Good Morning,

My name is Mike Carper and I live near Raleigh NC.  I am a Viet Nam
veteran (101st Airborne, infantry platoon leader, 2/327th Inf).  I am
helping my father-in-law search for any reference to the unit he
served in during the Korean war.

His name is:
Hoyt Lock
548 Sullivan Rd
Selma, NC, 27576

He served as a platoon sergeant with the 98th Engineer Photo Company
attached to the 8th Army and later to the 5th Air Force. If you have
any reference to that unit or to any of its members I would greatly
appreciate your help. 


More:  I have some more info from my father-in-law as follows:

The 98th Engineer Photo Company was a 3rd Army company organized at
Fort Bragg, NC and went to Korea attached to 8th Army and 5th Air
Force. 

They developed film and produced photos for use by the men in combat
with the artillery units.  Company commanders were Cpt. Duer and Cpt.
Durant.  The unit was sent to Korea from Ft. Bragg in June 1952.  In
Korea they continued to wear the round patch with the A on it. 


Thank you,
Mike Carper
