Veteran's Day

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 11 November 2015 in Transportation.

A thank you to all veterans and the service you have given. After my father passed away, I found a box with hundreds of slides that he took during the Korean War and the Vietnam War. I have been slowly scanning them. This was taken during the Korean War. I do not have any information about this picture, only the date that was on the slide. I wish that I had found them earlier so that we could have gone through them together. I would have liked to have heard some of the stories that were connected to the slides.

Nice tribute. Maybe your father did not want to remember sad and hard episodes of war. I am grateful for his contribution to him to the fight for our freedoms.
