George Burke

George Burke is my Daddy who I am so proud of. He enlisted to go to Korea during the Korean War. He was captured and spent 911 days in North Korean and Chinese POW camps. I’m one of the lucky ones who can say that my Daddy came home when so many others did not. He was one of the 6 survivors of the over 300 men captured. The French Red Cross found him in China after the was was over. He weighed 71 pounds when they found him but he got healthy, got married and had me and my 5 little brothers. My folks were married for 66 years when he passed on March 3, 2019. He’s my hero.
