Comments: I wanted to thank all those who keep up this web site and for all the help they have given me in attempting to find my uncle's remains who was MIA and presumed dead. The Army has been so helpful they even tracked me down 1500 miles from my last address to get a DNA sample and sent Incident reports, maps and one of his medals. When I first started this search I really thought it would take years to find out anything but was pleasantly surprised. And thank you to the retired pilot who had flown in Korean who called from California with helpful advice. Sorry I lost your number in my recent move.

Until recently, my grandfather hasn't spoke much about the war or the battles he fought in. He is a soft spoken and wonderful man; an integral part of our family.

I also would like to help him acquire missing medals. Any direction on my search would be wonderful and much appreciated.

Comments: After graduating from BIOC and the Army Ranger School in March 1956, as a 2nd Lt., I was assigned to the 17th Infantry Regt., George Company, as a Rifle Platoon Leader. I was subsequently assigned as Regt'l Asst. S-1, Courts and Boards Officer, after getting two successive acquittals in Special Courts Martial, by the CO, Col. Glenn Gardner, under Maj. Wolfinger, the then S-1.

As many of you may already know, I have been working on a video documentary of the 17th Infantry in the Korean War since October 2005, having announced same at the 2005 reunion of the 17th Infantry Assn. in Columbus, GA. Much of my research and video clips can be seen at my website at www.legaleagleproductions.com which includes streaming video clips, stories and photographs. My wife and I have done numerous interviews around the country of 17th Infantry Korean War vets, having just gathered much material at the Army War Museum in Carlisle, PA.

We are looking for veterans of the Korean War from the 17th who wish to tell their story on camera to preserve it for their children and grandchildren. This is a non-commercial venture, and is being done to preserve the history of the regiment in Korea for posterity.

We are also looking for any photographs and/or film taken during the Korean War to be used in the project. The project is expected to take upwards of two years, and the documentary will have a preliminary screening at the 2006 reunion of the 17th Infantry Association in Colorado Springs, CO, this coming Setember; and will likely have its world premiere at the 2007 reunion of the Association.

Please feel free to contact us by phone, letter or e-mail. We look forward to hearing from you. Your video interview will ultimately be contributed to the Army War Museum where you will become a part of military history.

I don't know which battln, regiment, etc. I attended his funeral back in July of 2001 and just got back from his wife's funeral which was this past Monday, May 22nd in Memphia, TN. I was given custody of my uncle's Army uniform jacket with all insiginias attached inlcuding his 7th Inf. Division patch, brass infantry lapel pins, and a pin on each shoulder of a badger-like animal with the words "Pro Patria" on them. Would love to know more about my uncle to allow me to tell his story to my children and to my tour groups. I am a DC tour guide who does trips for student groups from 8th - 12th grade. 99% of these students are totally clueless about the Korean War and I take that opportunity to tell them about it. If anyone of you knew my uncle, please give me a shout.

Lastly, thank all of you veterans for your serice to our country. You are very much appreciated.
