Comments: I am looking for any info that anyone would have on Charles Johnson and Joe Henry. Charles Johnson is my grandfather and he is ver sick now and has never really talked about his time in the war. It really always just upset him to much to discuss it. All he would talk about was a really good friend of his in the unit - Joe Henry. I would love to find out about Joe Henry so that I could share it with my grandfather. Please if anyone knows anything about him, please contact me.

Comments: During the last 4 months of my tour I was involved in two different situations. I picked up an American soldier hanging from a tree in Korea, he was found by the MPs. This happened close to Camp Stanley. I am trying to find out this soldier's name - if there is anyone out there having a relative die in Korea in the latter part of 1971, please contact me.
The other incident involved a murder -shooting at an NCO club - Camp Stanley sometime between September - November 1971. A US soldier shot a 1rst sergeant with an M16 rifle. I was one of the medics on the scene. I had occasional contact with this first sergeant. Again - I am trying to find out his name. If you have any information please contact me. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Comments: My father-in-law, Bayne O. Renfro, passed away a year ago, never having said very much about his time in Korea. His service records were apparently destroyed in a fire at ARPERCEN in the 70's; they have been no help. From what we have been able to piece together, we know he was a Corpsman with the 2ND Infantry Division, and may have been on or near the front during the Chinese crossing of the Yalu River. Anyone who remembers him or has info, it would be appreciated by his family. Although he was a pretty quiet man, he had a mischievous streak wider than the DMZ, and his family can't help but wonder what he was like all those years ago. Thank you.
