I would like to see the 4th Airborne Ranger Company as a unit to be
added to the 1st Cav history. Although this unit bounced around from
one unit assignment to another, it was originally assigned to the 1st
and was attached to the 5th, 7th and 8th for logistics.

Thank You,

George E Schroeder

Comments: Please help me find a chaplain who served in the Pubwon-ni area. I have a (1964?)photo of him with two orphans from Happiness Orphanage, 20 orphans driven weekly to chapel by orphanage father via bus. One child in the picture is Goo Sooni, an Amerasian, about 11 yrs. Her mother: Jung Song Ja, "Mickey" to GIs, from Pubwon-ni, near MIckey Mouse Corner.

Just before chaplain returned to US, he took Sooni to Elvis movie, "Viva Las Vegas" and to base cafeteria for hamburg. The chaplain left "a lot of money" with Sooni's mother to "take care of Sooni".

Sooni was rescued by the author, Pearl S. Buck, brought to the states, is now married, a mother of two grown sons, middle school math teacher and a strong supporter of the Pearl S. Buck efforts to care for Amerasian children around the world.

I am writing Sooni's memoir. She would like very much to thank the chaplain for his kindness. My husband and I are trying to find the gentleman for her.

If anyone has any inkling as to the identification of this chaplain, any source for our search, or whatever, we do not have his name and would appreciate very much any help someone might be able to give. Bless you. Carol Wedeven

If you're interested, we will send digitized photo.

Comments: Do you have any more information on the 2nd and 4th army ranger companies of the Korean War? I was knocked off my chair to find out they started as an all-black ranger company.

I am a black Vietnam vet who also was a ranger in the Vietnam War. I did not serve in any ranger company; I went over as a 19-year-old staff sergeant ranger. They use to call me the “lone ranger” (because you did not see many rangers and never any black ones). I was in the 101st 1st of the 506th infantry division and wounded in combat.

I do not belong to any associations, I am also looking for posters depicting black Vietnam era veterans if you know of any sites please let me know of them.
