Reviews:
Paul Fussell, author of The Great War and Modern Memory
"Responsibly selected and authoritatively introduced, this collection is a worthy reminder of the facts and costs of an almost-forgotten war."

John Schultz, for the Chicago Tribune 
"Retrieving Bones performs a great service in linking the Korean War to World War II and Vietnam, helping Americans see themselves more clearly as consequential actors in one of the most ambiguous, and, if ever let fully out in the open, one of the grandest and most complex dramas of our century."

While in DC for Veterans Day '98, the webmaster (technical expert only) for this website met a Korean War veteran who was quite surprised to find his own picture on the wall of anonymous soldiers.  (If you doubt he has found his own photo, look at the ears.)  He promised to drop by and see his photo here and I hope when he does, that he will contact me or drop a line to the address on my card.  Thank you!

Here is his buddy pointing out the type of tank he drove.

This is a salute to all the Korean War veterans.   You are not forgotten.

This gentleman was visiting the Korean War Memorial in DC on Veterans Day and he is pointing to the type of tank he was assigned to.  He could recite the name of each of his fellow crew members and tell me where they sat.
