John Jarrett: Korea & SE Asia Forces “Missing in Action” service

Posted on: Mon 7 Oct 2019

John is the State President of the KSEAF Association.  He tells us about this upcoming commemoration Service, and invites listeners to attend in recognition of our men who didn’t return home.   We also hear about his own role in Korea.  It’s a role that you would probably never have heard about, and probably never have envisaged existed, but it was crucial to the support of the men at the front.  When John returned home to Australia, he was struck by the public’s indifference to the experiences of soldiers who had served in Korea.
