Vlim - I didn’t realize that there were any Dutch troops in Korea. I know the Brits were there,
and the Ozzies, as well as the Turks and the Greeks. A cuple of the neutrals had Medical personnel
there also - I think Sweden was one. Am going by memories, on this stuff, from a long time ago.
Even my studies and reading on the Korean War are from at least 40 years ago. For those of us of
my age, the war in VN kind of took over the study time of those who cared, and those who try to
get a grasp of history. I came “of age” between those two wars, and still have memories of the end
of WWII as a youngster, as well.
Of course, I think that those of us who recognize the valor of these troops honor all the UN Forces there (even though I
do NOT, personally, honor the UN). I don’t even have anything against the Chinese soldiers sent there.
They were just doing their job for their country, and probably had no choice in the matter. Yesterday’s enemy, as
far as I am concerned, despite the “huff and puff” of the relationship between the West and China today.
All of the casualties among honorable combatants in all past wars bled the same color!
Vlim - thanks for reminding us that many countries sent troops to Korea.
