MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Charles Pollack Sr. was in a tank outfit in the Alabama National Guard when his unit was mobilized in 1950, but no one in the company had ever seen a tank.

 

 

Pollack and other veterans are marking the 63rd anniversary of North Korea's invasion of South Korea.

In high school Pollack joined the 31st Infantry Division, the famed Dixie Division, so named because most of its members were from Alabama and Mississippi. There, he was assigned to the 200th Tank Company. When the Guard unit was mobilized, the company was assigned to the 25th Infantry Division, 89th Tank Battalion.
