Comments: My mother passed these 17 inch patches (2 of them) on
to me after my father and oldest brother died and I
really don't know what to do with them as I myself
have no children and my husband just recently passed
away. Don't get me wrong these are nice patches with
a cute Mule in the center of them. I'd hate for them
not to go to someone who really was in this Squadron
over in Korea and maybe lost their personel patches
and are looking for replacements. Just contact me aa
I'm sure my father (Meryl James Lee, Sr.) would
appreciate someone getting them that knew about the
squad.
Thx so much,

Comments: Am looking for anyone who knew my father, Maj. (Clare) Ray Vaughn. He was called Ray and often signed his name “C. R. Vaughn”. I think he got a wartime promotion to Lt. Col. He was in the Fifth Air Force and was killed 7/6/1950 at Itazuke AFB.

We were stationed in Nagoya 1948-50, where he was in the adjutant general’s office. He was in an early party bound for Korea when he was killed. Before Japan he was stationed at Lowry AFB in Denver.

The nuclear family survivors are my mother, Mary Dyer Vaughn, myself, and my brother Terry David Vaughn.

Names I remember from the time are Dusty Miller, Stan Koziara, and Col. West.
Also teachers at Nagoya American School might have known our family(?). We knew a family whose daughters were Josephine and Lucille Burris.
