This restrictive form of money was used to pay service members in Korea.

On Wednesday, April 25, at 6 p.m., the Veterans History Museum of the Carolinas will show "Pork Chop Hill." Gregory Peck heads an all-star cast in this true re-enactment of the terrifying Korean War battle that brilliantly pulls the viewer into the crossfire that surrounds American foot soldiers.

The battle took place at the end of the Korean Conflict and really had no tactical value, but its possession provided leverage at the armistice talks taking place at Panmunjom. The soldiers know they're pawns in the negotiating process. That, plus the announcements by the communist Chinese over a loudspeaker, plays with their minds to the point where their fighting ability is affected. Can Clemons' leadership keep them functioning as a fighting force to capture Pork Chop Hill? Watch it to find out.

Bring your family and friends to the Veterans History Museum of the Carolinas at 21 E. Main St. beside the courthouse for free popcorn and an action movie that's interesting and entertaining. Call 884-2141 for more information, to purchase an Honor Wall plaque to honor your veteran, or to schedule a museum tour for your group.

Admission is free to the Veterans History Museum of the Carolinas. It's open Wednesday – Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, visit http://www.theveteransmuseum.org.
