Comments: My father, Robert Pontius was a surgeon in the Naval Reserves and
wrote letters home while serving in the Korean Conflict.

The letters include:

1952
January -March:
Japan. Tokyo, Yokusuka. US Naval Hospital 2923

1952 March-April: LST 914

1952 May-Sept: LST 802 and 14th Field Hospital North of Pusan.

I am eager to make contact with anyone who may have overlapped
with his service, or anyone who could help me search archives for
news or photos that would complement the letters. I would like to
eventually get the letters in a book for for my dad and our family.

Comments: For my english class I am doing a Research paper as part of the Library of Congress' Veterans History Project. My Veteran, my grandfather, was stationed in Japan during the Korean war, and i was wondering if anyone knew of any sites relating to medical personel of the korean war, instead of just the combat troops. If you have any suggestion of sites, or have any questions, please email me at TJHilfiger05@aol.com
Thanks!
