This book contains a large number of stories that were told to me as a young boy growing-up in Tennessee about the many adventures that my father experienced while serving in the United States Navy. Many of these stories cover specific events that my father participated in during the Korean Armed Conflict. The events and opinions contained within the individual stories represent those verbalized by my father. These stories contain rich and colorful language, and they reflect a United States Navy sailor's life during the mid-20th Century. My father, like all good story tellers, molded the events and experiences from his life into his stories to captivate the audience as well as create a larger than life version of what took place. Collectively, these stories provide insight into the thoughts and concerns of the generation of Americans that fought in the Korean Armed Conflict.

About the Author:

James Carl Duncan grew up in the rolling hills of middle Tennessee. He graduated as the Valedictorian of his high school class in 1973. In 1977, Mr. Duncan graduated "with highest honors" from the University of Tennessee at Martin with a Bachelor of Science degree in History and a minor in Mathematics. He received the History Award for having the highest grade point in his major. Mr. Duncan graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Law in Knoxville, Tennessee with a J.D. degree in 1981. He is a member of the state bar of Tennessee, and he has been admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court; United States Court of Military Appeals (now the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces); the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals; and the Federal District Court for the Western District of Tennessee. Mr. Duncan entered the U.S. Marine Corps through Officer Candidate School (OCS) at Quantico, Virginia. He was commissioned after completing OCS in December 1982. In 1983, he completed Naval Justice School, and he was certified as a Judge Advocate in the U.S. Marine Corps. Mr. Duncan progressed through the ranks in the Marine Corps from Second Lieutenant to Lieutenant Colonel. In 1988, Lieutenant Colonel Duncan was selected for the Special Education Program (SEP). Under SEP, he attended George Washington University and graduated "with highest honors" receiving a Masters of Law Degree in International Law in 1989. While assigned to the Naval War College, Lieutenant Colonel Duncan served as the editor of the Blue Book Series. In this capacity, he worked on a large number of Blue Books, but the most well known of these was Volume 73, Annotated Supplement to the Commander's Handbook on the Law of Naval Operations. He also wrote and published, A Primer on the Employment of Non-Lethal Weapons in the Naval Law Review and The Commander's Role in Developing the Rules of Engagement in the Naval War College Review. Lieutenant Colonel Duncan served over 28 years in the Marine Corps before retiring on January 1, 2011. After retiring Mr. Duncan returned to his home in Perry County, Tennessee, where to his family's surprise, he wrote a children's book, Lucy the Colt that Went to the Belmont Stakes. He was inspired to write this book after watching his grandson play with two toy horses he received for Christmas.
