Twin vets return to South Korea

Twins Ray and Roy Brinkley were among 170 American and Belgian Korean War veterans and their guests who traveled to South Korea last month to take part in 60th anniversary activities related to the outbreak of hostilities. They served in the 2nd Infantry Division, though in separate units, in the same battles. ’They looked after us and treated us like heroes. People stopped us on the street to thank us for our service,’ said Roy. Along with the Brinkley twins, now 80, Ray’s daughter Rhonda Toon and son-in-law Dr. Aaron Buice took a 14 hour Korean Air flight to the country, landing in the daylight amid a heat wave.
