the Chinese team there. I am working on a TV documentary about
the Korean War and need more info. We interviewed Mr. Kao, the
sole survivor of the team who is still around. He and others
(most have passed away) were recruited into the 8240 unit from
the POW camps during the war. They were fooer Nationalist
troopers in China, not Communists. Mr. Kao later went to Taiwan
and came to the States. He is now in San Francisco and has a
photo taken with the team and with the American instructors of
that unit. If you are the one, please call me at 202-382-5633

Comments: Ladies/Gentlemen: I am seeking information on my father, Cpl Robert Julian Rogers from Glen Morgan, Raleigh County, West Virginia, concerning his service with the 8240th AU from his enlistment on 5 Feb 1952 to his honorable separation on 4 Jan 1954. My name is Gary K. Rogers, PE, Phd., and I am Dad's oldest son. I am a full professor at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) and am seeking any and all information regarding his duty and service in Korea. I have a number of pictures that I would like to scan and submit as well as a handful of personal stories that he told me years ago. Dad passed away on August, 1981 from a massive heart attack, two months and two days shy of his 50th birthday. He was my best friend growing up and I miss him to this day. He never told us that he was in any type of special unit, and played down his contributions. It was only years after his death did I find his discharge papers, a medical attention letter from the 8240th AU, his M1 Garand issue letter with serial number, and a small box decorations along with a handful of old Korean coins. Thank you all! Most sincerely, Gary K. Rogers

He was the sniper who saved the lives of 117 P.O.W's on one mission and I am interested in trying to find someone who knows more about this or knows John personally. please contact me with any information regarding this. We have been trying to obtain information about John's tour-of-duty but they have told us the paperwork was lost in a fire. We are also trying to obtain the two bronze stars he was awarded and infomation on why he received them. They have been lost in the shuffle of life. Thanks for your service!

Comments: I am looking for information on my father, Robert J. "Bob" Rogers, RA 13 425 802, from Beaver, West Virginia (b. Oct 10, 1931 - d. Aug 8, 1981) who entered service on Feb 5, 1952, and served until honorably discharged on Jan 4, 1954. Dad was a radio operator and served on the western coast of Korea including boats and offshore islands. Dad died suddenly at the age of 49 before I (then 21) could record much detailed information. I have photos to scan/submit and would love to hear from anyone who knew him. I am a professor and professional engineer at the Virginia Military Institute, Lexington, VA, 24450 (540) 464-7411. Dad had a brother, John Wesley Rogers, Jr., a navy corpman, who made the walk back from the Chosin Reservoir. I miss him ... he was my best friend growing up.
