If there's a life that follers this
If there's a "Golden Gate",
The welcome that I want to 'ear,
Is just "Good onya Mate"
Lest we forget

The Medals of Lt. Col. C.H. Green (killed in action, age 30, Chongchon North Korea

Individualism, fair play, tolerance
A rare sense of humour
Independence, not blind discipline
Respect for results, not rank alone.

Korea 1950-51

Ian John Godfrey

A year in Korea
Scrambling along its peaks,
Struggling along its valleys
Fatigued, cold and weak
Fighting a fiendish enemy
In savage cold,
One year in Korea .
19 years and I am old.

for Excellence
In Military Arts!

A Belgian Sister and myself were holding a massively wounded Turkish soldier who had just died. And that gentle sister was softly singing to him, a lullaby from her home province. And her look of such great compassion and tenderness I shall not forget. And I am very glad that I had met and worked with

Sister Marie-Josephine, of Belgium

Anyone who would volunteer to go to a kimshi eating, fecal-agriculture country, with vertical contours, killer winters and killer rains, with killer hot seasons in between, in order to help preserve its freedom by engaging its brutal invaders in close combat, is a risk taker.

No common sense, the Digs, at all at all.

God bless you every one.
