This is a true story about a young man having to deal with a war. It takes you on a journey to boot camp training, training in the medical field, sea duty on a destroyer, and nineteen months in the combat zone. This is the transition of a patriotic, naive young boy in a war that nobody cared about because everyone served somewhere in WW2. Tired of war and only wants to get on with their lives, they didn't care, for they were in the big one. Therefore, what he had been in is known as the forgotten war. There were no victory parades, no welcome home, only feelings of shame and being made foolish. Korean War Veterans never talk about the war.
