Just a few spelling corrections of the names of those two heroes who were fallen in Korea.
They are Miktat Uluünlü and Lütfü Bilgin.
Both of them may rest in peace...

They met after 60 years. Korean lady Sin Sen Nim met her step father who found her at a ruined and burned village 60 years later. NCO Master Sergeant Süleyman Dilbirliği from Turkish Brigade found her in a burned and ruined dwelling crying, sick and hungry. All the inhabitants of the village were found killed by comunist Koreans. MS Dilbirliği cared her, fed her. Later she was given to the caring hands of Turkish School "Ankara" which was established by the order of General Tahsin Yazıcı. MSDilbirliği gave her a Turkish name "Ayla" Sin Sen Nim married and have 2 children. Her husbend died recently.
TS's Nota: Turkey not only fought at Korea but cared the orphans and established a school for them. But on the other hand the great propaganda of USA and Britain showed the whole world with movies that they were caring the orphhans. The Turk needs no propoganda. Turks deeds are great.

For this documentary, a Turkish military historian provided a two-hour long color footage of the Turkish brigade during the summer of 1951. I didn't know that such a long color footage on the Turkish brigade exists. It was filmed by a Turkish officer and has not been made public until today, the 60th anniversay of the Korean War.
