Taking time this Memorial Day to do something my family has never done: collecting as many photos of my father, James Cook, from his time serving in the Korean War as we can find. We always use this day to honor the sacrifices our veterans made for us, but from my end, I've never taken the time to pull together my father's photos, both from overseas as well as stateside. So, here's a first effort at trying to rectify that oversight.
That's my dad on the left with a pipe in his mouthDon't know much about this series of photos taken in Korea, but if they were busy digging foxholes, at least it looks like they were having a good time of it

Once again, appecation to all of the men and women who served our country, and for me personally, a special thank you to my dad.
