Aren't any Korean War Veterans pissed about

Trump asking and stepping into North Korea? How many Americans died in that war? And he becomes the first American president to dance into it? Bone Spurs and all?

1. Are WW II vets pissed about having relations with Japan and Germany?

Far more died in that war than Korea. How about Vietnam? More died in Vietnam than Korea. Should those vets be pissed that American presidents travel there?

5. If Nazis were still in charge of Germany

 

I think they'd be pretty pissed off.

Edit: Not that there are many left

2. Zero, my late father was a Korean War Veteran, and if he was still alive he'd be 104 years old -

If a soldier was there at age 20, hed be 89 today...

In other words, most are gone now, but I HEAR YOU, my friend

6. My dad would be 104 also.

He saw action in the Phillipines.

Parents and, of course, grandparents are reposed. I don't know how they would be able to handle what is transpiring today. 😪

4. My brother-in-law (in his mid-80's now) is a Korean

War vet. I haven't yet spoken with him about Trump's recent visit to the demilitarized zone, but the few previous times I've brought up the war he really doesn't talk much about it.

7. My Father might have been...

But he died in 2010.

My Dad was a die-hard republican, hated Truman since Truman sent him to Korea, and my Dad called Korea a "shithole."
(Sound familiar?)

He defended Nixon until the tapes came out.
Now? He's probably be mad as hell at Trump.
