Comments: We are looking for anyone who might remember Neil Barber. (Tina Jackson is friend with computer access/skills helping him in search). Part of Neil's service record has been lost, according to St. Louis, and he is trying to verify MOS for service related injury eligibility for care at VA. He did not keep in touch with anyone he served with, many of whom were older men (they were a reserve group brought into 437th), and is afraid that many he served with may no longer be with us. (He is 78 himself). If there is anyone out there who remembers him, or even if you just might have some suggestions on who we should contact, or where to look, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Comments: Hello, My father was a flight engineer (C-46) for the 85th and 86th TCS of the 437th from late 1950 to early 1952. He was based at Brady Air Base in Japan. He died in August 2004 and I am creating a display case of his Korean War service. Patches of this era seem impossible to come by, so does anyone know where I could see an image of any of the following insignias from the Korean War era: 85th and/or 86th Troop Carrier Squadrons and/or 437th Troop Carrier Wing (M) If I could at least see a color image, I am hopeful I could have a surrogate patch or insignia or plaque created. Many thanks, Peter Lindberg

IMPOSSIBLE SEARCH?

Unit: FAMILY OF SERIVCEMAN

Service or Relationship: INTERESTED PERSON

Comments: I am undertaking an impossible search for an Airfoceman, who alledgedly died in the Vietnam conflict around 1963. This is the story of the aftermath of the devestated family he left when he disappeared. Unfortunately his name has been lost.

He had an 8 year old child with a Japanese typist/stenographer called Hatsu Yanagida. He never married Hatsu. Hatsu died shortly after his death/disappearance in a car accident. She left Yuko, 8 years old, no home, no family, American or Japanese, willing to take care of her. She went into the Seibi Orphanage, where she was taken care of.

I am the wife of this man`s grandchild, Ryu Fujiyama - Yuko went on to have 3 children with Junichiro Fujiyama. I am pregnant with this man`s greatgrandchild, and we simply want the truth. If he died, we would like to know how and where. If he went back to America and deserted his family, we would like to meet any distant family, if they wish to meet us.

Most importantly Yoko would like some resolution. I am English by nationality, and do not feel the shame felt by the Japanese side of this family that has been of greatly affected by this man`s irresponsibility, or tragic death. His decendants have been the butt of racism here in Japan, and not accepted because they have American blood, and they have been refused American greencards.

If anyone knew Hatsu Yanagida and the father of her child, Yuko, we sould greatly appreciate any information or assistance in righting this wrong.

I respect America and American Servicemen, and the great sacrifices made by them. I feel great sadness, however at this lost history. Good or bad, the truth is all we ask, and we promise not to judge if he or his family want to come forward.

Thank you for all your help.

Comments: I have established a private website for ALL Who Served During the Korean War Era - before, during and after... no matter what branch of service you served in or where stationed, Overseas in Korea or Japan -- Stateside or in any other country during the Korean War Era. We had our first reunion in 50 yrs on 12 Aug 2000 in Park Ridge, Illinois. We found over 250 of our personnel including four Generals. We now have a newsletter to help keep eveyone in contact with each other and to continue researching other personnel for future reunions. We are proposing the 2001 Reunion to be held in the Chicagoland Area or Peoria Area of Illinois... 2002 in South Carolina ... 2003 in Colorado Mountains Area and 2004 in San Diego, CA.
There is no charge to view this private website but you must contact Ernie Wagner/Ann Soehrmann
to gain access. Info on the Newsltr is also thru her. (USAFR and USAF WAF Veteran Oct 49-Feb 1952).
Her husband, AL Soehrmann is an Army Korean War Veteran who served with the 159th FAB, I Corps and its Air Section. This is for all services.
