Gilbert Hauffels began completing his compulsory military service in the Luxembourg army as the Korean War unfolded. Luxembourg students had not learned about Korea in school, so he was curious rather than afraid as he arrived to fight as a machine gunner in 1952. While fighting at White Horse Hill, he watched soldiers die in artillery barrages. Since the war, Gilbert Hauffels has read extensively about Japanese occupation throughout Asia, and he thinks stronger apologies for atrocities are in order. Having returned to Korea more than ten times, he feels the sacrifice was worth it.
