Do you know the dates of the Korean War or why we fought there? Retired Marine, Lt. Col. Larken Spivey, a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War who served President Nixon in the White house, joins us today to answer those questions and share stories of the Korean War with us.

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.

During peace times, the military offered such great opportunities for paid education and professional training, that many young people rushed to take advantage of this chance to improve their lives and launch a successful career. Women rightfully demanded the opportunity for a paid college education and technical training, as well as an opportunity tto use their skills in the service of their country, which was all well and good diuring peace times. But now the world is at war, and what began for many women as a simple desire to avoid paying for college as a member of the National Guard became full fledged combat duty, complete with experiences of brutal killing and bloodshed. The memories don't go away. While stories are common about men suffering post traumatic stress syndrome from military battle, what about the women? What about wo,en who must come back and resume their roles as mothers of children? Are they also having nightmares and becoming substance abusers to numb the pain from horrifying memories? After all the maimings and killings and psychological damage, what have we as women earned about war? Have we learned that we don't want to go through it again? Or are some of us excited at the thought of having the power to kill? Today we'll talk to activists who hope to heighten awarnenss about the need for therapy, counselng, and psychological repair of war veterans who have returned home from combat and are now having a major impact on their families.
There were over 16 million World War II Veterans. Today only a little over one million are still with us. On this special Memorial Day episode of Home Front, I interview a veteran of both World War II and the Korean War.
