Korea- Forgotten War Remembered Heroes.

Thanks to Facebook and some vacation time, I recently got in touch with an old mentor of mine from South Shore High School- Mike Rothfeld. He was quite the character. As a new teacher just starting out, I learned a lot from him. I won't say what I learned but trust me when I say it was quite the education. :-)

He is retired now and living in St. Augustine, Florida. He helped with the creation of this documentary on the Korean War. This project attempts to capture the history these men lived through and survived. Hearing them tell about their experiences is very moving!

I am very appreciative of all of the men and women who have served in the Armed Forces. I have seen several of my students serve with distinction and honor. While I may not always agree with the war they are fighting, I will always be thankful for their willingness to protect our country.
