WE REMEMBER

Those we left there in the cold
We remember, we remember
Have no fears of growing old
Oh do we remember
 
Those who fell in prison yards
We remember, we remember
Savage weather savage guards
Oh do we remember
 
Those who died face down in mud
We remember, we remember
Asian soil Yankee blood
Oh do we remember
 
Those whose names we can't forget
We remember, we remember
Comrade spirits with us yet
Oh do we remember
 
Heartbreak Ridge and Pork Chop Hill
We remember, we remember
If we don't honor them who will
Oh do we remember
 
Those who died when far too young
We remember, we remember
It is for them this song is sung
Oh do we remember

Words from a Veteran...Not of the Korean War... but of Korea

Good Times on Easy Queen Mountain

 

Memories of Easy Queen Mountain in winter

Rifle fire still echoing from the DMZ fourteen years after the

Korean Police Action has ended

 

Snow piling up against the tents as Thanksgiving leaves and

Christmas comes and goes on frosty wings

 

Reminding 5th Tac that my enlistment is up and being told

not to worryNeeds Of  The Air Force will extend my

enlistment whether I like it or not

 

Response: Youll have to Im not re-enlisting while Im on

this frigging mountain. Extension goes through

 

Army asks if they can borrow our M-16s for training, seems

they have ammo, but no M-16s - Situation Normal All Fucked

Up

 

Korean Officer appears in tent on Christmas Day with gift

of lighters as thanks for working on their behalf silence from

5th Tac

 

Balky radar demanding constant attention and only three-level

apprentices fresh from tech school to help out, exacerbated by a

pushy Butter Bar in Ops who has to be reminded that he is not in

charge of maintenance

 

Almost nearly, but not quite longing for the heat of

Viet Nam, maybe for just a few days

 

Called to Seoul by Korean Air Force brass to give my opinion of

present radar and recommendations for a replacement

 

A year or so later find that they have installed the radar I had

wearily recommended

 

Meet my replacement in Seoul, along with replacement parts for

antennafind that he has no experience with UPS-1 radar, so

back I go with him, not quite understanding why I care

 

A few months after finally returning to Clark, brass floats idea of

my returning to Easy Queen - nobody else can keep the little critter

on the air

 

Its nearly time for me to return to the States, so the suggestion meets

with the scorn it so richly deserves. I would have to extend my tour in

SEA, and I dont want to hear that Needs Of The Air Force crap

again

 

So, after nearlly four years spent mostly in the tropic heat of SEA, they

send me home to the States, Northern Minnesota, and 

 

Memories of Easy Queen Mountain in winter
