Comments: My dad Irwin J. ("Buzz") Buckner Jr. passed away in 1976, back when I was a teenager -- which is prety much long before most kids start really wondering and asking about their parents' lives before we were born. The only connections I have to his service in Korea are some old photos from when he was there and a handmade, hand-engraved brass belt buckle ("U.S. Army 809th Korea 52 53"). If there's anyone out there who might've known my dad, please contact me via e-mail. I'd really like to know about some of your recollections of him and things as they were when you were in Korea.

Thanks a bunch.

Scott
