    Default My Veterans Day tribute

    Hi All, I felt today was an appropriate day to show the small display I made for my father, he served during the early part of the korean war and was one of the very few to get out alive from the battle at chosin reservoir, when he did talk about it , it was horrifying to hear what he went through at 18 yrs old. He lived a full life but sadly passed away from cancer 5 years ago, and I miss him badly.
    The helmet in the photos is a tribute helmet that was done by a good man named nick from top pots. Hope you like it and may all the souls alive and dead find peace caused by the horrors of war.

    P.S- anyone wanting to add thier own tribute displays may do so here.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Fitting tribute.

    To gain some small perspective of the absolute horror of the conflict and what was endured, I suggest watching the following documentary. I was available on net flix a little while ago, and may still be available.

    Chosin is an excellent documentary, Ive watched it a few times, I was hoping to catch a glimpse of my father in it but his only claim to fame is having his picture in LIFE magazine while he was in the hospital recovering from the frostbite, I literally had to search every page of life magazine from Dec 50 through 51 to find it since he vagualy remembered it and never kept a copy, but at least its something cool to have now.
