“My name’s Eugene Shaw but everybody calls me Gene. I was born on May 21 in Cleveland, Ohio. I am 82-years old and live with my wife Nancy.
We have a son, Robert Shaw who is 57. He lives about 500 miles away with his wife and they come to visit us fairly often. He went to college and
got some fancy job selling chemicals. We have no family living close by except for my cousin Arthur and his family. We see them sometimes but
Nancy doesn’t seem to be too social these days so I don’t push her too much. I try to get out with my buddy Jim. We served together in the Korean
War but Nancy yells that we drink too much when we are together and it gets my sugar high. Who cares at my age?I’m not going to be around
forever. I like my beer and a little nip of whiskey at night to help me sleep.
I am a Veteran. I proudly enlisted and served for 2 years in the Marines. I was a private in the Medina County Marine Corps League Detachment
569, Medina VFW Post 5137. A great group of guys and we lost quite a few. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I signed up. It was so
cold that first winter. Korea was a land of weather extremes–all bad. It went from 30 below zero in the winter to over 100 degrees in the summer.
During the cold winter months, we wore long- johns, utility trousers, waterproof cold weather trousers, utility jacket, sweater, a parka and thermo
boots. The enemy wore heavy quilted coats and pants and, for the most part, sneaker-like shoes. From what I understand, they weren’t very warm.
In between summer and winter was the monsoon season that turned the country into a flooded swamp. Aside from the war, the bad weather was a
morale factor more than anything. The cold and heat were unbearable and during monsoon season, no one was ever dry. That’s where my troubles
started with my feet. Wow wee, my darn feet were always wet, stinking wet in the summer and cold and frozen in the winter. Those boots didn’t
protect at all; in fact I think that they made things worse because they leaked so much. Probably can’t blame anyone but the soggy wet soil. You ever
hear of trench-foot? I had it and still got some of it. That’swhat I got to take home with me from Korea but it’s better than the alternative. Yeah that is
war or a least it was in my time. I bet they have made some progress in getting those troops better equipment than in my day.
