    Trashed the place from the Yalu to Pusan. Millions killed, and the end result was a stalemate.

    North Korea has staggerd from disaster to disaster, including a famine that killed thousands, and may hundreds of thousands.

    South Korea is one of the tigers eating out lunch.

    It is a reminder of who Communists are and what they stand for.

    I found out today that one uncle who was in the Korean War has dementia, and the other uncle who was also in the war doesn't have much longer to live. :(
    Both great men, and my son is actually named after one of them.

    You get to my age, and the time just vanishes behind you.

    I watch Korean media, and it is amazing how fast things are moving along there.

    My mom remembered seeing Civil War Veterans parade on July 4th when she was a young un.
