about two scenes and then went blank! Everyone was mad so

they recollected their rocks and left angrily!

The Fondest memory that my Grandpa has was when the war

ended. The war ended Monday July 27, 1953. When the war

ended, my Grandpa was standing on the top of a hill overlooking

a valley on the north side of the Injim River, with the duty of

Roving Patrol. There was supposed to be ceasefire at 10:00 P.M.

but in the past, ceasefire was supposed to happen but never did.

My Grandpa looked down at his watch when it was 9:30 P.M.,

and it was still noisy with artillery and guns firing, but then at 10

minutes to 10:00 P.M. the volume of all the guns and artillery firing

had dropped compared to the noise at 9:30 P.M.. Then at 9:58

P.M. the noise was even more quiet then minutes before. Finally

it reached 10:00 and the last weapon fired and there was silence,

“ It was so peaceful!” exclaimed my Grandpa, “ It was wonderful!”

he added. The war was finally over.

At the time of the war, my Grandpa wasn’t sure if the war was

meaningful but now he realizes, that the war helped stop

Communism in many places throughout the world. My Grandpa

is really special in the way that he would do anything for our

country. If asked he would go back in war and would like to be a

pilot (his lifelong dream). My Grandpa was not one of the 37,000

Americans killed or missing, or one of the 103,000 Americans

wounded during this war, but he is one of the many Americans

who believe that all Americans who served in this terrible war

should not be forgotten. My Grandpa is a very courageous

man as you can tell from reading this report and I’m glad that I

had the chance to interview and know him!
