Comments: I am trying to get information of my father's service in Korean War. His name was John A. Bernard Dahlgren. He was in the 21st Transportation Medium Port in Inchon @ 1953. Desperately trying to reconstruct his military records (lost in 1973 fire destroying records) in order to get benefits for my mother who needs help with medical expenses.

Comments: I just converted 110 of my father's slides He took in Korea. He never did learn how to focus that Argus c-3, but I will send copies of them to anyone who thinks they can identify anyone or any of the places in the photos. Just ask.

Comments: Looking for any information, photographs, documents, stories, etc. from anyone who served with my Grandpa Lt. Col. Charles aka Shorty Howland from 1950-1954 at Port Inchon, Korea. He was Port Engineer.
Grandpa had one son, I am his eldest child and the US Army will not give me next of kin status to get his records. I have one newspaper article from his next post as Post Engineer at Fort Eustis, VA that notes his service at Inchon which was the only documentation I can find besides a calling card from he was ranked at Lt. Colonel (he later made full bird). My grandparents and father have passed- Grandpa died in 1969 from encephalitis contracted in Korea.

Comments: I work for the va and I am trying to help a veteran verify his stressor statement. I asked the NPRC and they responded that The Military History Institute, Center for Military History and the National Archives and Records Administration do not maintain records submitted by the 21st Medium Port..I was stumped.

Where should I go? The veteran (Army) claims that on or about February or March 1953, while serving as Detachment Commander to a Port Provisional Detachment at the 21st Medium Port at Inchon, Korea, enemy aircraft attacked a petroleum, oil and lubricant tank farm; the attack started a fire and killed several Koreans. Veteran further stated that he assisted in trying to put out this blaze which lasted approximately 36 hours.

Would you have any suggestions where or which office I should go to to retrieve verification of this event?
