Comments: Looking for anyone who may know of a Roy Foote. He was stationed at Fort Adams in Newport, RI and then was transfered to Korea from 1949 to 1953. His job at the time was a translator. His daughter is trying to find any information about him. She's gone through her life without knowing very much about him. She was just a baby when her mother recieved word he was killed in action. She has been trying to find his death records only to find walls with no openings. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
