Comments: Hi,
Am looking for any info. My father passed away many years ago, and I wanted to find his records. Wrote to National Archives and am told they were burned in a fire. Came here and find I'm not the only one in the dark due to our veteran family members unwillingness to talk. I guess my Dad and the men he fought with felt the need to move on with their lives and not dwell on their experiences.
His name was Gerald Dale Mitchell and he was 17 years old when he enlisted. I would like to at least have an idea or be able to read up on what he went through. Have been all over the internet and all I can find online is that he was a combat construction foreman with the 32nd unit in the 7th Division, 187th Airborne. He was wounded by a missile blast and sent to Japan to be treated shortly before his buddies were sent to Pork Chop Hill. April of 1953 to be exact. Can anyone recommend any place to start? Thanks for taking the time to read this.

One question? Was Howard Taylor, brother of actress Elizabeth Taylor,
attached to 32nd? One story was he was FST's driver. Any verification?

I tried to email you but it was returned. I found your name on my grandad's roster of 306th Engineer Dump Truck Company.

It is listed as:
Kyco, John M
RFD#1 Box 193, Johnstown, Pennsylvania

His name is Gene Chambers, he says he don't remember much about anyone because he was always on the road.

Please contact me, maybe we can jog his memory.

Thanks,
