Eugene Robinson started his military career in the U.S. Army back in 1950. He was a member of one of the first units sent to Korea.
"Our unit had one of the first major battles over there in 1950," said Robinson. "Little children were out there in the cold trying to make it. You didn't know the North from the South. You didn't know who was who. It was just a mess."
In fact, Robinson got the Purple Heart after being injured in two places.
"I was in the infantry so I was right up front. At the time we went over there, it was getting to be winter time. We didn't have any sleeping bags like they have now. We just had that blanket type. It got cold over there."
The Elton native stayed in the Army and eventually saw two tours of duty in Vietnam. Robinson started a tradition. All 7 of his sons and several of his grandchildren are serving, or have served in the military.
"Oh, it makes me feel great. I just feel. I can't explain it. Brings to your eyes most of the time."
One good thing about it, as it stands right now, I didn't have anybody killed.
