Mayberry miliary - More should have heard panel discuss Korean War...
More should have heard panel discuss Korean War On behalf of the Macon County Historical Historical Society and Museum, I would like to thank Jan Parks, who was born and raised in South Korea during the Korean War, and local Korean War veterans Dave Mayberry, Jerry Seymour and Floyd Cooper for taking part in the Korean Korean War panel program at the museum. The program was in conjunction with the opening of the new exhibit pertaining pertaining to the 60th anniversary of the start of the Korean War, with each panelist giving background information on their involvement in the war and its effect on their lives 60 years ago and today. I am sorry that more community residents of all ages did not attend the program to hear the personal accounts of Parks and the veterans who, as young men and women, took part in the first major conflict of the Cold War. Their individual stories told of the hardships, tragedies and triumphs of the war and the personal frustrations of coming back home to an unwelcoming unwelcoming and indifferent nation that had tired of war so soon after World War II. Although many Korean War veterans feel today that they have been forgotten because they took part in what historians historians now call The Forgotten War, we as Americans should never forget those young men and women who stepped forward forward to answer the call of their country to fight for the noble cause of freedom. It is never too late as Americans to thank them for their service of so many years ago in defense of freedom that so many of us take for granted today. Patrick McDaniel, executive director Macon County History Museum, Decatur
