Summit will do little to heal old wounds between US, North Korea, Korean War veteran says
SAN ANTONIO – Nearly seven decades after 40,000 Americans were killed and 100,000 were wounded in the Korean War, a long overdue summit between the U.S. and North Korea is becoming a reality.
A San Antonio Army veteran who was in the Korean War and lost friends in combat said the summit will do little to heal old wounds, much less ease the tensions between the U.S. and North Korea.

What Army veteran Joe Almaraz, 88, is saying:
“You cannot have peace with those people (North Koreans). They’re savages. They’re savages.”

“Anybody that was in Korea when I was there, they will tell you the same thing I’m saying.”
