Comments: I am trying to find out what Company, Battalion and Regiment my dad served in from September 1948 through July 1952, and where he was discharged. I need the information for veterans benefits for my mom. I know he was in the 7th infantry division, 57th battalion. I assume 7th infantry division is the Company but I do not know what Regiment. Any help would be appreciated.

Comments: Hi,
I'm looking for any information on "Jerry the Tramp". That is how he
signed his paintings. He was a soldier
that served in Korea along with my dad, Chaplain Gerald Weaver in
1953 or so. He used to paint naked ladies on the lockers for the
soldiers.

My dad got tired of seeing all the scantily clad paintings, so
he asked him to paint something more inspiring. Jerry painted a head
of Christ, which my dad used to decorate the chapel tent used out in
the "field" of Korea. My dad was stationed near the 38th parallel with
the 57th field artillery of the 7th Infantry Division.

When he came back to the USA, he had the painting hanging in his
office study for many years. He finally gave the painting to me a few
years ago, but, I don't have any place for it. I'm an artist myself and
don't have enough room for my own paintings.

My dad is 91 years old now and still doing well. I asked him if he
knew more about Jerry the Tramp, and he didn't remember his real
name, or where he might be now.

I would like to sell the painting of his head of Christ, but, wanted to
know the historic story about it. If you know anything about "Jerry,
the Tramp" soldier artist, please contact me!

Comments: Major Albert Standish graduated from the same high school that I did in Akron, OH. I have been working on a memorial to the men from the neighborhood that were killed in the military. If anyone would happen to have a photo of him or containing him I would like to include it in the memorial. Also any info regarding the circumstances of his death. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
