Comments: My late brother-in-law was a Marine at the Chosin Resevoir. I remember him telling me stories when I was young. I enjoy reading stories of the men in that campaign. I am looking for a copy of "Chosin Marine" by Lt. Col Raymond Davis.

Comments: Ronald J. Russell, according to my memory of what little he told me, served in the military police in Korea, and at some point, was a drill instructor at Parris Island. Born Aug 11, 1933, (he may have lied about his age to enlist) in the Bronx, NY and died Jan 1985, Scranton,PA, age 51 of MS. I have forgotten much that he told me and want to give our children a better picture of him. I met him quite a while after his service. I think he received a purple heart. He may have been quarterback on a football team while in the service. Thank you for any help you can give.

HONOR CLEAN, BOOK

BILL BARRY wrote on April 22, 2003


City and State: DELAND FL

Unit: 1ST MARINE DIVISION

Service or Relationship: MARINE VETERAN - KOREA

Comments: HONOR CLEAN is a new book about the Korean War--It is dedicated to all the men and boys of the Silent Generation, who gave of themselves so South Korea could be free. This is their story.
It focuses on Marines of the 1st Division during 1951, but chronicles the entire war in nutshell. This is how it was, told by those who were there. Not the brutal baby killers recently portrayed by the Associated Press, and no phony poetic lyricism either. A memory for vets of the war, in memoriam for the dead. And a must read for a nation which contemplates doing it again, yet knows little about the human meat grinder that the first one was. Heed the past or repeat it...is the message for today.
HONOR CLEAN can be previewed at web bookstores like Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Type title, then click cover for further details about book and author, a veteran Marine who served in the Land of the Morning Calm when it was turned into a graveyard.
