Comments: I am looking for any information from anyone that might have know or served my grandfather, SP$ Beverly Murray. He was part of the 89th Medium Tank Battalion, 25 Infantry Division. His records were long those lost during the 1973 National Archives fire, ironically enough, the same year I was born. Papaw never spoke of his time in Korea, telling us only that he shot pineapples in Hawaii during the entirety of the war. As I cannot access his military records, and he passed away in 1984, there is a blank space in his life story I would like to tell my children and grandchildren about. My mother, Beverly Beb Murray's only child, knows no more than I do, and would like to know more about her father's life during this period. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much, Ryan S. Pack

Comments: Hello I'm Dashell Fittry. My grandfather was Sgt. Robert E. Gutshall, he was in the 89th medium tank Bn, and was in C company. I don't much about his war experiences because he died 10 years ago and I was too young to ask. I'm looking for anyone who may have known my grandfather. I would like to find out more about him, because my grandmother only knows so much. He was also in WWII. Please e-mail me with anything you may know about him.
Thanks,
Dashell Fittry
