PFC Harold W. Jinright, was there at the Chosin Reservoir with the 1st Marine Div.  He would like to complete his ribbons received in the campaign.  He received the Presidential Unit citation and is not sure how it looks.  He does not talk very much about the the battles.  But does say his job was to make snow balls, I Don't think so.  He now has frostbite to his feet and refuses to receive any VA benifits for his injury.  Does any know when the next reunion in the So. Calif. Area please let me know.

My father was in the Marine Corps. He graduated from bootcamp at Parris Island in 1963, then he went to Vietnam. This past October, exactly 40 years after the date of his graduation, his platoon had the honor of visiting Parris Island. About 15 men from his platoon and their wives, me, and one of their Drill Instructors visited. I've always had respect for soldiers from all branches, but this experience made me even more proud of each and every one. This is a great website. It's easy to use, resourceful, and very well done. Thanks.

I have always been proud that my father was a Marine.  But today I learned that I have lived across the street from a true hero.  A man that through the grace of God lived to tell his story to my son.  His story of survival at Chosin Reservoir has changed not only my idea who this man is, but has enlightened me to the many hero's of the Korean War.  Thank You Perk (Merwin Perkins) for having been my friend since I was four years old.

The crew at Five Star Flags in Southern California is publishing Half-staff news daily. Even though the Flag Code states only Governors and Presidents can direct the flag be flown at half-staff, there are many instances where we should recognize and honor fallen heroes.  We will publish half-staff submissions. If you are honoring a fallen hero's passing, and the governor of your state, or the President did NOT issue an executive order directing a half-staff flying of the flag, let us know. 
E-mail your half-staff news to: news@fivestarflags.com. We will publish your submissions. Publication is daily.

Why can't the people of the world understand the concepts of freedom. Look at our way of life. We have mixed races working together, we have mixed religions that don't get along in other countries, living side by side and cause no grief to their neighbors. We help nations in trouble, we were there when the iron curtain went up and stood by Western Germany when times got tough. How many really know what it took to pull off the Berlin air lift. When you look at the Axes of WWII, and after WWII when the alias rebuilt those nations, look at how much better peoples lives were in Japan and Germany. Were the people in Japan and Germany happier before WWII or after WWII. Freedom is a way of life, muslims in the middle east don't understand. Muslims in America understand, I wonder why they don't do what Martin Luther King did, and start a Nation wide peaceful march, for all Muslims to hear. LET FREEDOM RING!!!, Muslims of free nations, tell the world how much happier your lives are because you are free. Let what makes America great, embrace your way of live. Our true greatness here in America is our diversity. Look at what our forefathers wrote, they knew so much... The Constitution, the Bill of Rights... We the People, I regret I have one life to give my country..., Under God..., Our flag was still there.... These are more then words, these are ideals America was built on. No where in these words, does it put one race or religion over another, we are all created equal. God bless America... God bless all who have served in the Armed Forces to protect our way of life. God bless my Dad, George Kaufmann, fought in WWII, died in 1998. rip

Although our database on SEALs/Frogman is complete and 100% accurate, we are sometimes contacted by people who have met somebody who claims to have the DSC, NC, or MOH.

I didn't know the impact of seeing Captain Warren Leroy Anderson's name come up when I typed "Vietnam MIA, Captain Warren L. Anderson." I still have his POW/MIA bracelet which I wore for many years waiting for him to come home. Seeing his name brought back the memory of the sorrow I felt when he didn't get off the plane with the freed POWs. Seeing his virtual name rubbing on the wall brought the same sudden grief I felt when I saw it in person. I'm sad for Col. Anderson and his family and friends, and all of the young men and their families and friends, and me too. I really will always remember Capt. Warren L. Anderson and the day he went missing and his birthday. I pray that everyone who misses him will find peace and comfort during their lives. I will shake his hand and hug him, thank him for the great sacrifice he made for all of us, and tell him how happy I am to finally meet him. Thank you so very much for this website. I am exceedingly grateful to maintain this connection to a man who became a part of my life.

I arrived in NJ on Sept. 12th. I was sent to provide support to the relief effort to families from NJ that had lost loved ones. It seemed at that time that those that lost loved ones from NJ were the forgotten ones. I worked with government and volunteer agencies to radify that. I will never forget Liberty State Park and the activites there. I will never forget the efforts of everyone to help. I feel honored to have been a small part of that effort.
I will never recover, although I will go on. Freedom comes at a high price. We continue to pay the cost.

Wow!! What an outstanding site!
My dad was a US Marine officer in the pacific in WWII, and he was the first one to tell me about the Nisei soldiers in WWII.  His first experience with them was while he was on division duty on Maui when some fights broke out between the marines of the 4th division and some recently returned members of the 100th and 442nd.  The fights were pretty bad, and the marines had to get a quick education on who those  doggies  were.  Although my dad never had very good feelings toward Japan as a result of his wartime experiences, he had tremendous respect and admiration for the Nisei and especially of their role in WWII.  He told me that the Japanese were a very tough and formidable enemy.   We were just really lucky to have those guys (the Nisei) on our side.
WHEN IS HOLLYWOOD GOING TO TELL THIS STORY? They have made movies about just about everything else.  Maybe the real story of the 442nd and the other Japanese-Americans in WWII is too hard to believe.

Thank you for this site which allows me to post remembrance of my first cousin, "Quentin R. Nordin," awarded the Purple Heart in October 1944 after Leyte Gulf. He was aboard the USS Suwannee CVE27 which was struck by a Japanese Kamikaze plane. The damage took place Oct 25-26, 1944. Quentin was listed MIA. His name is on a plaque in the Philippines.  There is nothing here in the United States to honor his memory and recognize the sacrifice he made. I hope this will help keep alive the memory of those Navy men who paid the ultimate price aboard the USS Suwannee CVE27 in WW2.

For the past two years, the VARO, Portland, Or. has celebrated National Medal of Honor recognition day on March 25th.  This year, Col. and Mrs. Joe Jackson drove from their home in Washington to spend the day with the employees of the VA as well as federal employees from other agencies in the building.  Although that's been 4 months ago - employees are still talking about the day they spent with Joe and his wife.  I think Joe may have gotten writers cramps from the many photos and citations he signed.  I want to send a personal thanks to the Jackson's for sharing with us their stories and of themselves.  We hope you can return in the future.

I was born in 1937 and so remember very little of the war other than fear.  In 1968 I first learned about internment camps for Japanese citizens when moving to Lovington, NM.  There I discovered the most amazing fruit and vegetable farm and was told  it was owned by a Japanese family.  Puzzled, I inquired how they came to be there.  I was told there once was an internment camp  in our county and they had been transported from California and virtually imprisoned.  Surprisingly they fell in love with the high plains and chose to stay and make their home in this friendly and beautiful area.  I was proud to be their neighbor and they were a treasured part of our community.  It was hard to believe these events had occurred and I had never been told.  How very sorry I am this took place in the country I love.  I pray that in the future this sort of injustice will never again take place.  God bless these dear loyal people and God bless and forgive America.

Thank you for making a lasting tribute to our veterans and soldiers now passed.  My Uncle (MSgt. USA, Retired) served with the 442 and was a recipient of the the Bronze Star.  He has since passed a few years ago in Tucson, AZ where my father (Colonel USA, Retired) another WWII vet is now residing with my mother.  My father took part in the liberation of some of the death camps and served as court officer in the proceeding war trials.
 
My Uncle (Colonel USA, Retired) is a veteran of Korea (Tank Commander) and now resides in Hawaii along with another Uncle (Colonel USA, Retired) who served several tours in Vietnam (Special Forces).
 
It means a lot to me that these brave souls not be forgotten.  There was a movie (new release) made about the 442.  It was supposed to have been completed but has yet to be released.  It would be good to know when this will come to the big screen.

Hello friends,
My name is Matthew Grant and I am a co-founder of an organization (along with retired Marine General Ray Davis-MOH Korea, Retired Navy pilot Captain Thomas Hudner-MOH Korea) That wants to bring the accurate account of Historical combat events to America's High School Students. We want to stress the importance of the many veteran sacrifices as a way to create an appreciation for American society. We want to give students a feeling for history through the stories of those who created it (the veterans). 
We also want to overcome the vast misconceptions the academic community has fostered concerning the military for nearly 50 years. 
To do this, we need your help. We need all of the available veterans to join our organization (FREE), and spread the word. We need educational resources and funding. Please help us tell your story in YOUR voice. Please visit our website (www.esap.org), and review our mission, beliefs, and all of the other information about our organization. Will you please help us? 
 Thank you,

As an MOH side note of Johnsen family history to honor my Grandfather's act of heroism and his consequent award of the MOH my Grandmother named my father:
Bernadou (last name of the Captain of the) Winslow ( my middle name and the ship my grandfather served on in the war) 
I have the same name as does my son.
My grandmother continued the tradition by naming my Uncle Avernach Worth Bagley (Ensign on the Winslow who my grandfather's best friend and was KIA at the time my grandfather was performing his heroic actions which saved the Winslow)

I came to this site in search of a citation explaining the specifics of how my friend MOH Michael J. Novosel came to earn America's highest military honor. I was in awe with the number of heroes that stand in the same rank as he. I was proud to learn that several MOH recipients were Floridians just like myself. It really doesn't matter where you were born or raised or even what service you served in the heart of a hero beats within and expands beyond all boundaries when the time comes to do that deed. God himself placed that man on earth to perform that action of ultimate sacrifice, most met him soon after to hear  him say "Well done my son, well done", while some went home to be with God some continued to march toward the future because his creator had more for him to do on this earth. Maybe to inspire others to care for their fellow man or to keep the torch shining brightly so in this dark world others could follow and remember that there is great goodness in each of us waiting for us to display it. Medal of Honor recipient or mother of children we all have a responsibility to set a good example and live by high morals and a strong code of ethic. Thank you for developing such a positive place and promoting the value of teaching our little ones that service and sacrifice are worth more than salary and self indulgence. >>>--The--Tender--Warrior---->

My mother was an OR nurse during WWII, and served on Anzio Beach with the 2nd Auxiliary Surgical Group. At one time during the shelling and bombardment of Anzio, a piece of shrapnel tore through her tent and missed her by inches.  She carried that piece of shrapnel in her purse until the day she died, and I now have the honor of carrying it with me.
 She was able to keep in touch with some of her fellow nurses in the 2nd Aux, and that bond was priceless. They all shared the horror of Anzio, and were forever changed by it.  Even many years after Anzio, they remained close friends and got together whenever they could.
 I would love to hear from other nurses from the 2nd Aux,and/or from someone who knew my mother:  Frances (Fran) Lockeman.

I just found this website while searching for information about about the "bronze star" award. My brother-in-law (who passed away on March 25, 2003) married my sister when I was only 4 years old, so to me he was like a brother. Anyway, I know he received a bronze star in the Vietnam war, he was in the Army and I know he served in the war and was stationed in Japan and Australia. My sister married him in 1970 and he never really talked about the war, but he was very young when he enlisted and I think he just kept everything inside him, because he never told anyone what he got the bronze star for. Is there any way we can find out how it achieved this medal? His two daughters are very interested, so they can share the story with their children when they are old enough to understand. His name was Charles Shelby Wagner and he was from Texas. Any help you can give will be appreciated. Thank You For Any Help You Can Give.

I read the article in the Denver Post (12 Mar 2003). I served in the Army from Sep 1976 to Aug 1980.  I can recognize the medal.  while stationed at Fort Sill in 1977 I was on the honor guard at the internment of a recipient.  I was one of the pallbearers and assisted in the folding of the flag at the graveside. I have met several recipients and talked to one at a Veteran's memorial dedication in Springfield Mo.  My uncle, Tom Carson was head of the local V.A. hospital. The Denver Post made one error that I noticed. None of the recipients called themselves "winners" of the medal.  It is not a prize.  Be of good cheer.

Douglas Adams said: It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much - the wheel, New York, wars and so on - whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man - for precisely the same reasons.

Tonight I had the singular privilege of meeting a genuine American hero. I was blessed with the honor of being able to shake the hand of Sgt. Walter D. Ehlers at the California Rifle and Pistol Association banquet in Irvine, CA. Words cannot express the awesome and humbling experience it was to simply rub up next to a truly great man and thank him for his service to our country and to civilization

I am Judith Marie Baldwin.  Charles Baldwin is my great grandfather.  He served in the Navy during the Civil War and was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.  He was an ordinary man, was courageous in war and lived life as a hard working family man after the war working for a living during hard times.  I am proud of him, as I am my grandfather Randolph Baldwin and my father Joseph K. Baldwin, who were all ordinary men working for a living and taking care of their family.

If you would like to get one to send to your son or daughter, I am listing the web site address. God is in control, and this former Marine trusts God to bring her son home safely.

Is there a public domain that allows one to check on a person who proclaims to be an ex Green Beret, officer and Viet Nam Vet. I have an acquaintance whom I suspect is a complete fake and tarnishes the reputation of the people who really did contribute during the Viet Nam Crises. If he is real, fine. If he his a fake, I think he should be called on it.

My name is Erin and I am currently a high school student enrolled in a Vietnam War history elective.  Recently, I have been assigned a research project that looks into the American soldier's experience in post-Vietnam War America.  
    The information I seek deals specifically with the soldier's story following the war.  I am interested in interviewing via-email any Vietnam veteran regarding this topic. 
    Although this project is mandated, I find this topic to be extremely interesting. I am looking forward to understanding a part of American history I find so important. 
    Any information would be helpful.  Thank-you.

I served as Tank Commander in Tank Company, 31st Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division.  My crew and I manned a Marine roadblock the first night we arrive at Hagaru-ri.  I recall hearing several shots from a carbine, during the night.  Later on a Marine apologized to his platoon leader for using more than one bullet to make  kill.  I offered the use of my bow gun, a 30-caliber machine gun, to the marine for use during the night.  Next morning the bow gun was returned, but none of 10 boxes of 30-cal. ammo was returned.  We chauffeured several Marines to Hungnam on the back of my tank. Being good Marines they scrounged all the rations we were carrying.  
     Later on, during another campaign, we were laid up ad and Army Ordnance Depot to have the clutch replaced in the tank.  The ordnance people were in no hurry since the believed out tank was added security.  One afternoon a Marine walked into our tent asking "Where is the crew of 'Terry My Boy'?"  We raised our hands to acknowledge our connection to the tank.  He walked over to us and handed me a bottle of Seagram's VO.  He said it was small thanks for the ride we gave him from Hagaru to the coast.
