Comments: Hello to you all. I am posting on this site to look for help or suggestions on selling a vintage army search light. My father passed away in 2004 and we are sadly dispursing is worldly possesions. I use to visit a website for army search light enthusiest but it appears to be non existant. Does anybody have an idea of where I can go to inform enthusiests that this light is for sale. It has burning rods and extra parts, all the original manuals and all the glass is still intact. The light was used as an attaction for local events and last it was ran was maybe 3 years ago. Though it maybe needs some new wires, it still is very salvagable and will run. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Comments: My Father was Donald Murray, he was from a small town in Nebraska, he was there from Jan. or Feb. of 50' or 51' to Feb. of 51' or 52'. I would like to find anyone that served with him in Korea - we found his military papers when he died and said he had four bronze stars but we have never seen them. I would like to know if anyone out of the same unit received theirs, and if not could you please tell my how we can go about receiving my Dads' bronze stars.
