TIGER CALLED TO GLORY Martin Joseph Tullio was called to Glory today (October 19, 2015) at 7:43 AM.  He was at his home at 38509-251stPlace S.E. Emumclaw, WA 98022-6808.

Martin was a member of A Company, 34th Infantry Regiment of the 24thInfantry Division and went with his unit from Japan to Korea during the first week of fighting in that war in July 1950.  At the time he was a Private of Infantry and was released at a Private First Class. Martin (Marty) was captured by elements of the North Korean Army on July 10, 1950 in South Korea.  He was a Prisoner of War for over 37 months and was released on August 30, 1953. He was held by both the North Koreans and later by the Chinese Army.  He was on the Tiger Death March where 89 were shot to death.  Marty saw 58% of the Tiger Survivors perish mostly under the North Koreans.

Martin is gone from us now to a better place I am sure.  He will join other Tiger Survivors and help build our encampment in Glory. RIP Martin Tullio a great friend in life. Shorty the...
