too bad my dad isn't alive to see this. it would have been nice for him to see the looong over due recognition of the vets who fought in the Korean War. since he was one of those vets who were over there to fight.

http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/12/31/3162307... SAN DIEGO -- It's been almost 60 years since James McEachin returned home with a bullet still lodged in his chest, finding an America indifferent toward the troops who fought in Korea. Now he will get the homecoming parade he had expected.
.
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/12/31/korean-w... The Defense Department for the first time will put a float in Pasadena's Tournament of Roses -- one the most watched parades -- to commemorate the veterans from a conflict that still casts a shadow over the world.

http://www.twincities.com/ci_22287622/pentago... The $247,000 flower-covered float will be a replica of the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.
The Pentagon's debut comes ahead of events marking the 60th anniversary of the July 1953 armistice that halted the bloodshed but did not declare peace
.

the main thing I can say about this is that it is about time those Vets were praised for their efforts for what they did. it in many ways removes the stigma of it being the 'forgotten war'.

The Korean War was a waste of time. The enemy was never finished off. It was the beginning of many worthless wars by the pathetic United States. The days of killing the enemy are over. The North Korean slants should have all been fried with one giant flamethrower.

I bet he killed himself when he saw that he had produced a retard. You have a name that is common in India, I am wondering if you are the result of a botched abortion, since females are considered a burden. I bet that is what caused your retardation.

sorry troll. but it looks like you are rather badly instructed in what goes on here.
.
but I am for ancestry actually Prussian/English/Irish. I was born here in the Twin Cites at one of the hospitals. and my parents were very happy when I was born. since they wanted a daughter first. and they did get their wish of a daughter in me.
.
as for my father. he passed on when he was in his late 60s. he never considered me a burden. in fact I was the one he taught how to do stuff. like fishing, gardening, construction of buildings, etc.....
.
and for aspergers. to be diagnosed with it. you have to have average(normal) intelligence to genius level. and I was found to be rather high level in my intelligence.
,
as for a different troll. all I want to do with him. is to be able to toss him to Pele via a active volcano. except I would be puking my guts out from touching him. I refuse to lower myself to hitting on him. and if I did touch him. be bleaching the parts of me that came in contact with that troll.
.
why he thinks I should be hitting on him. I do not know. since I have a wonderful husband. and a beautiful daughter.

This assburger has been stalking me for months. I told her I'm not interested in her kind but she won't leave me alone. I can't seem to shake her. I'm worried this freak may have an assault rifle like the assburger kid killer. I guess when you're as popular with the ladies as I am, you just have to put up with some of the freaks.

too bad the troll was not there. and if the troll was. why didn't the troll stay there.
.
the troll is VERY delusional to think I would want it. sorry, but I refuse to lower my standards. I have a good man as in my husband.
.
if the troll was to die. I would not mourn it's passing.
