TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE TEXAS LONE STAR CHAPTER- KOREAN WAR VETERANS

Since no articles appeared in any of the newspapers two days ago on July 27, 2016, I thought I would post this story from last year, actually March 2015. AND you wonder why  we Korean War Veterans call it the "forgotten war" We did what our country asked us to do. Many died in the service of our country. We came home to silence... people asked us where we had been. War? That was no war, the VFW said as they refused to accept Korean War Veterans into their organization. (policy changed later but the hurt remains with many of us) We have not forgotten...at this point, I have to say 63 years later, I don't care if others do forget, except I do care that the fallen do not have the same respect for their sacrifice that other wars have received. RIP my brothers, we remember...
