North Korea

Last American prisoner from the Korean War to be released from forced labor camp

The prisoner in question, is Lieutenant Mark Wallace from Leonardtown in Maryland, who was captured by the Chinese People’s Volunteer Army near the Chosin Reservoir, in November 1950, after being severely injured by an artillery shell.

Unfortunately for him, he was in the coma for almost four years after his capture, and was therefore not eligible to be returned home at the signature of the cease fire.

He only regained consciousness in 1955, and spent the last 60 years of his life as a prisoner of war, living in terrible conditions in both military prisons and forced labor camps.

Re: North Korea

Maybe give it a Snope Norman?

Certainly is incredible to think that anyone could survive 60 years in an NK labour camp.

Maybe because only "World News Daily Report" is reporting it.

Re: North Korea

The O'Conner family four doors down from my home in Manchester gave their 19 year old son for this American war. Their obsession with the Communists amounted to what ? and what did the Commies ever do to them?, the Americans I mean. The communists south of the 38th Parallel became capitalists and everyone was happy.

One might ask what did DAESH do to you. Does that mean we should not fight them?

And before NK invaded South Korea in 1950 the South was already capitalist.

Truman was well acquainted with the domino theory - would we have wished an NK regime on the South or any of its neighbours?
