If any armed forces member can help out it would be appreciated. I would also like to keep the items donated associated witht he soldier that wore it so I may contact you for certain information so I may type up a history. Please pass this information along to others in the armed forces.

Comments: Hello. There is a large history project at my school and others across the nation that are participating in a History contest. My subject is on African Americans in the Korean war. I am making a documentary which means I need interviews with War Veterans, a few different interviews would be nice and I need at least one African American, the others would just have to inform of me certain things about the war. If anyone could help me I would appreciate it greatly. I wasn't sure how I would find a veteran to interview but then I came upon this place and figured it couldn't hurt to ask. The person needs to be in the Dallas, Fort Worth, or Arlington area. Thank you for your time.

Comments: I am searching for any information that may help me find my father's family. I am adopted and was told that my father was killed during the Korean War. My father would have been stationed in Japan-Air Force Base. I was told that my father was from Maryland maybe Baltimore. He was African American.
