SO cant* They are not forgotten Memories still vivid 50 years after war's end By JOHN COMO Gazette Staff Writer A national three-year commemoration of the 50th anniversaries of the beginning and end of the Korean War officially ends on Nov. 11, Veterans Day. The war began June 25, 1950, when North Korean troops invaded South Korea. It ended July 27, 1953, when an armistice was signed. ' A tribute to Korean veterans will be included in a Veterans Appreciation Dinner Saturday at the Indiana Veterans of Foreign Post 1989 along Indian Springs Road in White Township. The Indiana County Bicentennial Event will open at 4 p.m. with a display of military memorabilia and artifacts, with dinner to be served at 5 p.m. Tickets are $10 each. ' All veterans and their families are also encouraged to tell their stories and provide memorabilia for display at the Veterans Museum in the old Armory of the Historical and Genealogical Society, which . will be opened Nov. 11 along Wayne Avenue. Following are the stories of four county veterans who served in what is often described as the Forgotten War. Harry "Bo" Wood displayed a flag that Marines placed in front of their lines of defense. It was used to guide Navy pilots toward enemy positions. OlneyA. Knudtson When-Olney A. Knudtson, 67, of White Township, died in 1998, his family was surprised by what they found in a little folder he had hidden among memorabilia from 21 years of service with the U.S. Army. His service career included two tours of combat in Korea and three combat tours in Vietnam, including special- forces action in Cambodia. I The folder contained a silver , star with an oak leaf cluster. It - also contained reports about his courageous actions in two battles in October 1951 in Korea. [ "Dad talked a lot about his service in Vietnam, but not much about Korea," his son David said as he looked at an album with photographs, including many his dad had taken during die Korean War. "We had no idea that he had Left: David and Nariko Knudtson were surprised by the memorabilia left behind by Olney Knudtson. Right: Jim Collesar today and as an 18-year-old fireman on the USS Wisconsin. earned two silver stars. He probably didn't say anything because he didn't want to sound like he was bragging." But David said he, his mother, Nariko, and his sister, Rosanna Israel of Arlington, Va., were proud when they learned Olney had won two silver stars for gallantry in action. "It was incredible because dad won the silver stars for his actions in two battles only 14 days apart," said David, a former corporal in U.S. Marine Corps. Jack Rickard directed planes to targets from an island radar base. Photos by Tom Peel and Jamie Isenberg "When he did talk about Korea it was generally about things like treating people tough and not getting too close to friends you'd probably just lose." Olney Knudtson earned the silver stars as a 20-year-old sergeant hi the 24th Infantry Division for battles on Oct. 13, near Pandandong-ni, and Oct. 27, near Kumsong. On Oct. 13, Knudtson, a squad leader, took charge when most of the key leaders of Company B of the 5th Regimental Combat Team were lost during an assault against strongly defended enemy positions, according to the battlefield commendation. Although shaken and stunned by a concussion from a grenade, Knudtson remained with his men, and exposed himself to enemy fire as he led the relentless advance until the objective was secured. On Oct. 27, the platoon Knudtson was leading ran into a hail of murderous artillery and machine-gun fire. With complete disregard to his own safety, he made a one-man assault through a hail of automatic-weapons fire.

The massive storm was blamed for at least 14 deaths: nine in Virginia; two in Maryland and one each in New Jersey, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. The storm plowed into North Carolina's Outer Banks Thursday night with winds of about 100 mph and moved across Virginia today as its winds eased to around 40 mph. It began moving into western Pennsylvania and was expected to sweep through western New York state before dissipating hi Canada by Saturday. Michael Brown, director of the Federal Emerge'ncy Management Agency, said Isabel inflicted the worst damage along the Outer Banks. "Our concern down there is we have about 4,000 people who refused to evacuate. We're getting in to make sure they're OK," he said on ABC's Good Morning America. Brown cautioned that residents in Isabel's path should keep their guard up, with Continued on page 8 Inside • Locally, the wind and rain caused very little damage.

They were among 39 Pennsylvania companies and organizations from 27 counties honored for outstanding achievements in environmental protection. "Many of the award winners are excellent examples of the economic growth possible when environmental considerations become priorities," Gov. Ed Rendell said. "By focusing on environmental protection as an opportunity for technological innovation, for en- hanced efficiency and increased productivity, the Department of Environmental Protection is working with citizens to make environmental protection an engine of economic growth for Pennsylvania."

"Through the restoration and protection of watersheds, pollution prevention, waste reduction and the more efficient use of raw materials, the accomplishments of this year's winners improve the environment for the benefit of all Pennsylvanians."
