August 10, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — With the Korean War commemorating its 60th anniversary July 27, for veteran Richard Bianco, there was only one thing to do — memorialize it in the form of a display in his apartment at Mahoning Towers in Punxsutawney.

“I wanted to do this for a long time,” he said.

“(The Korean War) is ‘the forgotten war,’” he added, borrowing a phrase that is frequently used to describe the event.

When asked if people seemed to know much about the war, he said, “They don’t, but I speak up.”
