Rangel: Do more to end the ‘cancer’ of North Korea

Veteran congressman suggests everything from diplomacy to 'information barrage' to end division

When Charles B. Rangel volunteered to fight North Korean forces in 1950 as a U.S. Army infantryman, little did he know that 66 years later he would still be waiting for an end to the war that changed his life.

Early in his deployment, his fearless leadership of his all-Black artillery unit during a heavy Chinese assault north of Pyongyang saved 40 of his fellow soldiers, paving the way for military awards and recognition as a war hero.
