In case you missed it folks, during and following the Korean War(Police Action per the White House then) prisoners of war were treated abominably. The Chinese tortured US prisoners unmercifully including water boarding(Yes Virginia it is torture and not a gift from Santa). Many of the tortured signed confessions which were used as Chinese propaganda during the war. Hence the negative view of prisoners of war from Korea, and the lack of proper benefits. I was not aware of Korean Service Members not receiving back pay for their period of incarceration, and am considerably outraged by it. My final thought on this is, of course, this comes up as the number of Korean Vets are much much less, and will cost the US virtually nothing as usual. We’re all heart when someone is 85.
