and of the boys from Nam on the wall
But the Korean War forgotten
Fifty Four Thousand lost their place
and the Eight Thousand more are MIAs
of them theres such little trace
So hear us Five Star General
we heed to the words you say
that Old Soldiers never die
but why must they fade away
By Frank G. Gross
Composed 25 July 1972.
