Korean War memorial is a historical photoshop horror

A new Korean War monument was unveiled on Memorial Day in Chillicothe, Ohio—an 8- by 6-foot black monolith etched with a collage of war scenes and the names of local soldiers fallen in that war. It’s also a disgraceful insult to every American serviceman who fought in Korea and every other war.

If you haven’t noticed yet, most of these scenes are not from the Korean War. The monolith—made by some Egyptian company for $21,550—includes everything from Desert Storm soldiers to F-16s fighter jets.

Worse yet, even before it was unveiled, people were telling them what a soup sandwich it was.

Look, Chillicothe, OH, it’s good that you wanted to commemorate your soldiers for the Forgotten War, but how about putting in maybe five minutes on Google Image Search to find some good pictures?

  1. Forgive my blogging ignorance, but what exactly is with all the “Reblogged this on…” comments? Are these just attempts to pull readers somewhere else, or something more meaningful? If the latter, I’m not getting it.

    1. Some people might not have this blog on their radar. By reblogging, some of their readers might visit this blog and become new aficionados of BTHBTS. HTH’s.

    2. When another wordpress blogger wants to share a post, his toolbar that he sees when reading my blog allows him to simply hit “reblog” rather than having to cut and paste and hyperlink and all that. It publishes an excerpt of my post and a hyperlink on his blog. It’s just a way of sharing. The notification is just a way of letting me (and the reader) know that it is out there. And of course, if you want to see what thatmrguy or gunny g write about, there’s a handy link to their blog in my comments now.

      I rarely do it, but it certainly doesn’t bother me when someone else reblogs my stuff. It helps drive traffic here. And I’m a bit of a clickwhore.

    3. Thank you for asking the question…I too was foggy on the technique. I guessed but did not know.
