Carl Hatmaker enlisted at 17 and was sent to fight in the Korean War

Standard

Historians call the Korean War the forgotten war, but for those who were there they’ll never forget that part of their life. In the Price of Freedom, we have the story of a Korean War veteran who grew up in a small town in East Tennessee and joined the Army when he was 17. Carl Hatmaker grew up in what was then called Lake City, Tennessee. It’s now called Rocky Top. He enlisted in the Army in 1949. Just before the Korean War started he was stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
