Would like to communicate with anyone interested.

Comments: My Dad, Norm Anderson, was a 1st Lt forward observer in Battery A
of the 171st FABN. He passed away in August 2006 after a long fight
with cancer. He was the toughest guy I ever knew. He did not speak
much about his time in Korea, but we always knew he was proud of
his time there (He did talk a lot about his time on R&R in Tokyo).
I recently came across a stack of letters he had written to my
grandmother while he was over there and that's how I discovered his
unit. If anyone out there knew him and had any stories to tell,
we'd be very happy to hear them.

Comments: I was a forward observer with the 171 Fa Bn 45th Div from October 52 until its colors were returned to the states. As such I called in fire missions for many Artillery Batterys and Infantry Companys in various battles all along the 45th front. After the 45th left Korea I was transfered to a forward observer battalion of 8th army and lost all contact with anyone who served with me. Like so many Korean Vets I have tried to forget many of my experiences for nearly 50 years but now I think I am ready to hear from someone who can talk about some common experiences. I would be happy to hear from anyone concerning that time frame.
