Thoughts On The Forgotten War.

February 6, 2010

This was the first war where jet powered fighters engaged each other in dogfights. Our primary jet fighters were the F-84 Thunderjet, F9F Panthers and Cougars, and the F-86 Sabers.

This was a bad start for prisoners of war in the Cold War as well. The Chinese executed a lot of POWs and innocents thought to be pro America or simply anti- Communist. It was a war where news footage was more present and coverage more complete. But when it ended, a war weary America had no parades for the veterans.
