Comments: I remember how cold it was and what a cruel place to live all those months.We had only squad all the time we were there, no heat anywhere. Pulling the 155 howsers on those mountain roads wet and slick with the half tracts was quite something. I think the "forgotten war" there was somebody who was not there.

Comments: Frank L. Chandler was a friend of my father's when we lived in Hawaii in the early 1950's. After Frank was wounded, he would come to visit us.
Recently, we saw a famous picture of him taken during the Korean War. He was sitting, comforting another man who had just lost his buddy. The picture was taken by Al Chang, a famous military photographer from Hawaii. The new book where this picture appears is called "Rehearsal for Defeat" by David Halberstam.
We would like to know if there is anyone out there who might know something about Frank.
