Growing up in the south i heard a lot of stories from a LOT of different wars growing up. My favorites always came from my Grandfather who was a demolition specialist in the Korean Conflict. He said that they mostly cleared roads and built temporary bridges lines with explosives. They did this just in case any of the enemy soldiers from North Korea tried to use their bridge. They would just blow it up and that was that. While this was one of his true stories there was one tall tale that Papa told that always made me laugh and at the same time showed his love and admiration of the people and soldiers from South Korea. The tale goes.....Papa and 5 other young and strong American soldiers were trying to clear a huge bolder from the middle of a path. He said they had been at it for 30 minutes and they had only managed to move it a few inches. He then goes on to tell how a small South Korean farmer came over and picked up the bolder all by his lonesome and moved it to the side of the road. This is where i always laugh and where Papa always insists that it really happened and that South Korean's were really strong people even if they were small. Haha I am now dating a 1/2 Korean man and i often wonder if Papa's love for the South Korean people, history and cultures have influenced my choices in love interest over the years. So, What are your Tall Tale stories from the wars across the world?
