    A World War II and Korean War veteran who received a Purple Heart celebrated his 101st birthday at Hooters — and has vowed to return there every year until he dies. Harry Perez Cerezo, a retiree from Texas, was joined by his family, friends, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization when he rang in his milestone birthday at the chain's El Paso location on January 5. The centenarian was serenaded by the Hooters girls and gifted a signed Hooters hat 'I have never seen him cry, and we saw him cry there. His tears just came rolling down,' Harry...

    Truman's inaction against China during the Korean war made the World a much more dangerous place since China assisted both Pakistan and North Korea to obtain nuclear weapons; China consolidated its takeover of Tibet causing much suffering. Lives could have been saved in Vietnam if Truman had attacked China during the Korean War. Inaction against China during the Korean War had its price. What would be the consequences of inaction against Iran? By Ezequiel Doiny Harvard Belfer Center reports China is winning the economic race with the US.

    A few updates: I will appear on Faux News's "The Korean War" special with Brett Baier, Sunday night, May 28, 10:00. I know may of you are boycotting FAUX, and I respect that. Did this for an old filmmaking friend. Also, I have begun a MWF youtube show "Patriot's History," where I just read through "A Patriot's History of the United States" at 12 noon EST on the Wild World of History channel. Just started the Revolutionary War. We are 24 episodes in, all in the video archives. We are working to make "Patriot's History" in to a "John Adams/Sons...

    Royce Williams was a real-life "Top Gun" 10 years before Tom Cruise was even born. On a cold November day in 1952, Williams shot down four Soviet fighter jets -- and became a legend no one would hear about for more than 50 years. The now 97-year-old former naval aviator was presented with the Navy Cross, the service's second-highest military honor at a ceremony Friday in California. Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro said on Friday that among the many proposals he has reviewed to upgrade sailors' awards, Williams' case "stood out above all others. It was very clear to me...

    Some years ago my wife bought her Dad, George, a book called "A Father's Legacy" which has blank pages for Fathers to write thoughts on memories of various activities that affected their own lives. One page asked the question, "If you were in the Armed Forces, how did your service affect your life?" Although he survived the front lines of Korea for 14 months, he suffered from the physical & mental effects of combat until 5 years before his death when he finally put down the bottle & found peace. He entered the Korean war as an infantryman and carried...

  • Review: China’s Anti-American ‘Battle at Lake Changjin’ Is the Worst Movie of 2021

    Breitbart ^ | 12/27/2021 | David Ng
    First, the bad news. China’s super-sized propaganda The Battle at Lake Changjin is one of the highest grossing movies of the year, raking in more than $900 million in less than three months if we’re to trust official CCP figures, which we can’t and shouldn’t, but more on that later. It was the No. 1 movie at the global box office until Spider-Man: No Way Home surpassed it this weekend. The three-hour Korean War epic has easily trounced other Hollywood blockbusters to cement Commie-wood’s ascendance as a movie industry ready to dominate the world. The movie is allegedly so popular...

    Set during the 1950-1953 Korean war, the film favorably highlights the heroism of Chinese soldiers during a key battle—the Battle of Lake Changjin [Chosin Reservoir] (and referred to as “the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea” in China).

The movie was commissioned by the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China, otherwise known...

The film will arrive on screens in the U.S. and Canada on Nov. 19, and then Australia...

    Seventy years ago, conflict on the Korean Peninsula raged. “The Forgotten War,” as it has come to be known, claimed upwards of 4 million lives by some estimates.Why is the Korean War so rarely discussed in military science or foreign policy circles? We tend to study our successes more often than our failures. This conflict offers both for study, especially the latter.The Korean War came less than five years after the end of World War II, when America had the most powerful military on earth. Nevertheless, we were embarrassed multiple times on the battlefield.In Clay Blair’s massive tome on the...

    WASHINGTON — The U.S. military said Friday it has identified the remains of an army chaplain who was lauded by fellow soldiers for his selfless example in the Korean War, received the Medal of Honor and is being considered for sainthood by the Roman Catholic Church. Rev. Emil Kapaun, of Pilsen, Kansas, died of pneumonia on May 23, 1951, as a prisoner of war during the Korean War. An army chaplain in World War II and the Korean conflict, he was captured on Nov. 2, 1950, near Unsan, North Korea, as he helped wounded troops surrounded by Chinese forces. Kapaun,...

    Designed during the Second World War by Hawker Aircraft, the Sea Fury was the last propeller-driven fighter to serve with the Royal Navy and has the distinction of being one of the fastest production single reciprocating engines built. While few of the aircraft remain today, around a dozen are known to have been modified for air racing, while others remain in use on the air show circuit.

    American Minute ^ | July 27, 2020 | Bill Federer
    "FREEDOM IS NOT FREE" is the inscription on the Korean War Memoria l in Washington, D.C. The Korean War started June 25, 1950. Communist North Korea invaded South Korea, killing thousands. Outnumbered South Korean and American troops, as part of a U.N. police action, fought courageously against the Communist Chinese and North Korean troops, who were supplied with arms and MIG fighters from the Soviet Union. Five-star General Douglas MacArthur was Supreme U.N. Commander, leading the United Nations Command from 1950 to 1951. MacArthur made a daring landing of troops at Inchon, deep behind North Korean lines, and recaptured the...

    Sixty-seven years ago today, guns fell silent along the Korean Demilitarized Zone after more than 3 years of brutal fighting to defeat the expansion of communism on the Korean Peninsula.  On National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day, we pause to remember the uncommon courage and sacrifice of ordinary Americans who fought to defend freedom and protect the values we hold dear. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the start of the Korean War.  When the conflict began, Americans were still rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of World War II, enjoying the blessings of peace and looking toward...

    So that lavish state dinner President Obama hosted for Chinese President Hu Jintao last week? Turns out it was an even worse decision than previously thought. Not only did Obama honor a regime of human-rights abusers, but it turns out they weren’t even appreciative. According to the Epoch Times, a pianist at the event played a well-known Chinese propaganda song that’s about defeating the U.S. in a war. And it sounds like the Chinese government may have known the song would be played beforehand: "Lang Lang the pianist says he chose it. Chairman Hu Jintao recognized it as soon as...
