Comments: My Dad's name was Vernon Nelson Dennis. He was the
person who climbed on top of the 171st Evac Hospital
to change the flag from the Korean flag to the US flag
when we took it over. I have the Korean flag to
this day, photos of the hospital, and the appreciation
letter he got when he set up the x-ray department at
the hospital. He entered the Army out of Thomasville,
NC. He died on April 30, 1999, at age 79, of
Alzheimer's disease. He was very proud of his 20-year
Army career, spent as a medic, then as a registered x-
ray technician. He was a WWII and Korean War
veteran. He wound up retiring as Chief of the X-ray
department at Womack Army Hospital, Ft. Bragg. He
continued to serve as Chief of the x-ray department at
Emory University Hospital in Atlanta GA for an
additional 22 years until a 2nd retirement in 1986.

Comments: I am a former Marine, Gulf Vet, now attorney, representing a Korean War vet pro bono. Trying to get VA to provide long overdue benefits. Need your help. I have a copy of a Form 8-27, dated 12 Oct. 1951, which lists "Wound, lacerated. Scalp. No A or N involved." What does the A and N stand for? Also, it says "LD yes." What does LD stand for? BTW, a Capt. Wikoff signed the vet's release; may provide a memory or two from the past.

THANKS ALL FOR YOUR SERVICE AND SACRIFICE!
