First Bank provided a well-deserved tribute to First Sergeant Harry Hope at the St. Louis Blues game. With a total of 38 years of service in the military, Hope has undeniably served his country well. Considered one of the “Chosin Few” of the Korean War, having survived what is considered one of America’s toughest battles (Battle of the Chosin Reservoir), his unit relentlessly fought the enemy for days in subfreezing temps, and with rations and ammo running low. A misunderstanding led to airdrops of Tootsie Rolls, and Hope credits the chocolate candies with helping them survive. Read the whole story right here and why he continues to carry them today.
