My grandmothers cousin never made it home from Korea, he was MIA. His brothers and sisters did the DNA for file to compare remains to, but nothing has turned up yet. There were rumors that he was a POW, but no proof. One story is that he died fighting on the ground and another story is that his helicopter was shot down (he was not a pilot). It took them three years to presume he was dead. Of course I never met him, but I heard the stories told about him from the family. His memory is still alive.

My father served as a marine in Korea. I know very little of what he experienced there because he would never talk about it. When asked, he would only say that it was just about over by the time he got there. When the war ended in July of 1953, he was only two months past his nineteenth birthday. Whatever he witnessed involved a horrific plane crash, I believe. After returning to the States he never flew in an airplane again. Even when I learned to fly 25 years ago, he wouldn't fly with me. For years he said, "maybe when I'm eighty". He passed away in 2012, just before his 78th birthday.

My father also served in Korea, in the Marine Corps infantry. I believe earlier, in 1950. He also served three tours in Vietnam.
He too never spoke of war, and rarely of himself, but I could tell some great stories about him. He was a great guy, and a better father. I miss him every day.
