Comments: Thank you to those of you served in this war. I am hoping to find anyone that may have known my grandfather, Pvt / Spc Charles Auther Deans. I remember saying that he was in one of the few all-black transportation units. He was from Louisiana, but spend some time in TN. Thanks for your help.

Comments: My father was stationed at a truck unit that was in or near Inchon in 1953. His name was Cpl.William "Bill" S. Smith. USA. He did not talk that much about the war. He passed away in March of 1999. I was going thru some old photos. The only I.D. that I can get is bumper numbers from a truck in the background:

KC2 - 46T-54 The camera cut off the rest. If any one out there has any info, please let me know. He has two grandsons that I want them to remember grand pa.

Thank You
