Hello,

My name is Ruby Alexandra Beloz. I've dedicated this website to my father's memory by honoring his military service to our country in WW II Japan and in the Korean Conflict.

I first started building web pages right after my dad (Rosendo F. Beloz) passed away on October 12th, 1994 of lung cancer.

My Dad served in WW II in Japan and in the Korean Conflict (The Forgotten War) as it was called back then.

Before I redesigned MyDadIsAVet.com website the Hit-Counter had well over 40,000 visitors.

I started this website to see if could find some of my Dad’s old Army buddies from the 187th Airborne sort of a project. I never dreamed I would find all of his old Army buddies.

My dad was a Paratrooper that served in Japan with the 11th AB during WW II and he also served with the 187th Airborne in Company “C.” in the Korean Conflict.

I am very please to report back that my mission was accomplished. I got to meet most of my Dad’s old Army buddies by posting a letter in the 187th AB magazine called the “Rakkasan” (It means: Umbrella in the sky in Japanese).

I was able to tell my dad's buddies who my father was and share with them what kind of man he became after he left Japan and Korea.

I began this journey of learning about my Dad’s military service, what it meant to be Paratrooper and an infantry soldier in the Korean Conflict.

I learned how the soldiers survived the freezing temperatures in the snow and how they came home with untreated SHELL SHOCK! (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).

I have met a whole family of friends online that have served our country and are presently serving our country today all over the world.

I started writing poetry about the stories that my father and Veterans would share with me about their experiences in battle and the battle they all faced after the War ended when they came home to their families and society.

When my dad came home from Korea he faced another battle at home where he had to live among the living and his new family, only there were no guns, tanks or bombs just the constant memory of death and the years of tormented silence because real men never complained or talk about what happened to them overseas.

Yes my dad was one of those real men that were not able to get help until the end of the Vietnam WAR.

I hope you enjoyed your stay here and I thank you for stopping by.

GOD bless AMERICA. Let's support our TROOPS,  now and after the WAR ends. Let no Soldier come home without being thanked by his or her fellow AMERICANS! Let's always be reminded that these good men and women have given so much of their lives for our FREEDOM. Please remember to say only two kind words and let it come from your heart simply say "THANK YOU."

Sincerely,
Ruby Alexandra Beloz
Proud Daughter Of A WW II and Korean WAR Veteran.

A Tribute to Veterans
by Jerry Calow

In Vietnam, Korea and World Wars Past
Our Men Fought Bravely so Freedom Would Last
Conditions Where Not Always Best They Could Be
Fighting a Foe You Could Not Always See:
From Mountain Highs to Valley Lows
  From Jungle Drops to Desert Patrols
Our Sinewy Sons Were Sent Over Seas
Far From Their Families And Far From Their Dreams
They Never Wrote Letters Of Hardships Despair
Only Of Love, Yearning That One Day Soon:
They Would Come Home, They Would Resume
  And Carry On With The Rest of Their Lives

The P.O.W.¹S Stood Steadfast
Against the Indignities And Cruelties Of War
They Could Not Have Lasted as Long as They Did
If They Had Relinquished Their Hope That Some Day:
  They Would Come Home, They Would Resume
  And Carry On the Rest Of Their Lives
Medics, Nurses, and Chaplains Alike
Did What They Needed To Bring Back Life
They Served Our Forces From Day Into Night
Not Questioning If They Would Survive:

  They Mended Bones And Bodies Too,
  They Soothed the Spirits of Dying Souls
And for Those M.I.A¹S, Who Were Left Behind
We Echo This Message Across the Seas
We Will search For as Long As It Takes
You¹re Not Forgotten And Will Always Be:

  In Our Hearts, In Our Prayers,
  In Our Minds For All Time

A Moment of Silence, a Moment of Summons
Is Their Deliverance of Body And Soul
To a Sacred Place That We All Know
Deep In the Shrines of Our Soul:

  In Our Hearts, In Our Prayers
  In Our Minds For All Time

INTERLUDE:
    GOLD STAR MOTHERS GRIEVE: ENDLESSLY,
    ENDLESSLY, ENDLESSLY.......
These Immortalized Soldiers Whose Bravery Abounds
They¹re Our Husbands, Fathers, and Sons
They Enlisted For the Duty at Hand
To Serve the Cause of Country and Land:

  They Had Honor, They Had Valor,
  They Found Glory That Change Them Forever

Men Standing Tall and Proud They be
A Country Behind Them in a Solemn Sea
So Let the Flags of Freedom Fly
Unfurled in Their Majesty High:
In the Sun, In the Rain
  In the Winds Across This Land

Years of Tears Has Brought Us Here
Gathering Around to Hear This Sound
So Let the Flags of Freedom Fly
Unfurled in Their Majesty High:

  In the Sun, In the Rain,
  In the Winds Across This Land

Non Nobis Domine Non Nobis = Not to us, Lord, not to us. All glory to God
Be without fear in the face of your enemies
Be brave and upright that GOD may love thee
Speak the truth even if it leads to your death
Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong
~~ That is your oath~~
