    Comments: I am seeking any and all information on Sgt. Windol M. Hazlett of B Company, 21st Infantry. He was one of the first soldiers in Korea on July 3, 1950 with the 24th Division. Like many others of this unit, he received the Bronze Star for service from July 3 through November 2. He was wounded in action when he was shot in the left hand on February 6, 1951. I believe this would have been on Hill 296 in the vicinity of the Han River.

    I have Sgt. Hazlett's uniform and would like to learn everything I can about him. I have not found a photograph of him yet and would greatly appreciate it. I hope someone out there remembers him. Thank you!

    Comments: Friends of Doug Haag should know that in June 2012 his remains were found by a
    South Korean military team looking for their own war dead. Doug was found in a grave
    with the remains of another missing soldier, and a preliminary identification was made
    based on his 2nd Lt. insignia that was recovered.

    Subsequent DNA analysis in Honolulu, Hawaii confirmed his identity.

    On June 1, 2013, Doug was buried with full military honors in Cave Hill Cemetery, in his
    home town of Louisville KY. He was laid to rest at the cenotaph placed by his mother
    after he vanished during the battle of Chonui more than 60 years ago. Present were
    Doug's sister and brother and many family members as well as several friends. His
    obituary may be viewed here (at least for now):
    http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/louisville/obituary.aspx?pid=165037676

    We are personally indebted to the Barker brothers and all members of the Korean War
    Project who helped us first locate convincing evidence that he had been killed in battle
    (and not imprisoned) back in 1997, more than a decade before his remains were
    actually found. Your kindness and dedication to these forgotten veterans has made
    an immense, positive impact on our family. We cannot thank you enough.

    Doug's gravestone reads in part:
    He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have died that freedom might live and
    grow and increase its blessings.

    Comments: On the rainy morning of 5 July 1950 Task Force Smith met the North Korean invaders just south of the town of Osan in South Korea. TFS was comprised of elements of the 24th Infantry Division from the island of Kyushu, Japan, the closest ground combat unit to Korea. TFS numbered approximately 450 men including
    supporting artillery.

    Outmanned to 20,000 NK combat-season veterans,
    outgunned w/ 2.36 bazaookas that failed to work often against soviet made T-34 tanks, supplied w/ exceptionally poor communications, w/ weapons that failed to function, the 24th Infantry Division paid in blood and lives for the delaying action they performed. God bless the 24th Infantry Division.

    Read their heroic actions in Roy Appleman's South to the Naktong, North to the Yalu.
