My uncle went to Korea, but I don't have any pictures of him from that era.

Starting with my granpop in the middle sitting down: (The B/W album Boys of Becker Country MN. I have says he was a Sgt.)

His father was killed by the Turks in the surge when the British cut off supplies to the Greeks fighting for their independence from Ottoman rule. There was a mass exodus and the rest of his family got out and back to what is now mainland Greece. My Grandpop came to the states in The late 1890s.

-Dad Middle standing up_He ended up with 27 years in total retired a Msgt.

Wow, I am older than you and to have a father in during the Korean War time is awesome. All my relatives that served are from the Vietnam era.
