Susan Ahn Cuddy’s two brothers, Phillip and Ralph, also joined the military.
I was Korean blood. We were fighting the Japanese. I was American. I was very American, raised to love and honor America. There was actually no choice. I mean that was it. Why other women didn’t do it, I don’t know.
This is a photograph of Ahn and her brothers in uniform. It comes from the collection of Susan Ahn Cuddy and the Island Mountain Trading Co.
I think it’s a great testament to these patriots. But, the uniform of the middle brother clearly looks Army to me. So even though his heart might be Navy, it looks like his uniform is not.
Thanks for the catch! We’ve fixed it in the post.
