Comments: I am helping a friend to find his fellow Marine that saved his life in the Korean War.
Ron Tralmer was a Marine during the Korean War, and on Oct. 1952 he was hit with a grenade, Pedro Luis Rodriquez-Melendez aided in getting him out to a helicopter and get medical help. There is more to the story than that, but Ron has been trying to find him for many years and to thank him personally. He said he would travel wherever he needed to make that happen. Please if anyone knows Pedro or his family, contact my email.
Thank you!

Comments: I am looking for anyone who may have known my father, John Muellauer. I think he was in the 5th division 2nd battalion. I do know he was a Marine at the battle of Chosin Reservoir. He was from Cleveland, Ohio and his brother, Karl Muellauer also served. My dad passed away on June 12, 2014 and was not until after that I found out that he was in this battle. He was always very quiet about his time in the war and I knew it was horrific for him so I knew not to ask too many questions. I always knew he was a hero, but now that I know that he was involved in this battle I am truly even more grateful and proud of him and all of you who served. I also know he sustained frost bite. While in college I wanted to enroll in the ROTC program because I wanted to serve my country. My parents resisted me severely. It was not until my dad's death that I was told that because of this battle he did not want any of his 6 children in the military. I love my country. I love my father and am so proud of him. I only wish I knew this prior to his death and I am longing to get more/any information that somebody may have about him.

Comments: Hello,

I am searching for anyone who might have served in Weapons Co, 1st
Battalion, 7th Marines from May 1951 to December 1951. My uncle,
William Ullmann was a member of Weapons Co during this time period
and I am trying to find out more information about his time in service.
He was later KIA July 19, 1953 at COP Berlin as a member of I Co, 3rd
Battalion, 7th Marines.

His records indicate that he was SSGT and Squad Leader as well as AT
leader during this period. He was also wounded several times. He was
a small guy, not too tall and skinny. Originally from the NJ/NYC area.

Really hoping to find someone who knew him, have been searching a
long time.

He was KIA 30 October 1951 on Hill 441 which I believe
was near the Punch Bowl. A small theater was built and
dedicated in his honor. The site is inside the current DMZ.
I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone that

Comments: I had arrived in Korea late in 1953. I was stationed just North of the Imjim river as a BAR man in my squad. That was Baker Company. A couple months later, I was transfered to H and S Company which was just across the valley. There, I was assigned to being a searchlight operator in the TACP unit. ( tactical air control party )We had 3 searchlight operators ( one for each company in the Bn.)There were also 4 radio operators in TACP.We had a Marine Fighter Pilot as our group commander.They took turns rotating into our group every 4 months.The Marines perfected ' close air -to -ground support' We were trained to light up targets for the Marine pilots while the radio operators called in air strikes. I arrived in Korea just after the war stopped so I never did more than keep up on my training but others before me used those lights to light up the hills when the enemy attacked their positions.
I would like to hear from anyone who was there around that time. Korea was the first time in the Marine Corps history that they used searchlights like this. Anyone who was associated with TACP, please contact me as it would be interesting to hear from you.

Comments: Frank Britt, my father, recently died. I have old Korea photographs - which include photos of Marines in and around Koto-Ri, images of the breakout convoys, and the Chosin Resevoir. If you are interested please let me know. It would be great if these are passed on to other family members. I have scanned these into a pdf file and several jpg's.

Dad was a Corpsman serving in Charlie Company of the 7th Regiment. He landed at Inchon, and later on the east cost of Korea for the drive to Chosin. Dad was there when the Chinese attacked in early November. Dad was wounded in combat on November 11 in the hills above Koto-ri. I do not know how he got some of these photos since they were taken after he was evacuated. The breakout came later that month. I also have a photograph of his graduating class for Hospitalmen, April, 1948 as well.

As many here have said, veterans of combat don't speak of their experiences. However, towards the end of Dad's life he collected a whole series of books on the Korean War which I am reading now. Reading these, having seen my Dad's bronze star and Purple Heart, his wound, makes me a very proud son, a humble and grateful American. God bless all of you who served in Korea and might read this!

Comments: I am trying to determine the Who, What , When, Where, and How of a helicopter landing pad built of sandbags on the side of a mountain in the Taebeck range of eastern Korea on the Minnesota Line of the MLR, around Sept 1951 to March 1952. A picture of the site is in the Air War section of the Korean War gallery of the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico, VA. The picture shows an HRS-1 chopper of HMR-161 squadron landing on the pad. Does anyone know who the pilot was?
I landed on that pad on or about 5 Jan 1952 on my first deployment to the MLR>

Comments: I am attempting to locate any Marine who served with my father Clinton F. Harrington Jr. My father died in 1976 and unfortunately I never was able tp learn any of his Marine Corps history. I know he was awarded the Silver Star as well as the Purple Heart. The best I know he was wounded in December of 1950 near the Cosin Reservoir. Any help or suggestions to help me find this information would be appreciated. I was also a Marine and would like to fill in this chapter in my life as I was 13 when he died.
