highway of heroes
I have only stood on a bridge once and it was one of the most gut wrenching scenes I have ever witnessed. Ironically, years later I ended up in a tow truck having my car towed into the dealership and when I looked at a picture on the dashboard of the drivers truck, it was a picture of the solider I had silently offered a prayer for on that bridge.
In the Korean War, I felt lucky to be going at someone else's expense. Adventure and curiosity. How would it feel to be shot at? What was an artillery barrage like? Would there be hand-to-hand fighting? We all expected to survive.
