About this Item

Glued binding. [24], 177, [3] p. Illustrations, black & white. Maps. Cover has slight wear and soiling. EXCITEMENT: Shot At And Missed is one Marine's recollections of the experiences of the Marines of F-2-5 in Korea in 1951-52. Ken Lonn, a Mortar/Rockets Section Chief during that conflict, recalls the good times and the not so good times, the laughs and the misery, the struggles and the accomplishments. This book will take the reader on an exciting journey from hometown U.S.A., through 'boot camp' and a year of combat, from a veteran's first person view of the realities of war. Ken Lonn returned from the Korean War and ultimately became a noted sculptor/artist. From an on-line posting: "Over the past five plus decades, Ken has created sculptures ranging from one foot tall Marines dashing through enemy fire, a fisherman pulling his nets, a lineman atop a pole and a dairy maid carrying her milk pails, to life-size renditions of persons to a 12 1/2 foot tall monument he created and built to honor the 91 miners who died in the Sunshine Mine (Kellogg, Idaho) mining disaster in 1972. His sculptures can be seen from coast to coast, from the sculpture in front of the Rockville, Maryland government building, to the Miller Brewing Company's Milwaukee headquarters and the County Courthouse in Everett, Washington.".
