Comments: Served with the 289th MP Company during the period 1950-1952. The 289th MP Company was cited for its performance in the difficult time during the period when we were in full retreat December 1950 - January 1951. In april 1951 we were transfered to Koji-Do to assist in the detention of POWs from Korea and China. I rotated back to the states in March 1952. The 289th had good man and I was proud to have served with them

Comments: Hello,
My father is Donald Heaston, he was stationed at the 8th Army Stockade in Japan approx 1948-1952 and guarded Japanese POWs. I would like to find someone who might remember him and get them in contact with each other. We do have a few photos we could share. He remembers Tojo was one of the prisoners the same time he was there. Unfortunately, he doesn't remember exactly which Company he was with. The only name he remembers is Johnny Walters, who was his best man at his wedding.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and please contact me if you have some information at:

God Bless!
