    When back in June 2015 Donald Trump announced he was running for president, he said during his speech, “I will find the General Patton or I will find General MacArthur. I will find the right guy. I will find the guy that’s going to take that military and make it really work.” Since then, Trump has frequently mentioned Douglas MacArthur in his speeches. It is worth discussing his importance in American history, especially as we are approaching the 66th anniversary of Battle of Inchon. While MacArthur’s greatest achievement was the creation of modern Japan, the Inchon landing on September 15,...

    On September 15, 1950 Joint Task Force Seven, with more than 320 warships including 4 aircraft carriers, carried the nearly 70,000 man strong force of X Corps into the dangerous tides of Inchon harbor. Preceded by heavy naval bombardment and under a blanket of fighting aircraft, led by the veteran 5th Marines, elements of the 1st Marine Division were landed 100 miles behind the North Korean lines and fought their way on to take Seoul, by 9/25. The newly reinforced 7th Infantry Division protected its flank. The stroke was decisive.

    Naval Station Ingleside ship will be used for target practice David Fix knows the USS Inchon has served its time. He knows the Navy can't hold onto it forever. But that doesn't keep him from crying when he thinks about it going down - crying so much that he can't even utter the words to memorialize it. Like most sailors, Fix of Lancaster, Pa., who served aboard the Inchon from 1981 to 1983, remembers the ship and his time aboard it with fondness. The USS Inchon, formerly a centerpiece of the Mine Warfare Command fleet in the U.S. Navy, is...
