Comments: I am hunting information for a friend of our family,
B F Donaldson. His tank number was 68 or 69. He
received the Bronze Star with Valor for coming to the
rescue of another tank that got behind enemy lines.
He has stories of himself, a man from Ohio whose last
name was Green or Greene, and a man whose last name
was Coots (spelling?). His ranking was E7 when he
left Korea. Would appreciate ANY information that
might help Mr. Donaldson locate anyone he fought with.
