‘All wars are civil wars, because all men are brothers.’
François Fénelon (1651–1715)
In a scene that could be out of The Twilight Zone—note the Confederate flag emblazoned kepi—Navy Hospital Corpsman Third Class Tilman J. Moses treats a wounded South Korean soldier on 5 April 1952. Moses retired from the Navy after 20 years service that included World War II and Korea. A Kentucky Colonel, he received three Bronze Stars for his combat action. He died at age 79 in 2005.
