When Army Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Gantt left for the Korean War in 1950, he told his young wife to remarry if he didn’t return.
Clara Gantt told him she wouldn’t. She’d wait for him. And she did, for 63 years.

On Friday, his remains, in a flag draped coffin, were delivered back to Los Angeles with full military escort.
Clara, now 94, stood from her wheelchair, tears streaming. The pain of her loss was clearly etched in her face.


Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid.

War affects both the combatants and the innocents.

Who weeps for Mao Tze Tung's son who died in the Korean War?

Kim Il Sung who in bent on uniting Korea and a hothead, Stalin who encourages him and MacArthur who wanted to redeem his shame for escaping the Japanese and had ambition to be the Presdient of the USA, Lit the fuse by crossing into the Yalu River (China). China's Mao with Liu Shaoqi and Lin Biao had to react in force.

That was in 1950. all the protagonists are now dead...butUntil now the effects is still being felt by people like Clara Gantt.
