Comments: Hi, and a sincere Thank You for all who have served and protected our country.

I am looking for info on my great-uncle Henry R. Hopkins born in GA. I knew him when I was a child. He wore a brace on his leg.

On his headstone it has SP5 Army, Korean and Vietnam.

I have a newpaper obit that includes the following:
He was buried with full military honors and a 21 gun salute from Fort McPherson. Service men from Fort McPherson served as pallbearers. American Legion members acted as honorary pallbearers.
A member of the American Legion, Hopkins received many awards for his military service. In addition, he was a recipient of the Silver Star, several Purple Hearts with Stars and the Bronze Medal.

My dad says, "Uncle Henry was at HeartBreak Ridge."

I was there when a guy was doing guard duty, and someone wouldn't stop when ask, and he was shot in the stomach. The 1st Sarg. was a short Irish red-headed man and built his own hooch up on the hill close to the supply building with a rock fireplace in it. I also spent a few weeks on the DMZ patroling with the 9th Cav. Also was there when a young fellow fell in love with a village girl in Changpari, and jump off the bridge and drowned. I went to Fort Gordon Georgia as a weapons instructor and trained troops for Vietnam. I was a Sargent then.

Comments: John is a distant relative of mine. He was killed in Korea and was highlighted in the November 1951 issue of Redbook Magazine. He was to be buried at the Souix City Iowa cemetary, but as his casket was being lowered into his plot, the sheriff stopped the funeral because John was an Indian and at the time the cemetary was "white only". His body was returned to the funeral home and 2 weeks later, President Truman personally intervened and JOhn was buried in Arlington National Cemetary.

Am curious to hear about him and circumstances surrounding his death.

His "story" is quite sketchy.
