After Rudy Weddle returned from overseas combat in Korea and tried to join his local VFW post in Roanoke, Va., he was turned away.
“They wouldn’t let me join,” he said. “They said I hadn’t been in a war, that it was a ‘police action.’ It wasn’t a police action. Even though nobody attacked us, we were in a war.”
It’s called the “Forgotten War,” although those like Weddle, now 81, remember it.
