    They're waiting, yes, they are. Thank you. I am sorry about your father, My God! Mine served in Korea. 8th Army under both Walker and then Ridgeway. He was at the Chosin Reservoir. I have never ever done this on this site but I will for you after reading this. I have a little poem called One Last Request From The Fallen Heroes. It might speak to you. I wrote it based on what I heard from my father and others. Regards, Gerard
