Murdered GI POW

While I agree with liberating South Korea by reaching the 38th Parallel, and then resolving the war by diplomacy, I will go to my grave wishing we had been able to track down every one of those murderers and hanged them all.

Yet Another Murdered GI POW

The lifeless body of this Soldier of the 21st Infantry Regiment, sprawled with four of his comrades by the side of a road, gives mute testimony to the probable fate of over 8,000 missing American Servicemen who lie in unmarked graves throughout Korea.

These five GIs were captured on the night of July 9, 1950. The North Koreans bound their captives' hands and shot them through the head. The men were found on July 10, after Americans had forced the North Koreans to retreat.

At least in the Korean War their families were spared the sight of a Hanoi Jane Fonda casting adoring glances at their murderers in Pyongyang.
