Before I begin reading about the Korean War, I want to read about the Chinese Civil War for some back story, but the local library has next to nothing on the subject matter. Do you happen to know a title or two that you can recommend?

Hello to all the war heros,

My name is Joeylynn. I am 33yrs old. My grandfather, my hero, Gilbert L. Fessler, faught in this horrible war as part of the Marine Corp. He does not talk much about his time there but he did show me paper work were he was promoted but never received his pins? I am not sure of the proper language for what a soldier receives when promoted and for that and I apologize. His health is failing and I would like to somehow honor him and his promotion. If anyone knows of my grandpa, or has any information that could help me, I would love to hear from you. Thank you to each and everyone of you.
Joeylynn Lee

We had Camp Stoneman here. School children who tried to cross Harbor street were often late for school as the soldiers marching to the embarcation point weren't about to stop. A couple live hand grenades were found and a friend and I stole a recoiless rifle visual aid that was rotting in a corner of some open warehouse before it was demolished. The soldier's barracks were purchased by the city of Pittsburg and made into section 8 aka welfare housing. The families living there suffered epidemics of head lice and roach infestation. All the students in the Pittsburg schools had to be checked for lice. I had a friend who lived in one of the barracks turned public housing and we would turn out the lights and turn them back on and HUNDREDS of roaches would run to their hiding places. It was tragic and heartbreaking.

My Daddy was Hershel Prince. Some who fought with him are still around. Any stories from anyone who knew him would be greatly appreciated. I lost my Daddy when I was just a boy. All records were lost.
