Robert Auletti (79) was born in Brooklyn, NY on April 4, 1933. He was working as a longshoreman before he enlisted. His military service was carried out from May 22, 1950 to April 14, 1953. During his service period, he went to Incheon, Korea, and was stationed all over Korea – Norla, Varlos Hills, and White Horse Mountain – from April 4, 1952 to April 4, 1953. He served in the 3rd Infantry Division as a Sergeant First Class until his discharge. He was the Infantry Platoon Sergeant, and participated in various battles. After returning to the United States, he worked, and after his discharge, he became head foreman on the Brooklyn piers. His most memorable experience from the war was coming home without injury, and what impacted him the most was Korea’s recovery after the war and transformation into a thriving country, which made him feel that the war was not in vain.
