FARGO – Sixty years gone, the Korean War still holds a grip on Sid Erstad.

The 85-year-old Ada, Minn., man got to Korea in 1952 and was an infantryman with the 5th Regimental Combat Team.


Erstad was one of about 100 Korean War vets honored Sunday at the Fargo Air Museum for their service in what has been called “The Forgotten War.”

But for Erstad, and others like him, it won’t be forgotten. It can’t be forgotten.
