Comments: I am responding to a message about my father posted by Tom Jantsch whose
father may
have had personal experiences with my father while in Korea. I just saw this
today after receiving a letter from my relatives written by my dad in 1950. He had
just lost his brother and was heart broken while on the front lines. I would love to
talk with you. Feeling quite blue, but hopeful as I think of him.
