Bernie Pular: The Guys on the Hill

It’s been called America’s “forgotten war,” yet it lasted from 1950-1953,  cost over $340 billion, and it took over thirty-seven thousand US casualties with over eight thousand troops missing in action–so many young men and women lost in a conflict our nation neither understood nor wanted.

For Army Korean War veteran Bernie Pular of Tionesta, Pennsylvania, his war wounds remind him, every day, that the Korean War cannot be forgotten.

This audio short story is a production of the Veteran Voices of Pittsburgh Oral History Initiative. Audiography: Kevin Farkas.  Interviewer: Kevin Farkas.  The original interview was recorded April 2014 in Tionesta, Pennsylvania.
