We remember the heroes of our World Wars and Vietnam, let's not forget the brave men and women who served in Korea.
Donald J. Farinacci is a US Army Vietnam-era Veteran. After his military service (1966-1969), he became an attorney. Donald J. Farinacci is the author of When One Stood Alone, Last Full Measure of Devotion: A Tribute to America's Heroes of the Vietnam War and, his upcoming book Truman and MacArthur: Adversaries for a Common Cause.According to the description of Truman and MacArthur: Adversaries for a Common Cause, “The author's purpose in writing this book was to tell a story of events which occurred during a brief but momentous period in American history, involving two extraordinary men, President Harry S. Truman and General of the Army, Douglas MacArthur. The story tells of their interaction during a time of grave national crisis, how they veered badly off course and ultimately collided head-on. It was a collision which both altered the course of history and irreparably changed their personal destinies.
What is related here is first and foremost a human story, but one that plays out against the panorama of the Korean War—a nasty, brutish and fearsome slice of hell where what was at stake was nothing less than the determination of whether the Communist Sino-Soviet alliance would gain dominion by force over large regions of the continent of Asia or be contained and held in check by a coalition of United Nations Forces led by the United States. As the drama unfolded during a critical period of approximately ten months in 1950 and 1951, the all-pervasive tension holding the principal players in its grip was the ever-present threat of nuclear war looming over all of humankind.
We ran this as a best of back in December, but with yesterday being the 60th anniversary of the Korean War armistice, there is no question this is the right episode.
Also, with the last year's announcement of the naming of DDG-116 after Medal of Honor recipient CAPT Thomas Hudner, USN (Ret) - it is an easy decision on today's show.
A replay of our Navy Air Korean War episode with CAPT Hudner in the first half hour, and then author David Sears to discuss his book Men Such as These: The Story of the Navy Pilots Who Flew the Deadly Skys Over Korea.
Ronnel Corre will talk about the consequence and the destruction of the Korean War. Ronnel will specifically talk about the Korean babies who were left in a struggle of finding new homes.

Forcing some families to let go of their babies, due to a lack of money. Learn the struggles that these newly adopted Korean babies faced by their newly adopted families who were mostly white who did not know much of their culture, history, customs, etc. These newly adopted Koreans faced a lot of struggles and identity confusion.

Hey there Tea Sippers!! It's another edition of Don't Come out of a Bag and I want us to talk for REAL about the state of the union. With all of the hoopla that's going on with the Michael Brown case in Ferguson, MS I am compelled to ask this question,
Are we in CIVIL WAR or CIVIL UNREST?
We've been talking about the increased amounts of police brutality and here we are in a state of confusion where The National Guards are on the streets, tear gas, rubber bullets, and dogs are being used to control the people and the pictures are looking identical to those from the Civil Rights Movement protests over 40 years ago.
What can we do to reclaim our sense of peace, our rights as citizens to freedom of expression, OUR INDEPENDENCE in this "great" country?
Also, we will pay homage to Robin Williams and talk about depression. When are we as a country going to mental health RELEVANT in our quest for health care in this country. Look at Mr. Andre "Killer Beez" Johnson of Wu Tang Clan, he severed his penis and attempted suicide due to his bout with depression. What can be done to look at mental health serious?
And of course, whatever is on YOUR mind....we can talk about it right HERE... right NOW..... just Don't Come out of a Bag, because if you do, I am coming out of a BIGGER BAG!!
All that and more, so make sure you have lots of crumpets, baby because we've got a HOT POT of Tea for your nerve, darlings.
