Comments: My late father was Lt. Col. John Youens, who commanded the 296th Transportation Truck Battalion for 10 months during the Korean War. I am guessing that this was in 1953. He later went on to be associated with the Port Transportation Division of the 7th Major Port. I would be interested to communicate with anyone who has knowledge of this unit, time, or place.

For what it is worth, I am a Marine Vietnam veteran and later served as a Navy Surface Warfare Officer on the Thomaston (LSD-28) and the Parsons (DDG-33).

Comments: I'm including my dad's info on this site so as to make him inclusive in this project. As of today, May 24, 2002, my dad Andrew Raymond Murphy is still alive. He did not speak of the details of war very much, but did acknowledge his presence and it's importance. He remembers very little with names, but does remember a Theodore Kern from Pennsylvania who was hurt in Korea. Raymond first served from Apr 1952 to Apr 1954 in the 296th Truck Bn, and later served again for a short stint between Nov 1955 to May 1956 in the 1st Calvary Division before he was sent home.

Comments: I was so happy to see the name of Lt. Glass and I will communicate with him. I am also looking for Lt. John B. Patterson. I worked at the Officers" Club while I was attending Seoul National University near the athletics stadium of Pusan. Lt. Glass got me an admission to Texas A.and M. although I ended up going to UC at Berkeley to study chemical engineering.
