I was using your database very nice, had a problem.  While searching 
KIA/MIA the search  was primary inf reg, 7 div. Search turned up 
3475 matching records..

I appreciate your response and your offer of help. It has been
frustrating for me in my attempts to get information about the unit
I served in.   The 7th Reconnaissance Company 7th Infantry
Division.

I have been looking for my units history, a unit roster at the time 
of the 1950 Inchon landings, unit roster for September1951.

It has been along time since I served, memories have grown dim,
but now at this time in my life I need to remember.

I would appreciate any help you can give me, or any suggestions
you may have.

through Herb Hann who is on you 7th division 7th recon looking for page.

He got to talk to him for a couple of hours before the gentlman left. 
He was extremely happy to see him and get to talk to him. I belive this
gentlman has meet Herb, but I am not positive.  I took pictures for both
of them and he was going to send copies to Herb when he got home and got
them developed.  I can't remeber the guys name unfortunatly or I would
let you know what it was.

My dad is a Korean War Veteran. He was there from 1951 to 1953 in the
7th Recon Co. of the 7th Division Infantry. He is very interested in 
finding as many of his army buddies as possible. He does not have 
access to the internet but please feel free to contact him through my 
email address.

Any information concerning the 7th Infantry Division 7th Recon Co. 
will be greatly appreciated! 

God bless all of you that fought for our freedom!

Buddy Horn

I'm interested in hearing from anyone who served in Korea with my uncle,
M. Kenneth (Buddy) Horn.

Buddy arrived in Korea May 30, 1952, and was killed in action Nov 2,'52
I  know he was killed while manning a machine gun in no man's land, but
I'm hoping someone survives who knew him.


I believe that Buddy was killed while manning a machine-gun in a out 
post or listening post that was over run by the Chinese. I also looked
up other Army personnel KIA the same day as Buddy. They weren't in the 
AR recon. Could they have been put in a listening post together?

Do you have any ideas about how I may find the names of survivers from 
his unit? I have heard that a man who was his best friend in his unit 
was also from Quincy, MA, But I don't know his name.

My uncle, M. Kenneth Horn, was Pvt 7th Recon, 7th inf. div. KIA 11-2-52.

Buddy as he was called by our family was killed before I was born. He
was from Quincy, MA. I would like to know more about him from anyone who
served with him. I believe he was killed in a machine-gun outpost and
his last letter home stated "everybody set to the machine guns...no-one
has come back, now I'm going". Uncle Buddy didn't come back. 

I would very much appreciate any help locating friends of my uncle or
any information regarding his service record.

My brother, Alvin J. La Flair, RA12283411, was with the 
7th Reconnaissance Co, 7th Inf Div at Inchon and then to the Yalu River.

A lot of people think that the 17th Inf Reg was the only US unit to get 
to the Yalu. Not so. After the evacuation of Hungnam, he was transferred 
to HG & HG Company, (IR Platoon), 31st Inf Reg and subsequently 
seriously wounded on 2 June 1951 at the Hwachon Resevoir.

I am a retired US air Force CMSgt.
