Comments: I am doing the family genealogy and looking for any pictures, information or recollections about Marvin Alfred Haney, 1stLt/USA O-1913362 of B Btry, 15th FA Bn (105mm), 2nd ID.

He was captured during the fighting in or around Hoengsong on 13 Feb 1951 and later died while in custody of either the CCF or NKPA on or about 31 May 1951. His remains where never recovered.

I would like to hear from any member of the above unit who may have known Marvin before his capture or while he was a POW. I am also looking for any pictures of him taken by friends during his assignment to B Btry, 15th FA (105mm), 2nd ID. Any information on what happened to him before and during his capture and if possible what was the cause of his death while a POW. If known which POW camp and its location, where he was incarcerated.

1stLt Marvin A Haney, is my Maternal 1st cousin 1x removed. His loss occurred 5 months before I was born, so I never knew him and would like to hear from anyone who did.

Thank you for your time on this request and especially for your service and sacrifices for this nation.

I am looking for any and all information on Cpl.

Serial number RA 15929720 . This may or may not be
his number. He served in Korea and was taken
prisoner on February 13, 1951 and reported seen alive
after capture.

He was taken prisoner in Hoenson Korea ,in the
vicinity of Wonju. His unit was over run. He was a
member of HQ. BTRY. 15 th FA. BN. 2nd INF.DIVISION .

After he was taken prisoner there is no record of
him. He was an original member of the 389 Mia listed
and believed a POW as stated by returning POWS .

What happened to HQ.BTRY.15th FA.BN .2nd INF DIVISION
after they were over run?

Could you also put this letter on your web site in
case any one else may have first hand information
ofjust what happened to Cpl. Alfred Lopes Jr.

Comments: John Sarno left Chicago, IL. in October 1950 headed for California to ship out. When he arrived at the base in California he called to inform us that the Army had misplaced his papers. Due to this he was unable to depart with his battalion.
He remained at base in CA until his papers had been located and he shipped out with another group. Once John arrived in Korea, again he was told that his papers had been misplaced and he remained behind until they were located.
At this point we are told he was sent with a third group toward Kangnung, South Wonju. This is the location we are told John was either killed or taken prisoner.
If anyone can verify or provide additional information regarding his whereabouts at any time, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You!

Comments: My father was a forward observer for the 15th Artillery Battalion in
Korea and as a young child he told me many stories of that time. His
name was Max Horton. He went on to be a career army officer, rising
to Fill Colonel and working with Pershing Missiles. He died relatively
young, 18 years ago, from a number of things, including (I think)
cancer brought on from being an atomic survivor.

I am just now reading David Halberstam's book on the Korean War -
"The Coldest Winter" - and it has brought a renewed interest in finding
out more about my father and what he went through, especially so I
can share that with my four kids who never met him.

I thought I would send an email to see if anyone might remember his
name.

Thanks for any help on this!

Comments: My Father, Timothy E. Bradshaw Sr., passed away two years ago on October 10, 2006. Fortunately during the few years before his death, he became a member of the 2nd ID veterans group and was able to once again communicate with some of his "battle buddies" I know of Oscar Cortez for one and a few others.

In 2000 I took him on a trip to Fort Sill where we lived for quite a few years. While there we visited his old First Sergeant Charlie Limmerick. It was an unforgettable time. I was able to take some pictures of thier renunion. It was definatley the first time he had seen him since the Korean War.

We also have been in touch with the family of Everette Chappell [He died while in captivity in Feb 1950] Everette was a close friend of my father. Everette spent the night with him the night before they embarked for basic training at Fort Knox, Ky in Feb 1950. They served together from there and went to Fort Lewis where they became part of the 15th Arty. My Dad was cannoner in the 3rd Section of A Battery. He told me his gun fired the first round of the war and that he had kept the empty shell behind the seat of thier truck. On Jan 3, 1951 he was shipped to Japan with frozen feet. Because of this action, he escaped the terrible slaughter of the battalion in February at the time Everette was captured. He told me he returned from Japan to the unit and assisted with the details to recover the dead. This was something he never talked about for many years, fortunatley, after he reunited with other members of the 2nd ID organization, he began to share some of his stories with me.

He would get emotional when he recounted his experiences. He was very proud to have served with this unit.

A few years before his death, I purchased a Korean War era patch of the 2nd ID and gave it to him for a keepsake. He requested that I place it over his heart when he passed. He was given a beautiful military funeral by members of the 18th Airborne Corps from Fort Bragg. This was the last unit he served with just before retiring from the Army in 1969. When I took my last look at him lying in his casket, I honored his request and placed the Indian Head Patch on his heart and he was buried with it. His bronze plaque on his tomb is cast with the same commemorating him as a Korean War Veteran.

Just before his retirement, he served a year in Viet Nam. He loved the Army. This is a great website and I am very proud of his service. Thanks for being here. It brings comfort. I would love to hear from anyone who knew him.

His name was Eugene Florez and when he became ill he wanted me to find out if any of his old friends were still alive. Unfortunately, he passed away before I was able to find anyone. So, I'm still hoping someone out there remembered him. He was the kindest and most gentle father anyone could hope for and I'd like to grant this last wish of his.

Comments: Hello, I'm looking for information regarding my father. He was a Master Sergeant and in charge of the artillery (looked like big cannons in a picture) and in the front lines for 9 months, then had an additional 9 months after the war ended of policing action during the Korean War. His name was Eugene Florez and when he became ill he wanted me to find out if any of his old friends were still alive. Unfortunately, he passed away before I was able to find anyone. So, I'm still hoping someone out there remembered him. He was the kindest and most gentle father anyone could hope for and I'd like to grant this last wish of his. You can e-mail me at sjones@osiosi.com or call me at (510) 476-8108 if you knew of him. He stated that he was stationed in front of that famous MASH unit they made a television program of.

Comments: Does anyone remember how bad it was for the truck drivers who serviced the front lines.
Do you remember the name a front line infantry soldier who was killed by our guys because he didn't know the right password. He was so full of holes, it was hard to recognize him and the Sergeant had the bag unzipped because he wanted us to see what could happen it you didn't remember the password. He was my friend.

Also, I am building a roster of C Battery members during the period July 1950 through May, 1951. It is an Excel spreadsheet, and contains all the information I have been able to find.
