Korean veterans stick together
By JAMIE PATTERSON
They sit alone, keeping to themselves as they eat their breakfast.
Laughter can be heard from time to time. And they seem to understand each other without even speaking.
They gather together once or twice a month to talk about the weather, sports or politics. But every now and then, the conversation may drift to what brings them together.
They are veterans of the Korean War. They are members of the 31st Infantry “Dixie” Division. They are Yazooans.
The group of men meet for breakfast at Howell’s Restaurant on the last Friday of each month. At one time, the group was composed of about 25 men. But with the passing of time, about seven of them continue to meet regularly.
