My Dad, Louis Clifford Mancill moving out with the troops to Korea in 1950. His Father & Mother, Elliott Devocious Mancill & Cora Lee Wilson Mancill, his wife, Myrtle Marie (Elder) Mancill and son, Carl Louis Mancill, were there to see him off, in Foley, Alabama. He entered the U.S. ARMY as a Private in World War II, and he also fought in the Korean War and was advanced to Sergeant. He was one of the cooks on the front lines feeding our troops. He told me that sometimes he had to move the mess hall three or four times a day with the fighting. He played the guitar by ear and sung for his buddies. He was a proud World War II and Korean War veteran.
