Great story. Great man. Every once in a while the government gets it right.
 
2013-04-13 03:14:54 PM
He must be so proud.
 
2013-04-13 03:14:57 PM
He was the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life.

Watched the documentary "Chosin" a few months back, got pretty dusty in my family room.

Not if the Dear Leader has something to say (or eat) first.

Thank God for dead people.

I am so glad that this guy, who was defending us from people who never invaded, finally gets an award.
 
2013-04-13 03:31:09 PM
Hopefully he won't be joined by more heroes from some future Korean war.

I am shocked that North Korea would actually assist in something like this.

Science also determined last week that bras are bad for tits.

Thank you, Science.

How many of those Chinese soldiers actually "volunteered"?

Thanks, at least, for that epic booby thread.

Oh yeah, they were all a bunch of cowards, retreating in the face of the enemy.  Besides, this story is a lie.  Everyone knows that only the United States Marine Core had soldiers at Chosin.  The Army was never there!

:-D

I would be interested on your take on WWII European Theater Veterans.

He got the Congressional Medal of Honor back during the war.  So, yeah, if you had actually read the article you could have prevented yourself from making a post that made you look like you have schitt where your brain should be.  Then again, even if you had read the article it would do nothing about your having schitt for brains.  Oh well, maybe you will be reincarnated as something smarter next time around.  Perhaps a rock.  Or maybe a potato.

Man, that headline was all kinds of wrong.  They didn't stumble across some anonymous remains, posthumously award them with the MoH out of the blue, and then take the time to figure out who the guy was and what he did.  They just finally got his remains back from where he fell.

So as a Korean War vet, you never learned that China did invade?  Those are the people this guy was defending against.

To you who died in war, may you rest in peace. Soldier. Officer. Hero.
 
2013-04-13 04:30:02 PM
Call me paranoid, but with all that we're reading about escalating tensions on the peninsula, I can't shake the feeling that articles like this popping up now are part of some larger effort to normalize war in Korea, at least in the public consciousness. That or we're just paying more attention to Korea in general
 
2013-04-13 04:31:46 PM
But, but, but ...it's only a theory...

/suck it, anti-science assholes, even you can't argue with this.

Another war that had shiat to do with defending our country. Do we just enter these wars for sport?

Had the same thought myself. I think the random number generator for the matrix is malfunctioning.

Why didn't science stop him from dying in the first place or stop the wars that caused it?
 
2013-04-13 05:45:18 PM
Thanks science. You're only 60 years late.

I assume you don't mind if a country gets invaded, as long as it's not the US doing the invading.

Imagine what the current state of consumer electronics would be if North Korea controlled South Korea.

Just another person who participated in a war of aggression, resulting in a repressive, US-backed, dictatorship, against a country that had no desire or ability to invade the US. Let's save the hero tag for real heroes.

The fact that his remains were located by a US/DPRK team is historical irony. He died in a war in which nothing was ultimately decided.

Don Draper seen looking extremely apprehensive while they worked on identifying the remains.

He probably never saw the Korean Peninsula, except possibly on a map.  I would bet money that he served somewhere at some base here in the States or possibly in Germany, and because he served while the war was going on he can now call himself a war vet.
