Earl Seelow Obituary News: In Honour of Korean War Veteran Earl Seelow

We honor a true American hero whose bravery and devotion to duty embodied the greatest principles of military service by paying respect to Earl’s incredible service and sacrifice. When Earl was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1952 at the age of 20, he started a journey that would change his life forever and leave a lasting impression on our country’s history. Let us pause to respect Earl’s legacy, celebrate his accomplishments, and offer our sincere gratitude for his selfless devotion to our nation as we consider his incredible journey and unshakable commitment to defending freedom and democracy.

In 1952, Earl turned 20 years old, and his military career officially started when he was drafted into the American Army. Earl fearlessly answered the call to serve his country, leaving behind the comforts of home to set out on a trip into the unknown, all while carrying a strong feeling of duty and patriotism in his heart. He had no idea that his service would bring him to the front lines of the Korean War, one of the most important wars in contemporary history.

After being sent to Korea in 1953, Earl was thrown into the center of the fighting while attached to the 2nd Infantry Division, 9th Regiment, Easy Company, and 4th Platoon. Earl was instrumental in protecting liberty and democracy from the forces of oppression and tyranny as a gunner on a 57 recoilless rifle. He was deployed to the Kumhwa Valley for front-line service, where he valiantly faced the horrors of battle on what was known as the Boomerang.

Earl’s remarkable bravery and commitment during his time in Korea won him the respect and admiration of his superiors and other soldiers. Earl was recognized for his bravery and selflessness with multiple honors and decorations, such as the Combat Infantry Badge, the ROK Presidential Unit Emblem, the United Nations Service Medal, the Korean Service Medal with two Bronze Service Stars, the U.S. Army Good Conduct Ribbon, and the Korean Government War Service Award. These accolades provide witness to Earl’s valor and dedication to defending democracy and freedom.

Serving in Korea wasn’t just a part of Earl’s life; it was a pivotal event that changed the path of history and left a lasting legacy of selflessness and dedication. His bravery in the face of opposition, his unshakable loyalty to his fellow soldiers, and his unflinching commitment to duty perfectly capture the spirit of what it means to be an American hero. Even though hostilities may have ceased when Earl’s time on the front lines ended, everyone who knew him will always cherish and remember his legacy of service.

Let us give Earl our sincere gratitude for his noble sacrifice and unflinching dedication to safeguarding our freedom and way of life as we honor his life and service. In keeping with the principles he so valiantly fought for, let us respect his memory and remember his heroism, valor, and dedication to duty. Even though Earl is no longer with us, his spirit endures in the hearts of everyone who knew him and will continue to inspire and encourage future generations.

We honor a great American hero whose heroism and sacrifice will never be forgotten as we wish Earl farewell. Earl’s legacy will live as a tribute to the enduring spirit of courage, honor, and patriotism that defines the men and women who serve in our nation’s armed services, despite the passing of time and the fading of memories. I pray that his memory will always be a benefit to us all and that we will never forget the sacrifices that Earl and many others made to protect our democracy and freedom. Peace be with you, Earl. Your legacy will live on forever, and we will always remember the service you provided.
