Army Sgt. 1st Class Paul Ondrey, 28, was killed Aug. 3, 1950 -- a week before his son turned 8. Andrew Ondrey still admires the military and wanted to attend the Air Force Academy at one time. But when he goes to his father's grave in Arlington National Cemetery outside Washington, D.C., the pain he has tried to bury rises to the surface. ''It hasn't changed,'' Ondrey says. ''It's still there.''
