Comments: My Dad passed away in 2008. He never talked to much about the time he spent in the Korean War. Only after quite a few drinks was he able to tell a few stories. The war profoundly affected his personality and the rest of his life. It also affected mine as Dad was not one to show much emotion and was happiest being by himself fishing. If anyone can shed some light on my Father or serviced with him in Korea, please share with me. Dad was in 14th Combat Engineers, Company B.
Thanks!

He died of wounds while protecting his men while they were defending an MSR during 11-12 Aug 1950. In mid 80's the 14th Eng constructed a dirt airstrip for C-130 a/c at Camp Roberts and named the field after him. It is now paved and active in supporting UAV programs. I have a copy of the AAR of the action and a copy of the citation. Anyone with information please contact me.

I'm not sure what all the numbers are because I forgot to write down what they meant but here goes.... 14 (which I believe was 14th Battalion) 81 (?) and 667. Don't know where to go from here.
