Bill Osborne, who grew up in Funkstown, has spearheaded an effort to rectify the absences of some veterans' names from the monument at Baltimore Street and Alt. U.S. 40. The Town Council voted 5-0 Monday night to allow a new monument to be installed at the town monument and for Osborne to collect money for it. Osborne said it will cost $850 and he already has $500 in pledges from the Funkstown American Legion, the legion's Last Man Standing Club and another donor.

Jesse Englehart was one of thousands of Marines who were pulling back from the Chosin Reservoir when he and a friend saw a clean poncho that looked peculiar lying on the frozen ground. He said the two walked toward the poncho and lifted it. “There was a Chinese soldier with a rifle,” the 81-year-old Englehart said recently from his Washington County home. “I'm not sure if I shot him or my buddy shot him. It's better if it's blocked out of your mind, I think.” He said his service during the Korean War was the first leg of a 22-year-career in the Marine Corps that led to two tours of duty in Vietnam and a post as security chief at Camp David.
