occupation of Korea in 1946-47. But I am willing and interested in
helping locate anyone who has served at any time with the 13th Engineers.

Comments: My dad is 78 and in failing health. He enlisted at 16 or 17 and went through basic at Fort Dix, NJ. He remembers he was in the 13th Engineers Batilion and was in Korea and in Japan. I have 2 photos of him in uniform, one at completion of basic and one as a private first class. He does not have anything else to prove he was ever enlisted and trying to secure him veteran's benefits is like beating myself in the head with a brick. I have enlisted the help of our local VA office, the gentlemen there are wonderful but they are also at loss. I found this site and was hoping anyone would remember the soldier that ran the rollerskating rink, was a boxer and other recreational activities while enlisted. His name is John F. Santagata from Stamford, CT. He served in the late 40's, we're thinking he enlisted around 44 or 45 and out by 1948. My dad was a skinny guy, weighing maybe 125 lbs. I know he came home through Washington State, per his recollection.
Thank you.

He was in Korea as part of Company C 13th Engr Combat Bn, 7th Infantry
Division. His letters indicate that he was at Sopporo and another
location in Japan, Inchon, Seoul, Pusan, then somewhere near the
Manchurian Border, Chosin, Hamhung and Hungnam, and then on the
Consolation Navy Hospital Ship, Japan, and back to the states for a
medical discharge. Any help would be appreciated.

I have been told by one of the members of the 13th Combat Eng Bn, Eugene
R. Romer, that he remembers my father's name. Mr. Romer also suggested
that Roy Overly and Plifco (he didn't know Plifco's first name) might
also have known my father. I have been in touch with Mr. Haire to try
to find out if Mr. Overly and Mr. Plifco might still be alive. I
didn't find their names on the email list or on the KIA or MIA lists.

Wounded July 4, 1953 in Korea, Died July 15, 1953 in a Japanese hospital.

MY UNCLE FOUGHT AND DIED FOR THIS COUNTRY, BUT IS NOT RECOGNIZED AS KIA FOR THE KOREAN WAR. YOU WILL NOT FIND HIS NAME ON ANY MEMORIAL!!!!! WHY?

Chillicothe Gazette, July 28, 2003

Forgotten victim

As the names of those who died during the conflict were read, one was especially important to Tina Kutschbach, of Chillicothe. Her uncle, John E. Kutschbach, of Kinnikinnick, died on July 15, 1953, from wounds suffered in battle at the age of 22.

Tina has fought a battle of her own trying to get her uncle recognized. He was not listed as a war casualty in the National Archives. Tina said his name was omitted because he died in a hospital in Japan, not on the battlefield.

"It's just really sad that the government can't recognize someone just because of where he died," she said.

Tina said the United States was trying to keep the number of casualties down, so they didn't include people who died out of Korea. She said she has tried contacting veterans organizations and politicians to have John honored, but to no avail.

"It's either no one has interest, or no one can do anything," she said.
