Comments: Was tower chief at "Dogpatch Tower" K-10 Chinhae, Korea from June 51 until May 52 with a few side trips to K-46. I am interested in finding the booklet publised by the 18FBW called "The Truckbusters" and also one of the unit patches that showed Daisy Man and Lil Abner riding on a F-51. There is a small photo of it in "Mustangs over Korea" but I am unable to copy. "Mustangs over Korea " has a good photo of the Control Tower.

Comments: Does anyone have any information about how to contact Major "Moon" Mullins, a fighter/bomber pilot during the earliest raids on Pyongyang in October of 1950? He was reportedly to have seen my uncle climb out of his P-51, and was the last person to see him alive. My uncle, Don Bolt, a fellow pilot who had been shot down and was surrounded by NKorean forces, was too far behind enemy lines to be rescued by helicoptor, and was never heard from again.

Thank you

Comments: Dear Sirs:
I am trying to locate anyone who knew my Uncle Bob who was KIA on May 6, 1952. He was a 2Lt. who, as far as I know, had just transitioned from P51's to the F86. I don't know what he was flying when he died but would appreciate any information concerning his short tour in ROK.
His service number was A02222230.
His older brother Julius was MIA in 1951 and his intent was to join the war and maybe locate his brother.

Sincerely,
Peter Mac Taggart
