Carroll F. Reusch


Carroll F. Reusch served in the United States Army during the Korean War. His regiment was garrisoned near the 38th Parallel in the Kumhwa Valley on the eastern edge of the Iron Triangle. He was a medic and not used to seeing soldiers so wounded. Over time, he developed into an accomplished medic, receiving the Bronze Star for his service. Carroll F. Reusch was in Korea when the Armistice was signed. After the Armistice, troops were still trained in the case of a possible invasion. Carroll F. Reusch has revisited Korea on two various occasions. The transformation the country has undergone makes him proud of his service.
