My father also was in the US Army and in the Korean War. He was stationed at Fort Lawton, Fort Lewis. He joined in when he was young, did his Boot Camp in Kansas.
We lost him to lung cancer in 1987, and miss him alot, but he is spoken of every day. My son makes me proud when he goes to his cemetery and tends to it and just visit. My son is only 23 years old. I don't think we have many kids that age who does that.
