Korean war vet from Parkchester shares his thoughts on past and present wars

One veteran discusses the war on terror on a day designated to remember all those who died for their country.

Samuel Vasquez, 73, says on Veterans Day he remembers the 720 men in his infantry who died in the Korean War. Vasquez was the youngest sergeant in his infantry.

And on a day when he looks back on the past, Vasquez also looks at what's happening today. He says as a soldier he supports President Bush on the war against terror. One thing he says is that fighting the enemy now is quite different than it was back then in Korea.

As for his life now, Vasquez has a wife and children and is a lifelong resident of the Bronx. His line of work these days is getting paid to impersonate President Bush. He says he's looking to sign up with a talent agent to expand his career as a president look a like.
