Epic Story of Heroism Friendship and SacrificeMy thoughts on this book are rather long because of the emotions that it has stirred in me Pride of the fighting men grief for their losses and happiness for the good that came from itThis is a true story about men fighting in the Korean War the forgotten war It s called that because in 1950 WWII had just ended and no one wanted another war Americans were tired of losing loved ones men coming home missing eyes and limbs scarred with battle fatigue It came about because of the rise of communism and the influence of Stalin on Mao on the North Koreans North Korea backed by Communist China and Russia was invading South Korea and General MacArthur was told by President Truman to put a stop to the NK advance We may be back in North Korea very soon fighting once again for the same reasonsIt began in June 1950 and the initial push by the American Army was overrun and practically chased out of the country by Soviet aircraft and Chinese

they were all Naval aviators If anyone has a probllem with that they could pack their bags and go home now To me that was a sign of a great leader and the character of their commanding officerThe air wing from uonset Point was assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Leyte Their first deployment of Marines and Sailors was to the Mediterranean Sea with the 6th fleet One of their first stops was Cannes Fr on the French Riveria Not bad duty All the unmarried men from the ahip set out to fall in love There was a surprise for some of the Marines who were scanning the beach to see women in the newest bathing suit craze the bikini It was the fashion rage in France at the time One of the Marines spotted someone he recgnized Elizbeth Taylor catching rays on the beach She was suddenly surrounded by US Marines Elizabth was gracios and flattered and talked away with these brave me Elizabeth was only nineteen and already famous from the movie National Velvet She had married Nicky Hilton and was on a vacation He was already cheating on her and they would divorce in 6 months She met of the crew while she was in Cannes and even visited the USS Leyte for a tourJohn Red Parkinson who said the initial hello to Ms Taylor in Cannes and Charlie Kline were Marine infantry on their first tour and they became friends for life Jesse and Tom didn t know these Marines but they would provide air support to them and save their lives at the Chosin Reservoir North Korea Lieutenant Rober Reem USMC Red and Charlie s suad leader would save lives but by falling on a grenade in the gun pit that was being overrun by the NK He was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously The author was able to vividly describe the fighting conditions at Chosin Reservoir in the winter of 195051 The temp was well below 0F with windchill making conditions 20F There were 10000 Marines there and 100000 Chunese and NK troops who surrounded the Marines and Army personnel As the US men were attempting to evacuate the enemy shot and mortared the lines killing at will The Forward Air Controller FAC called in air support and Tom and Jesse s suadron of 30 dark blue Navy Corsairs came to the rescue They bombed shot up and rocketed the Chinese positions so our boys could get relieved get a hot meal and medical care The war would continue for 2 years and Red and other Marines would return to fight Jesse Brown was shot down and crash landed The remaining aircraft in the suadron circled Jesse and called for rescue Jesse was alive but still in the cockpit of his Corsair Smoke was pouring out of the aircraft His team did not understand why he didn get out Tom realized Jesse was trapped and crashed his plane to help Jesse and stay with him until the rescue chopper arrived Tom watched helplessly as Jesse died due to
