Comments: I have been searching for my Dad's military records. I came
across a letter he wrote to my mother and saw the return address.
After his name it says..
US 52 350 714
68th CML. SMK. GENR. CO.
APO 633 NY, NY

All I know of his service was that he spent some time in Germany.
The letter is dated 1 Nov 1955, Wiesboden, Germany.
His name is CPL. Robert W Crawford. He went by Billy to most.

I would love to hear from anyone who may have known him, served
with him, or has any information on his unit.

Thank you!
Sandy

Comments: Good morning everyone, I'm hoping one of you might have a little information for me and my Mother-in-law. We recently lost her husband (Charles Finley)and his medals were re-issued to her but we were told that all his medical and military records were lost in a fire. On his dd-214 under duty assignment it says (DET #12 1262nd ASU) is this his military unit? We are at an impass to find any info about him by alternative methods without knowing this. Can someone please help? He mentioned being in Pusan and being near Seoul, and mixing Napome. I'm hoping someone out there can help. His nickname (FLASH).
Thank you,
Sincerely Emma Finley

Comments: 68th Chemical Company is proud of its rich heritage. The company's soldiers would all be very interested in hearing your stories during the Korean war. For your information, 68th Chemical Company recently arrived back to Fort Hood from a deployment for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Just as the president told the military to be ready, we've got high morale and training for whatever comes next!
