Comments: Hello I am looking for any information on a lieutenant Harold (Hal), Kiah. He served in the 7th Infantry Regiment in Korea but no idea as to what company. I am guessing his dates of service for Korea are 1950-1953. He also served in the 17th Cavalry Squadron and US Constabulary in Germany post WWII.

If anyone has as roster listing him or any other information I would greatly appreciate if you could let me know.

Thanks and thanks for your service! Allen

He always carried around a picture of a very pretty Korean girl in his wallet the rest of his life. He never would tell anyone about her. I would love to know if this is the right unit for sure and if he was an infantryman or a medic for sure?

The Division was in the Iron Triangle area near Chorwon.

He was sent to Korea on or after Nov of 1950 when the Division moved in to
the Wonson area to provide blocking protection for the Marines and 7th
Inf Div who were retreating from the Chosin Reservoir.

He was returned to duty in August, as were many thousands of others who
were wounded and determined to go back to fight. He was a proud Veteran and American. We miss him alot. He lived to be a grandfather and died of a heart attack in July of 1992.

Here are the circumstances surrounding his MIA. Does anyone know him or know of anything about him?

GENERAL MILITARY SITUATION AND CIRCUMASTANCES OF LOFF: PFC (then priivate) Voreh was a member of the
2nd Battalion, 7th Infatry Regiment. On April 24, 1951 Voreh's unit, (the heavy weapons company of the battalion) was located to the East of Chongong-ni about three lilometers North of the 38th Parrallel and midway between Yonchon and Tongduchon in present-day South Korea. It's sister battalion (3rd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment) was located to the southwest, just outside Chongong-ni, so that the defensive positions of the two battalions skirted the MSR, Main Supply Route that ran southward to Tongduchon. On April 24th, both battalions came under heavt Chinese attack, but were able to halt the Chinese advance and withstand repeated assaults throughout the day and into the evening. Heavy fighting continues throughout the night, and on the morning of April 25th, the Chinese intensified their attacks on the 2nd and 3rd Battalions, presenting their main line of resistance (MLR). Orders were received for the Battaltions to withdraw while holding contact with advancing Chinese forces. Upon reaching the small town of Popsudong, the 2nd Battalion confronted more Chinese forces. After a short firefight, Chinese forces dispersed. It was during this activity near Popsudong that PFC Voreh became missing, although the exact circumstances and location are unknown. Based on the incident date, he became lost during his unit's engagement with a large Chinese force between Chongong-ni and Popsudong, to the East of the MSR going North from Tongduchon. We have no information to indicate the enemy captured PFC Voreh during this fighting. Returning Prisoners od War did not mention having seen or heard of PFC Voreh in the POW camp system.

Comments: I would like to contact anyone who knew Okie the M Co. Mess Sergeant in late 1953 and
early 1954 in the lower Chorwon valley.

He was a master at making good meals from the rations that were issued. His chow was
so good that a lot of other personnel, including many officers, that just happened to
be in the area around meal times. We became good friends and made trips to the
railhead to pick up rations.

I took him to the railhead when he rotated home, later ran into him at Ft. Lewis, WA.
under stressful circumstances. When he was discharged I took him to Seattle-Tacoma
Airport on his way home.

Like a dummy I didn't get his real name or where to contact him later.All I know is
that he was from Oklahoma, hence the nickname. He was a true friend and I don't know
how he came to be discharged from where he was at the time. Please contact me with
any info.
Thanks.

Comments: My grandfather was a light weapons infantryman during the Korean
War, and I know that he was wounded in Sept. of 1952. I do not
know, however, what company, or platoon what he was in, nor do I
know what his unit was doing during that month. I am now an
Infantryman who has served in Afghanistan and I would love nothing
more that to hear more information on the unit during this brief
time in its history, and I would enjoy even more hearing from some
who may have known my grandfather during this time or has any
information on him.

Comments: I'm looking for any information that you remember about my

father from the Korean War. He discussed digging bunkers and

sleeping in them, dressing wounds and the calls he heard for

medic, going out on night patrol to try capture enemies, using

the word Johnney, in the dark, trying to save enemies lives

for information (holding an enemies hand as their were dying and

not being able to speak Korean to them.) He told me a one story

where he was leading the line, something told him to run so he

started running, their was an explosion and the man right behind

him in line was calling for a medic. The man behind him was so

injured he died before they were able to get him back for help.

Comments: I am the grandson of PFC CHARLES BLEVINS or Charlie from Grayson
Kentucky, he served in the 3rd infantry division of the 7th infantry regiment. I don't
know what company he was in. He passed away in 2006 and he wouldn't talk
about the war much, I was wondering if anyone out there knew him and knew
some more details of his service. Any information would be greatly appreciated
by the whole family.

Comments: My grandfather Earl L. Fairchild Jr was in Korea 1951/52 and
according to his DD-214 he was with the Heavy Tank Co, 7th
Infantry Regiment. His initial training was done at Camp Rucker
Alabama in early 1951 and at that time he was with the 194th tank
battalion. I am having one hell of a time trying to narrow my
search as all of the documents I have seam to be from different
companies, battalions etc. If anyone out there knew my
grandfather or has any information on the Heavy Tank Co I would
be very interested to hear from you. I have several pictures of
his buddies at what i assume is Camp Rucker. The only full name
listed was Jimmy Callens or possibly Lemmy Callens or Collins
dated June 51 another simply says Bud and another Dan. The
signature Bud is unique in that the letter D is carried below the
other letters with two hash marks through it. The picture signed
Dan is one with a gentleman outside a building, snow on the
ground and he has a Border Collie on a leash. From what i have
found out so far was he was at Heartbreak Ridge and I also heard
a story of his tank being disabled on the battlefield surrounded
by Chinese if memory serves me correct and they were pulled to
safety by a tank recovery vehicle. My Grandfather passed away in
1995 so all i have are fragments of his military history and
would love to be able to reconstruct this portion of his life for
my family to share. I thank you in advance for any information.
