My husband Jolly (given name) was in at the very end in 1953 and got out after 13 months a bit over 19 years of age. He could have had a purple heart, but it would have been two more weeks in Korea, and he said a resounding no to that and 10% disability because of his artificial kneecap. I miss him, but he prepared me well for widowhood. Now it is off to see what you have written as I must admit that I have not yet read any of your novels, but that is about to change. Thank you for responding. I am sure that I will enjoy this site.
Well, my age is the same as yours, so that is one thing we have in common. I, too, came upon this site somewhat by accident. My late husband was a veteran of the Korean Conflict. Was that "your war" as well?
