    Can't say I ever remember learning that in school. Probably those who do more studying of history know but apparently it wasn't deemed important enough to teach to most of us. What a shame especially for those brave men and their families that were directly involved.

    Pisses me off that I was never taught this. I always believed that US and Russian troops had never faced each other in battle.

    Yes. New information for me too, and I have had a LOT of formal history education and have been a student of history my entire adult life.

    me too, WHY was this never taught to us? why do we waste time teaching kids "heather has two mommies" when they should be teaching better history, knowing about this might also make for a better understanding of the contempt some other countries peoples might have for the USA, even though MOST still want to come here

    This should not surprise really....considering the US, has been at War with someone/entity,every day since the end of the American Civil War.

    Time for someone in Authority,should build a Memorial to these Servicemen who survived and those who gave the Greatest Sacrifice,their Lives...st

    Makes me wonder why they didn't. Seems very strange like a conspiracy.
