Last Known Activity
After service in korea my farther rasied a family of 3 children was married to the same women for 35 years beofore he died of natural causes in 1987 He never forgot he was a marine and he regreted leaving he always wished he would have  made a carreer out of it

I remeber waking in the morning and unzipping his dress blues hanging in their bag and relizing the honor and galentry of the men that wore those colours although it was it not something he wanted me to experience 

He instilled the values of the colours in all he came in contact with he never let you forget you were an american and told you were to go if you had second thoughts

He raised his children wiith the same honor and respect and dicipline he felt for the colours
i owe alll of my success to those 3 teaching and to him

his personel carrer changed after his service he became a computer programmer in the early computer years 
he worked on  programs for national defence in 1970

In 1974 he won the coast guard achivement medal for programs he wrote for the                                                                      united states  coast guard eastern district headquaters gouvenors island  N.Y.
His last reqest was to be burried in his monkey suit as he called them (dress blues) a request that was fullfilled with great appreciation and love for his duty in the corp

I would like to thank the USMC for the honor they bestowed upon him and his family when he was intered in his final resting place

Korean War/CCF Intervention (1950-51)/Evacuation of Hungnam
Start Year
End Year

The Hungnam evacuation, code-named Christmas Cargo, also known as the Miracle of Christmas, was the evacuation of UN forces and North Korean civilians from the port of Hungnam, North Korea, between 15 and 24 December 1950.

The port at Hungnam was the site of a major evacuation of United Nations military, South Korean military, and North Korean civilians during the Korean War in late December 1950. Approximately 100,000 troops and material and 100,000 civilians were loaded onto merchant ships and military transports totaling 193 shiploads over the weeks leading up to Christmas 1950. They were transported to safety in Pusan and other destinations in South Korea. The evacuation included 14,000 refugees who were transported on one ship, the SS Meredith Victory — the largest evacuation from land by a single ship. This was made possible by a declaration of national emergency by President Truman issued on 16 December 1950 with Presidential Proclamation No. 2914, 3 C.F.R. 99 (1953). This operation was the culmination of the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, in which the embattled UN troops fought their way out of a Chinese trap.
