Comments: My Dad Ken was in the Signal Service Battalion, Army Unit 8189 from 1952 - 1953. We're celebrating Dad's 80th birthday this year and would love to connect him with anyone who knew him.

Also, Dad and some of his army buddies helped a young Korean escape to the U.S. Dad has often wondered what happened to him.

Would love to hear from you if you knew Dad or have any ideas how we can connect with people who knew him in the army.

Thanks much, Denisa
