A new Korean War would be just as brutal as the first one, veterans say

Grim as it was for them, the old soldiers of the Korean War would go back again if they could.

"I'm ready to saddle up," said Peter Popolizio, 80.

As a 21-year-old, he fought for Pork Chop Hill, the most famous battle of the war.

"If I was a little younger, I'd go back," said Popolizio, who earned a Silver Star. "We all would."

But make no mistake: The veterans do not want to see their country fighting on the Korean peninsula ever again.

Will Marine Corps be reborn as strategic force?

South Korea’s Marine Corps, nicknamed “Ghost Busters,” has a worldwide reputation for its combat prowess amid successful operations during the Korean War and in Vietnam.

Despite such fame the service has been domestically recognized merely as a small force affiliated with the Navy.

It has long suffered from a small budget as larger parts of defense spending have been funneled into the Army, Navy and Air Force.

Of the 9-trillion-won spending for this year’s arms improvements, the Marine Corps received just 100 billion won, some 1.2 percent of the total.

Moreover, its main responsibility has apparently shifted from amphibious assault operations to coastal and facility protection and security services, with the shortage of manpower and planned troop reductions.
