Kim Young-Oak, a Korean American, America's war hero

Kim Young-Oak
Found this out pretty late. But MSN selected very famous war heroes of US history for memorial day a few weeks ago. One of them, surprisingly and amazingly, was Kim Young-Oak, a second generation Korean American during Korean War.

He pretended that he didn't speak Korean so he could join infantry instead of becoming a translator. Over time, he became the first Asian American to command a combat battalion. Hell yeah!
