Robert E. Foley, U.S. Army

It was common for B.A.R. riflemen, like Robert Foley, to carry his B.A.R. slung over his shoulder along with 12 20-round magazines of ammo along with three canteens, a 45-caliber pistol with 50 rounds and his 25-pound flak jacket. More than 61,000 B.A.R. rifles were ordered for the Korean War.
Robert E. Foley was born on June 5, 1931, in Dunkirk. His father Eugene was a dentist, and his mother Eleanor (Meister) was a homemaker who took care of the Foley's 425 Eagle St. home.
When hunting and fishing season arrived, you would catch Bob with good friends Dick Linden and Bill Dopler.
When the group grew older, the winters were a great time to go to the Boots & Saddle at the Dunkirk Hotel, where Robert was often found with his good friend Don Carlson.
With the Korean War in full gear, Robert decided to do his duty and on April 23, 1952, officially joined the U.S. government as Private Robert Foley. Instead of swimming off Dunkirk's breakwall, he was off to Fort Dix to begin his training to be part of an Army platoon ready to be sent to Korea.
Upon arriving in Korea, Robert was assigned to the 9th infantry division Charlie company. He was assigned the B.A.R., which was a funny sight because Robert was the smallest in the company carrying the heaviest small arms rifle.
While in Korea, Robert saw action in places called T-bone Hill and Old Baldy Hill. On Nov. 20 1952, while on an enemy search patrol, Robert was wounded in action by enemy mortars, receiving wounds on his left side. He was treated in a new medical combat surgical unit called M.A.S.H. unit.
After the initial surgery was performed, Robert was sent to an Army hospital in South Korea for more surgery. On April 20, he was sent to Osaka, Japan to the army's 279th general hospital.
Here Robert received skin grafts and more surgeries along with much needed therapy. Finally he was released back to duty. Word was out that the war was over and that a cease-fire was in effect. The Korean War officially ended in July 1953. Time seemed to stand still until in September 1953. While in Inchon, Foley received orders to head back to Fort Meade, Md. From here Robert received his honorable discharge.
After his return, he started classes at Syracuse University.
Robert Foley is another Korean veteran who did his job, came home and picked up where he started. He never talked about the Korean War.
Robert Foley fought a war that most people back home couldn't understand.
Robert Foley was another Korean veteran.
Robert Foley is a hero - and our hero of the week.
