Comments: Sam Williams, my Dad was a young marine, I think involved with mortars, in the Chosin Reservoir. He suffered a minor bullet wound in the back thigh and had "freeze-problem feet" the rest of his life. Anybody remember anything about him. He didn't like to talk about it much, but we, his family are interested in knowing more now. He was from Galveston, Texas.

Keywords: Sam Williams, my Dad was a young marine, I think involved with mortars, definitely in the Chosin Reservoir.

Comments: I am desperately searching for ANYONE who knew and/or spoke to my brother while he was over in Vietnam. I must contact anyone who spoke with him or knew anything about him. He was very dear to me.
His name was John Arthur (possibly John G. Arthur). I have such limited info on him because after my brother was killed (here stateside) my family wouldn't speak of him then my family died. Though I was young, I was closest to him. Johnny died in California
(Los Angeles 1969) not long after returning from Vietnam. He may not have been a friendly type as my father brutally abused him before forcing him to join the Marines and go to Vietnam. I believe he towards the end of his time in Vietnam he was putting bodies together to ship them back stateside, but initially he was what I consider "ground fodder."
Please help me if you can. He was born in 1946 in the Panama Canal Zone. My father was James P. Arthur and my mother was from Ecuador, Nelida Coronel. Thank you so very much! Beatrice btrueatsou@yahoo.com

Comments: I am looking for anyone that served in Korea with my father, Alfred J. LeBlanc from Gardner Mass. I can't say concretely, but as I understand it, he was "1st marine, 1st brigade". Pork Chop Hill?
Any help would be appreciated.
God Bless all of you.

Comments: Was a PFC with Graves Registration Platoon, lst Marine Div, landed at Inchon. Established a morgue on Han River to handle KIA which were ferried across the river to us by AmTracs. Later became driver for S-3 officer, lst Supply Bn (or lst Support Bn, can't remember now). My officer was WIA at Chosin and evacuated. Was part of motorized convoy breaking out of Pusan perimiter in Spring of '51. Was first in my unit of Inchon landing to be rotated in July, 1951. Proud to be former Marine and prouder still to have been part of Chosin and "one of the most epic battles ever fought by U.S. Marines." Thank you (host) for this web site and for your efforts to keep the Korean War alive and honored.
