Comments: My Great Uncle Joseph "Joe" Maloney served in the Korean War from 1949-1951. He passed away last week, God rest his soul. He had a really old Photo of himself and Pvt. Wendel Schurr and Lt. George Nelson. Was looking to see if any of their families are on here so i can forward along a copy of the photo and news article from Jersey Journal.

He also kept a photo album with a lot of photos from his unit. I have a few saved on my phone that I can forward along. One photo has 10 members of his unit in it. Great piece of history.

Comments: I have attended two reunions of the 7th Cav Korean War Vet. Assoc. I had many severe medical issues and have lost touch with the men who served with my father Capt Harold Gray. If there are any of you men still with us I would thank you in advance if you could get in touch with me. Thank you very much for the love you guys had for my father and the stories you have told me when we met helped me a great deal learning what kind of man my father was. Unfortunately I was born six weeks after he was taken from us so the only way I got to learn a little bit about the commander he was , wad through you men

Grace Tyler is my Dad's first cousin. Found no service history on Ancestry which is strange.

Found this Article at the Aledo Historical Society and would like to know more about this man and I wonder if the flag is in a museum.:

The Associated Press said the soldiers are Sergeants (first class) Ray E. Peterson, route 3, Aledo, and William Brown,, Salinas, Calif. They got the flag from a North Korean soldier who surrendered to them at Peakchon, just south of the 38th parallel.

Remembering that President Truman has a flag collection hobby, the two sergeants mailed it to the chief executive.

Sergeant Peterson, 37, has been in Korea since August with the First cavalry division's Seventh regiment. He served in the Pacific theater during the Second World war and married Miss Grace Tyler, Aledo

Comments: I am interested in locating anyone who knew PFC Norris P. McCoy, 7th Cav Rgmt, 1st Cav Div, in Korea, in Oct 1951. On 11 Oct 1951 and along the DMZ, an advance element of a previously undetected attacking North Korean force approached the outpost where PFC McCoy was a lone machine gunner. PFC McCoy engaged the enemy force with machine gun fire and when he had exhaust his machine gun ammunition, he continued to engage the enemy with his rifle, though seriously wounded. His lone action, resulted in approximately 100 enemy KIA; stalled the enemy's forward progress; and afforded the 7th Cav Rgmt to move, from a stand-down posture, into its defensive positions.

But for PFC McCoy's lone act of heroism, the outcome of the battle would likely have been disastrous for the 7th Cav Rgmt. Yet, PFC McCoy was never awarded a medal of valor. I seeking the correct that oversight. Anyone that knew PFC Norris P. McCoy and the specific 7th Cav Rgmt troop that he was assigned/attached to/or has first hand knowledge or facts of the engagement and its exact location or battle, as described above, please contact me ASAP.

I believe Ochon-ni was somewhere in between Osan and Ichon. It is quite possible that the town names have since been changed slightly making research that more difficult.

In the early morning hours of October 12, 1951 he was captured by the Chinese while in command of the remnants of A and C Companies and some of D Company. I believe this occurred on Hill 200 (he also notes that the hill was the last before a long valley, with the Imjin River in front of him and Old Baldy in front and to the right), though I know it was in the area of Hills 300 and 280 which his company and occupied and moved through the couple days before. Does anyone know anything about this action on 10/12/1951 or know where I can find a map showing the locations of these hills? Any additional information about this would be greatly appreciated.

Comments: I am trying to find pictures of my grandpa from when he served in
the 1st calvary 7th division tank commander. my grandpa passed
away in 2004, and i have still be unable to get over it. I would
really appreciate it if anyone has pictures of him to give them
to me, so i can give them to my dad as a fathers day gift. i
really don't know what he did while serving because he always said
that i am the only grand daughter and i didn't need to worry my
pretty face about the things that happened.
As you can see this is very important for me to find out
information on him. I looked up to him, so if anyone has any
stories on him, funny things he use to say or do, and most
importantly any pictures of him; I would greatly appreciate these
things being shared with me, so i can then give them to my dad.
Please some one help me find these things.
grand-daughter in search,
nikki sunderman

Comments: While I think the Facebook link I included in my last post was valid, I have decided to
also post the photos in another place which I believe may be easier for most people to
see, so here is an additional link to the same photo collection:

Comments: My uncle Marvin Roy Hoffman from Chicago, IL died on 7/30/50 in Korea. information I
found online lists him as being a member of H CO 7 RGT 1 CAV DIV. I'm not military
myself, so I don't quite know how to read that. My best guess put me here, so this is
where I'm posting for starters. For what it's worth, records show him as a heavy
weapons infantryman.

My uncle, after whom I was named, was an avid photographer and took his camera with
him into the army. He took a great number of photographs in Japan and possibly Korea
(I can't really tell by looking at them, but at least one color slide had japan written on
it, and the architecture and natural landmarks in many of the pictures look Japanese to
me. Some writing on a sign in one photo looks Korean to me, so I'm guessing pics exist
from both locations.

Anyway, I've begun scanning the B and W negatives and color slides my late uncle left
behind, and will be posting them as I go on my Facebook page. The address for the
publicly-viewable album should be this:

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?
set=a.10200960010261703.1073741826.1209602846&type=3

If you, or anyone you know, can identify any of the people in these photos, I'd love it if
you'd tag them in Facebook or contact me via e-mail and let me know so I can tag them
or at least send scans of the images to the people in them (or their families).

I feel that it's a shame none of these photos ever saw the light of day (as far as I know)
and if even only one other person is touched by getting to see them, then I've done a
good thing for the men who fought alongside my uncle Marvin, who died before my
parents even met.

Thanks,

Mike Hoffman
