Retired US Army Judge Advocate and Civil Affairs operator.
My list of Battle Buddies is a special virtual cemetery. It contains fellow soldier memorials who were killed in action or later died as a result of their wounds. I was privileged to have served with 6 of them. (If you read between the lines you will learn the stories of the other 2 who have a "family" connection to me.) Three other soldiers were fellow unit members and 6 of them were fellow Judge Advocate General Corps members. And 3 memorials are for civilians who were from units I was associated with. My memorials and sponsorships to all these servicemembers is my small effort to honor them.
And here is the story about the memorials that I added to the United Nations Cemetery in Busan, South Korea. When I was an enlisted medic, I was stationed in Busan. My sight-seeing of the city brought me to the cemetery. Nearly 35 years later I am happy to add names to this cemetery. The smaller countries are completed. (Larger countries like Canada and Turkey must wait for now.) Do you – yes, YOU – have a connection to those soldiers, sailors, airmen who died in the Korean War? Please let me know and I will gladly transfer management of those soldiers to you.
