A forgotten man in a forgotten war, Junior Raymond “J.R.” McDowell is finally being recognized locally for making the ultimate sacrifice for his country during the Korean War. McDowell, a Crittenden County native, was killed early in the war that started when communist forces from North Korea invaded South Korea in the summer of 1950. Until just weeks ago, his name had not been among those engraved on granite crosses at the Mapleview Cemetery war memorial in Marion.
