Bernard Norman Renouf (84) was born in Biddeford, Maine. He had been unemployed before he enlisted in September 1950. During his service period, which lasted until 1954, he went to Mason, Korea and was stationed at South Korea from September 1950 to July 1953. He served in the army as a PFC upon entering, and a CPL before discharge, being in charge of the infantry as a machine gunner. He received the Combat Infantry Badge, POW medal, service medal, and bronze star for his commitments. He remembers his friends Kim Won Jong, Kim Won Buck, and Kim Hu San. After returning to the United States, and after he was discharged, Norman became a truck driver and a machinist. He says that the most memorable experience of the war included all the battles he participated in, and says what impacted most was “getting fired on” and being a Prisoner of War. His current hobbies include music and chess.
