The Army Hour - 1963 "Korea, A Decade of Courage"
AFKN was an Army "Meritorious Unit". Everyone was authorized an additional ribbon while there. The ribbon was authorized because of the war coverage. Troops went to the field with huge tube powered recorders. I've heard short clips of this before but this is the most complete version that I've ever heard.
The Army Hour was on NBC during WWII, ending up on Mutual by the 1960s.
