Sharbrough survived mortar hit while serving in the Korean War
By JAMIE PATTERSON
Overshadowed by World War II and Vietnam, the Korean War is often referred to as The Forgotten War.
But William C. “Red” Sharbrough will never forget his time in Korea. His walking brace and head full of memories remind him everyday.
Looking through a gift bag he received in honor of Veteran’s Day, Sharbrough admits the Korean War is often overlooked. That makes every gift, card and personal thanks all the more special to him.
“The card means the most,” he said, smiling as he put his gift bag away.
A Purple Heart recipient, Sharbrough was wounded during his short time in combat. He served in Korea for seven weeks, two days. But he has lived with the aftermath of war well after his wounds healed. -------for the rest of the story see The Yazoo Herald printed edition or subscribe to the Digital Edition.----------
