The   Korean War began on June 25,1950 when some 75,000 soldiers from North Korean’s people’s Army  poured across the 38 parallel, the boundary between the Soviet backed Democratic People’s republic of Korea to the north and the pro-Western Republic of Korea to the South…

         “TIME’S MAGAZINE” reporting from the following week reveals it took several days for the United States to realize the scope of what happened. It was early Sunday morning in Korea, the middle of Saturday afternoon in Independence, Mo. “TIME” reported “North Korea broadcasted war whoops “as Tanks were now rolling in the terraced hills with newly transplanted rice

It was January 11th, I had just turned seventeen years old and fresh out of high school. My brother Domenic lied about his age and went into the Army at the age of sixteen in 1948. He had just completed a 2 year  tour of the Army overseas in Germany.  He was ready to be discharged when the Korean war broke out.Dom reenlisted and  was immediately sent to Korea,with the 25th wolf infantry division. With in days he was wounded in battle and send to the hospital for  grenade shrapnel he received while following a tank as protection under  fire from the North Korean army. After being a MASH UNIT for two weeks, He spent seven months in a hospitable in Japan recuperating. Eventually he returned home when the war ended in July 1053,  

It started in Canton, Ohio; the date was January 17, 1950.  I had joined the US Air Force, completed my physical exam and shortly after boarded a troop train along with many others. After three days traveling across the US, we arrived at Lakeland Air Force Base in San. Antonio Texas. This would be our home for the next thirteen weeks of Basic Training, where we attended classes to determine what type of duty each individual would be performing, during his service career

       U.S. President Truman was visiting with friends and supporters in his home state when he received a telephone call from Secretary of state Dean Acheson. About a day passed. In Korea, American, civilians were evacuated as the Southern army rallied to hold the line.  The 38th parallel was, as one State Department official admitted, an entirely arbitrary line, chosen by the world war II victors in Potsdam with no consideration for the geographical, economical or political realities of the country.—but it was the boarder, nonetheless and it had been crossed.

The fighting and negotiations between both sides continued from its inception on and off until July 1953 , when  negotiations finally came to an agreement to sign an armistice .Thousands of Americans and Koreans, both civilian and military died for no good reasons.

Now in the year 2017, over sixty seven years later; the younger generation regime of  this North Korean family  has decided to raddle their sabers and flex their muscles. How senseless can this stupid dictator be ,thinking he has the backing of nations who do not want any wars,especially when the world has all weapons aimed at his country. Trump needs to stay strong and continue to stand up against this stupid idiot.
