Comments: I'm looking for information on my grandfather, Lawrence (Larry) Thibodeaux, SFC, USA RET. He passed away several months before I was born in 1989. He was with 1st Ranger Co. and is mentioned in the preface to Col. Black's book Rangers in Korea. I really don't know much about him, and my uncle somehow has control over all of grandpa's military stuff (although he never served in the military like my dad and I both did). I'm looking to see if anyone has any anecdotes or other information they would be willing to share. He was also with 10th SFG in Vietnam. If you're able, please contact me at my aforementioned email address. Thanks.

He
was part of 82nd. He speaks of some great men who served
under him as a section leader. He mentioned some of them by
name but unfortunatlly I can't remember them. His name is
Andrew D. Adame from La Habra, Ca. He turns 80 yrs. Old at the
end of Nov. And I'm throwing him a suprise b-day party. I know
from spending all my free time with him, he really love to see his
old army buddies. So if you served or stationed in NC with
Andrew Adame please help me give my Hero a gift he won't soon
forget. And to all the Heros of the US armed forces, Thank you.
Without you, all of these freedoms, that so many of us take for
granite, would not be possible. God Bless.

Comments: Please help me find a chaplain who served in the Pubwon-ni area. I have a (1964?)photo of him with two orphans from Happiness Orphanage, 20 orphans driven weekly to chapel by orphanage father via bus. One child in the picture is Goo Sooni, an Amerasian, about 11 yrs. Her mother: Jung Song Ja, "Mickey" to GIs, from Pubwon-ni, near MIckey Mouse Corner.
Just before chaplain returned to US, he took Sooni to Elvis movie, "Viva Las Vegas" and to base cafeteria for hamburg. The chaplain left "a lot of money" with Sooni's mother to "take care of Sooni".
Sooni was rescued by the author, Pearl S. Buck, brought to the states, is now married, a mother of two grown sons, middle school math teacher and a strong supporter of the Pearl S. Buck efforts to care for Amerasian children around the world.
I am writing Sooni's memoir. She would like very much to thank the chaplain for his kindness. My husband and I are trying to find the gentleman for her.
If anyone has any inkling as to the identification of this chaplain, any source for our search, or whatever, we do not have his name and would appreciate very much any help someone might be able to give. Bless you. Carol Wedeven
If you're interested, we will send digitized photo.

Comments: I was a friend of Frank Marx. We trained as Rangers together at Fort Benning, GA, then we were assigned to the 1st Airborne Ranger Co. in Korea. Upon deactivation of the 1st Co, in August 1951, we were both assigned to Co. I, 187th Airborne at Beppu, Japan. After a few weeks with Frank in Japan, I volunteered for reassignment to Korea and was assigned to the 8th Cav Reg't, then Co. F, 38th Infantry. While with the latter unit, I saw Frank at Koje Do in May 1952. I returned from Korea in Nov 1952 and have never heard from Frank since that time. Believe I have a photo of us both in my album. Frank was a good soldier and a nice fella.
