What was your hardest battle?
Grandpa: Well in Korean War I was… I again participated in that Korean war and the Chinese and the Korean I look Korean there are so many so I was gunner sixty caliber machine gun and we push them then they push us back too so its just like forward and retreat and forward and retreat so while there are so many people that been dead at that time because nobody like to be defeated however we won the war. Especially the Chinese people they are so many they are so cruel they have a drum and a whistle and trumpet by the time they sound that trumpet and drum they are like a ghost town going down the hill so we have to use our own machine gun and again 3 times we retreat and advance then we won then we go to yellow river between the Chinese and North Korean boundary and I was in the third wave the first wave is three battalion and that one battalion is three companies and that one company is three platoon and I was in third battalion and in third wave and it is scary because they make us look in the field glass and there are so many just like ant walking along the river of yellow river and we at the back and the other side of me we were well the same number probably because we are just like that too. So they said us that a the first wave nobody will survive to cross river the second wave again to cross river and just very few survived then at the third wave there was many and I was so scared to because you could just imagine there was many at the other side of the bank of the river so they figure out if we cross the yellow river then there so many American army that will die so they relieve Mac Arthur that was president Truman at that time we were so happy because there was no more fight so we won the battle with those north Korean people.
