He was in the 9th Infantry, HQ CO 1 BN and was captured on Nov. 30, 1950 near the Chongchon River, near Kunu-Ri.

Comments: My name is Linda Ostendorf LaFond. I am the niece of Robert Henry Ostendorf who was killed at Bloody Ridge in Korea August 1951. My brother, Bob, gave DNA just in case our uncle Bob's remains are returned or located. I am wondering if they do find remains, who would be contacted? I would like to have either my brother, Bob Ostendorf, 651-633-8837 or myself, Linda Ostendorf LaFond, 763-571-6937, roger.linda66@comcast.net be notified. Our aunt recently passed away and she passed information on to us. We are praying that some day he will be returned to the family and we can have a proper burial for him. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks for all the work you have been doing thus far. Blessings to you all. Linda On a side note, my husband is a decorated combat vet serving in the Vietnam war 1968-69 with the 25th Infantry Division. My brother is a Marine who served during the Vietnam war. Thanks again!

Comments: I'm not a veteran, but my grandfather was in Korea and was hoping maybe someone might remember him. Cpl (maybe Sgt) John O'Neill. He was in the 9th Infantry Regiment but I don't know which battalion or company. His MOS was listed as auto mechanic but he was a veteran of WWII all the way back to Pearl Harbor (he was a Sgt and BAR man back then). He was from Brooklyn and had a heavy Brooklyn Irish accent, so hoping someone might remember him. He passed away in 1979 (the Camels finally got him).

He was wounded Nov 30 1950, mostly likely running the Gauntlet back to Sunchon. I'm trying to confirm which company (or at least which battalion) because the 1st battalion did not run the Gauntlet, but the 2nd and 3rd did.

Hoping my grandfather's name is familiar.

Comments: Hi SSG Collins. I was one of your teammates at the dispensary. I'm trying to find some of the guys we worked with. You taught me how to give injections - you did a good job. Do you remember me? Do you have contact with any of the other guys? Give me a call. I would like to talk to you. Lawrence

Comments: My grandfather served in the 9th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Division during the timeframes of May 1951 thru ? His name was Wayne Moye and was from Sour Lake, Tx. Not sure if he had a nickname or not. He has always said he wished he would have gotten the actual name of a soldier who served during the same time and went by the nickname of Alabama. My grandfather was a Medic over A-L Companies (I believe) and said Alabama used to drive him everywhere. If anyone has any information or would like to reach out, please do.

Thanks to all who have served!
