"It was a simple trip over the mountains, if 'simple' can be considered an apt description for any military convoy. During wartime, convoys are well organized groups of ships or motor vehicles traveling together for mutual support, often with armed defense support from aircraft. There was a war being fought, but the convoy was stateside, not in Suwon or Wonju. The Korean War raged miles away across the Pacific Ocean, but the only adversary this convoy was trying to navigate around was civilian taxpayers."

Celebrate Veterans on November 11th with two stories of life in "this man's Army" from the Korean War.
