Here is a web page specific to the KWVR reunion, with more information about the books. It refers back to this page for a detailed Table of Contents of the recorded sessions.
These are the recordings and transcriptions of the Korean War Veterans Reunion held in Mesquite NV from March 22 through March 26, 2006.
The 8-digit numbers in the title are dates, in the form year, month, day YYYYMMDD
The two sessions of one day are identified as “am” or “pm.
The 2 digit numbers are just sequence numbers, to keep the files in the right order
A few titles include the type of remarks being recorded. If the type of remarks is not included, then it is a “war story, the meat of the reunion.
In the Track number, the letters indicate the beginning of each individual CD.
As most of you that attended the reunion know, there were a number of technical difficulties encountered with the PA system. Fortunately, most of them did not affect the recording of the sessions. I fumbled and didn’t save Pat Rudolph’s little story of Ron’s glasses on the raft trip. And for the same reason, I missed a couple lines of Lloyd Bone’s poem, but he was kind enough to re-record those lines for me and I spliced them in. However, on Saturday morning, some of Bob Farring’s introductory remarks, and approximately half of Paul Uhm’s very interesting talk about the early days in Korea were not recorded.
Oh, and Pat is kind too. But I didn’t ask her to re-record her story, because I’d missed it all, and wouldn’t have be able to re-record it with the peals of laughter interspersed. Maybe I should have saved this comment for the next reunion.
Transcriptions of these audio recordings are also available.
Digitally recorded to hard disk using an M-Audio Mobile Pre to convert the analog microphone signal to digital.
