IN REGRARD TO THE FORGOTTEN WAR MIAS :!cry:
THE DOD Estimates 3,067 to 3,838 of 7,860 MIAS are Still in North Korea
On March 21, 2012 the Obuma Administation suspended talks with North Korea over Repration of MIAS :!mad:
On October 2014 the North Koreans announced they would move the remains of 5,000 MIAS en masse
Ref: MIssing iN action {Korea} Wikipedia
So What can be done?
Congress is the voice of the People
Let your Congressman know of this legacy
Prehaps Congress can get talks going again with North Korea and bring our missing sons home to the USA

The Kalashnikov series of weapons is not based off of Sergei Simonov's weapon designs in any way. Most of Simonov's designs suffered from susceptibility to dirt interfering with the internals, and part of the Kalashnikov's success is due to its increased resistance to dirt. Maybe this is what you were thinking of when you wrote the SKS page.

Admin reply: Hi, your contact email at Yahoo keeps bouncing you as unknown, so I reply this way hoping you will read the Guest Book again.

I don't have your uncle listed on the KW MOH list
http://www.koreanwaronline.com/arms/mohindex.htm
If you aren't mistaken I would appreciate a copy of his citation or some other documentation.

The interpretation of your uncle's official listing is that he was a casualty of some sort on September 9, 1951, and Returned to Military Control (RMC) at a later date.
BORRELLI FRANK - US56052292 - 1951/09/06 - CA - Alameda - RMC - 7th Cav Regt (Inf)-1st Cav Div

Your article on the M3A1 says that it may fire if dropped whether the bold is cocked or not. I don't think so. It fires on an open (cocked) bolt and until the trigger id depressed, all of the cartridges are in the magazine and there's no way it'll fire. If it's cocked, it might though. :)

Admin reply: When loaded the cartridges are stripped, chambered and fired by the forward motion of the bolt when either cocked or driven back by mechanical motion. Picture dropping the loaded weapon, uncocked, in a way to give maximum rearward inertia to the bolt when weapon motion is stopped by hitting a hard surface. If the inertial energy is sufficient to cause the bolt to continue moving past the top cartridge, the spring will cause it to strip, chamber and fire a cartridge just as though it were in full blow-back operation. If you don't believe this, try it, but not if the fired round can hit anything.

Hello, I am trying to find information on my grandfather and all I have is his name, rank and birth year and death date. How do I find out where he was and what unit he was attached to? I appreciate any help.
SSGT. Singleton, Arnold. He was from Missouri.

Admin reply: You may get a copy of his service records by submitting the little information you have in a Standard Form 180

If you can find his SSN and/or birth dates from others in your family, the Personnel Records Center will be more likely to help you.

All I can tell you from my records is that he was not wounded in either Korea or Vietnam. Good luck.
