Owner's Description

Blue Bolt Weird Tales #116 opens up with a horror story by Jay Disbrow that tells the story of Corporal Willy Jacks and his encounter with the Ghostly Guardians of the Korean War. Willy, on patrol with his platoon, comes under intense enemy fire. Soon all of Willy’s comrades are killed and Willy himself is rendered unconscious. Willy awakens hours later and begins to make his way back across enemy lines. Along the way, he learns of an imminent attack by the Red army and is gravely wounded trying to warn the Marines of the surprise attack. He is about to give up when a group of ghostly figures visits him while he lays wounded on the battle field. They tell Willy that they are soldiers that have given their life in the pursuit of freedom and that he must do the same to save a Marine regiment from certain death. Willy, inspired by the Ghostly Guardians, rallies his courage and detonates a grenade that ends his life but warns the Marines of the pending attack. The story ends with Willy learning that, through his sacrifice, his spirit will now be accepted into the hallowed ranks of the Ghostly Guardians.
