Comments: My father, Charles H. McDaniel, was a senior medic at Unsan when the Chinese Communist Army overran the 3rd BN on the night of 1Nov1950. He went MIA. The recent return of remains from North Korea included one dog tag that was his. This helped lead to a quick identification of remains associated with the box as his.


If anyone has further information on that night relating to him or the situation, please respond. Our experience also offers hope to other families who still seek confirmation. So please offer DNA if you are a close relative.

Comments: 22 years ago, my late husband and I had the opportunity to combine his work and our honeymoon with a trip to Washington DC. It was the Memorial Day weekend and there were many vendor booths in the National Mall. We stopped by one that was taking donations for POW bracelets. I'd never seen one close up and reached in without looking. I was stunned when I read the name Leonard M. Kennedy. It was my maiden name and married name with my initial in the middle. It gave me the chills and still does. I had to have it. I never wore it as it was intended but I kept it preserved in a drawer and would take it out sometimes and think about the fallen soldier and his family. Now that the soldiers are coming back to the US for proper burial it made me curious whether he was one of them. I see the family has provided DNA and my prayer is that they will find him so he can be reunited with his relatives and properly laid to rest.

We have many questions from information we attained after all these years.

Comments: I read the message from a lady whose father came home from the Korean War a much different man then when he went to serve. This situation occurs in many military persons who serve in war and combat. Of additional interest was her father was in the same unit as my Uncle Robert (Bob) P. McDermond, a Corporal. I do not remember much about my Uncle Bob as I was an infant when he went to war. He was captured at Unsan, North Korea. He was only 18 years of age and died in 1951 at 19 years old in North Korean Prison Camp 5. A couple of years ago, there was a paper that a grad student had done regarding Unsan and the 8th Regiment I read it on line and it added quite a bit of details that my Dad and uncles (brothers to my Uncle Bob) could never find out. No one wanted to talk about what happen at Unsan in the 1950's and it appears the grad student's paper has been taken off the internet. If interested, the 3rd Bn, 8th Calvary Regiment's Chaplain was Chaplain Emil Kapaun. You may already know about Chaplain Kapaun as he was awarded the Medal of Honor a few years ago. He died in the same prison camp as my uncle about the same time. I understand he is being considered for sainthood in the Catholic Church. I am sure to the men he served, he was a Saint. There are several books written about Chaplain Kapaun which provide some insight to the conditions of the prison camp...of which I understand Camp 5 may have been the worst. Well, to you on behalf of your father, please accept my thanks for his service to our country.

Comments: I am assisting a family friend who lost his brother, Roland L. LeBlanc of Manchester, NH, and a member of Company B, 1st Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, at Unsan, Korea on November 2, 1950. I believe Roland was a replacement, as his last letter home was written from Pusan, and he mentioned that he was part of a 200 truck convoy headed to the 1st Cavalry Division because of the recent losses. His family believes that this was in October 1950. If anyone knew Roland LeBlanc in Korea, and/or the circumstances around his MIA status on the night of 1-2 November 1950, please contact me. From my studies of the battle, I know the situation was quite chaotic, but any information would help. Roland's brother is to receive his awards and decorations from the Department of the Army in the near future, and we would like as much information as possible.

It appears that he was wounded on or about July 31st 1950. That was just over a week after the Division went online in the Pusan Perimeter and immediately engaged the NKVA. His unit was the 8th Cav which had most of its senior NCOs previously stripped to fill the ranks of the 24th ID after the heavy losses of the first few weeks.

My brother Donald L. Baer was in K company 3/34 Regt 24th Division when he arrived in Korea on July 2, 1950.


The Shield from the 1ST Cavalry Division 8th Cav. Regt. Troop G was either sent home with his personal effects left in Japan on 7/2/1950 or issued sometime after his lost date of 7/20/50.

How can I find a list of the Troop G 8th Regt. stationed in Japan during 1948-1949?

Can anyone from Troop G tell me it was issued by their company? My army casuality officer has stated that it was not an official army issued metal. This is large in reference to the purple heart metal. Does it have any reference to disinterment of remains in the temporary cemeteries in Korea?

He says that his unit (I think it was the 8th Cav Reg, 3rd Bn) never set foot on Korean soil. He said that his unit did participate in amphibious exercises, but only along coastal Japan. Can anyone verify that?

My next question is this: if an individual stayed in Japan this entire period, do they qualify for the Korean War Service Medal, and United Nations Korean War Service Medal?

Comments: I would like to find any living troopers who served under my Dad, Lt/Capt Mario Estrada. Especially on the date of Feb 4 1951 during a particularly brutal assault on Hill 30 in order to break through to the siege of Chip Yong Ni. My Dad received the Silver Star for his actions that day and many have said that he deserved the Medal of Honor. If you were there please contact me. I also know MUCH information about the Eighth's battles of October/November 1951.

Comments: I am looking for information as to what my Dad did during his time in the Korean War. His first unit was Co. K, 8th Cav. Regt. from 15th of Nov. 1950 to 4 Feb. 1951. After that he was listed as HQ 3 Bn, 8th Cav. Regt. I do know that he was awarded a bronze star, but do not know what for and where. Would like to know what battles he took part in. My Dad passed away on July 4th, 2 yrs. ago. He never talked about his service in either Korea or World War II.

Comments: I recently found out my grandfather Lyle J Sasse was a korean war veteran but hardly anyone in my family knew or had no information on it (he sadly suffered from alzthiemers and dementia). I found out from VetRecs.gov that he was in HQ 2nd Bat. 8th Cav. in Korea and earned the Korean Service Medal with 2 bronze service stars. My uncle recalls he was shot while over there but was unsure. Other than that information i have no idea anything about this part of his life. If anyone has any Information that could help me I would greatly appreciate it. thanks for your time.
