Looking back on his military service on Monday, Clayton Bradshaw had plenty of memories to sift through. The 81-year-old veteran served in the U.S. Army in Korea in 1951 and then in the National Guard for four years. In Korea, Bradshaw served as an engineer tasked with building bridges and widening roads. When he arrived overseas, he said it was January and 30 degrees below zero outside.
