Comments: My Pappaw, Melvin B. Christman, passed away at the end of 2014. He shared many stories with us over the years, but we never knew the extent of what he actually did in Korea until he had passed and we went through his belongings. We found a Bronze Star, paperwork for a Silver Star, and many other medals we never knew he had earned. I am hoping to find any information I can, and would appreciate whatever help I can get! He was in Korea sometime between 50-52, a Sergeant First Class with the 7th Division 31st Infantry Regiment Polar Bears, E (Easy) Company 4th Platoon. He was chosen to lead a group to Heartbreak Ridge, spoke of leaving at night and giving a password to someone, and one of the guys he took Basic Training with, who also made Sergeant First Class, was with him. We have a picture of he and maybe 5-10 other soldiers raising a flag on a hill that I cannot remember the name of. He also mentioned he was on Pork Chop Hill. Please, if anyone can help us learn more about this amazing man that we miss dearly, we would be eternally grateful!

Comments: I've received my dad's military records well what wasn't burned up completely or damaged in the fire of July 12,1973. The letter states his records were in the area that suffered the most damage from the fire. So I only received a portion of his records and some is of poor quality. I know there is some missing just from what my brother has said he has our dad gave him. I've also got tons of pictures from there. I've got pictures of Mariyln Monroe at the 7th United States Infantry Division Bayonet Bowl also. I didn't even know it was her!! I was all holy crap I've got pictures of Marilyn Monroe that's so awesome!! I've got picture of so many other military members like one named PFC. Lanchans and SP3. Blust. My dad was born April 3,1934 and he passed away March 20,2007. He's from Ellijay,Ga. Also he lived and served in reserve in Yipsilanti, Michigan and Ann Arbor, Michigan. He was at Camp Casey from April 19,1957-July 13,1958. I was told he was in Korea around 1953-1954 and also that he was a POW during the cease fire time. I'm so confused about all of it. I need some help can anyone clear up rather anyone was actually really a POW during cease fire time. My dad wouldn't tell me a thing just he was in the army and over in Korea during the war. So I'm wondering if he actually was there earlier than what the NPRC sent to me. It's just weird that his was in the worst part of the fire and I was told he was a POW but that not even his parents knew he was missing what so ever. It's probably just a coincidence. He was also 6'3-6'4 tall his name was Kenneth Eugene Pettit. I've got his army 7th div. drivers test team apo7 license both of his fooive service cards, his domain of the golden dragon member of the 180th Meridian card. I've also got his dog tags and his class ring. I love my family history. I've also got all of these pictures of tons of women too. I mean a bunch of them. It's so neat to read such amazing stories of people who lived and died before even my dad and even my grandma was born. I also love the movies based on true stories and actual real events involving people during the wars like the movie Imitation Game, Windtalkers, Unbroken, and Hacksaw Ridge. It's bone chilling to know what those men went through to survive and to know what they did to make them the heros they truly are and such an inspiration to me in always being strong, to never break, and above all else to never give up no matter what that if those men can survive and do the courageous things they did for our country then how can I knowingly give up on something so trivial and how can I let myself break under basically not even tiny bit of pressure compared to the hardships they endured. I was so shocked and just in absolute aww of the guy in Hacksaw Ridge who saved so very many lives with not even a weapon at all. I was just so amazed and uterly speechless and so proud and honored to be able to call myself a fellow American to these amazing people. I am so disappointed and disgusted and have no respect for how our very own government and also other fellow Americans treat our veterans. I'm heartbroken over how much disrespect they get in this day and time. We have fallen so very far and have become such a disgrace as a nation. I'm truly and have never in my life been so ashamed of my fellow Americans as I have become now. I just hope one day they all wake up and see the big picture right there in front of them and they give y'all awesome men and women the massive respect and honor and assistance y'all deserve and have God given right to!! I'm so sorry this has become so long. If anyone has any information they think may help me feel free to email me at: stover.hope@yahoo.com thank you for you're precious and very valuable time. Thank you for your service and for protecting all the freedoms we take for granted on a daily basis.

Comments: I am looking for any information on PFC Charles Eden. He was in the US ARMY - 31st Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division, he enlisted on 3/26/1952, just after his 18th birthday, from Wayne, Passiac County, NJ. He was KIA while fighting the enemy in North Korea, January 12, 1953, he didn't see his 19th birthday. I don't know where he was killed, in what battle, I know he was there for the 3rd Korean Winter dated December 1952 thru April, 1953.

For too many families, this is a common story, our sons and daughters growing up so fast, becoming men and women, dying before their time. As the stone plaque at the Korean War Memorial in Washington, D.C. says, Our nation honors her sons and daughters who answered the call to defend a country they never knew and a people they never met.

I am putting together a memorial box for my mother and uncle. As time goes by, they are talking about him more often, for a long time, they didn't talk about him, perhaps it has been too painful. Unfortunately, he was killed before I was born, so I have nothing but the information I have gathered doing research. Any information that my maternal grandparents may have received, over the years, has been lost. I am taking her for her birthday to Arlington National Cemetery to visit his marker, for his birthday, they were born 4 years and 4 days apart. It is important for her to go, for her to remember, for me to remember, for all of us to remember.

So, if there is anyone with anything, photos, information, a conversation that they might have had with my uncle, Charles Eden, please contact me.

Thank you, Merry Christmas, and may God Bless you and your family.

Comments: My great uncle PFC Max L Bailey was listed as missing presumed dead 30 November 1950. His unit was company M 31st infantry. I was wondering if anyone in or around company M might be able to tell me when or how he actually died.

I know TF Faith commander LTC Don C Faith Jr was recovered recently, so if anyone knows of the efforts to recover RCT 31 MIAs that would also be helpful too.

Comments: My father, Walton Miller from Minnesota, served in Korea from 1953 to approximate 1955-56, 7th Div, 31st Inf Reg, Heavy Motor or Mortar Co, Commo Section. I'm not sure if it was Heavy Motor or Heavy Mortar because I can't be sure of his handwriting.

I have picture where he listed some of his Section, but the names only include rank, last name and hometown and state. I would like to find out their full names and any information about these gentlemen that is available. My Dad is 82 and is having trouble remembering things and I am hoping to create a book out of his Army picture and slides and I would like to include some bits about his Army buddies. Any help is greatly appreciated. The men I am asking about are:
Stst. Howerter, Gailsburg, Illinois
Cpl. Rivera, Puerto Rico
PFC Warshawsky, Chicago, Illinois
Cpl Hayes, St. Louis, Missouri
Sgt Bolin, Gibbon, Nebraska
PFC Baldwin, Florida
PFC Decker, Illinois
Cpl Hey(g)n, Indianapolis, Indiana (the Mail Clerk)

Also, another name on picture is Floyd Rude, North Dakota, but no rank, and I'm not sure he was in my Dad's section, but it looks like they did some R&R together.

Comments: I am looking for information about my father, Robert W. Klemisch. He was in Korea from fall of 1950 to fall of 1951. He only mentioned a few things about Korea; freezing cold, company virtually wiped out by Chinese, MIA for couple days, men killed before they got out of sleeping bags, Chosen Reservoir, frozen Chinese in foxholes, detached to marines, wounded on truck hoods to keep them warm, seeing the Yalu River, Pork Chop Hill, and evacuation at Hungnam. If you or anyone you know have heard of my father please contact me. He has passed away and I recently acquired some of his pictures from Korea.

But I am looking for information on dad Walter A. Perry who served in Korea around this same time frame. He had a friend from what, we were told as kids with this same last name that he named one of my brothers as his first name. My father always talked about Pork Chop hill and how his friend died on the battlefield. So I'm hoping some one can shed some light on this for me. I'm trying to get information about my dad. Much appreciated.

Respectively,
