    “If I were God, what would you want for Christmas?” With a thousand-yard stare, a haggard and bloodied marine looked incredulously at the war correspondent who asked him this question. In an answer that took “almost forever,” the marine responded, “Give me tomorrow." After nearly four months of continuous and bloody combat in Korea, such a wish seemed impossible.

    James says: "The boys of Summer Camp….Amazing!!"
    "Another untold story about a forgotten war"

    Story

    For those who read (or listen to) military history books, Korea is a largely untapped reservoir of yet-untold stories. Books like Colder than Hell and The Last Stand of Fox Company gave us a glimpse of the hell of a Korean winter in which staying alive takes a lot more than remembering what they taught you in boot camp - assuming you even got to go to boot camp.

    This story revolves around the Marines of George Company who fought to take and hold the airfield at Koto-Ri. This was essential because it would serve as both a supply replenishment point and evacuation center for the many wounded.

    The enemy fought hard and bravely, and the Marines had to do the same. The men of George Company did, were victorious, and now how proudly have their names carved in history. The story is well-told, and one worth hearing about.
