I'm sure he received a Navy Cross for his part in that situation.
I have sent for a copy of his records.
He passed away in 1992.

Any suggestion as to why I don't find his name in lists of veterans or recipients of awards?

Comments: I am currently writing a biography of 4 brothers, all of whom were/are veterans, 2 deceased who served in World War II, and 2 who served during the Korean Conflict time period. One brother was in the Marines, the 2nd Floating Bridge Company, Fleet Marine Force, Platoon 703. In our interviews, Frank Loin says he does not know what happened to the 1st company, except that it was wiped out. It would be interesting to Frank's story to include what happened to the company before him. I must admit that I am quite curious. I have read over several reports about the 1st Floating Bridge Company that have been declassified, but I have not uncovered the fate of the men. Can anyone help?

Comments: My father, John Muellauer, just passed away on June 12, 2014 & I found out out he was one of the Chosin Frozen. I always knew he fought in Korea and had gotten frost bite & that his time there was was horrific so he never spoke of it much. I believe he was 1st Marine 2nd battalion , 5th division. I am so proud of him and all who fought & am looking for anybody who may have known him at this time. I have always been proud to be an American and wanted to pursue ROTC while in college but my parents were extremely against it. It was only after his death that I was told that it was because of his experience at the Chosin Reservoir that he vowed none of his children (6) would go into the military. His last days were spent in hospice & the nurse described images to my bro & I of images he was seeing & we could tell he was describing being surrounded in the war again. It pains me he had to relive that horror. So please, any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. I also believe my uncle, Karl Muellauer served in same area.

chance to tell him I was sorry for the years I held him
in such low regard. He died tragically in an
accidental fall some years ago. I knew he had served
in the Korean War but as long as I knew him he never
ever mentioned his service much as my father never
talked much about his service in the AAF during WWII.
After my stepfather died, I went through his personal
effects and found something of his service record. He
served with the First Marine Division in some
intelligence function. He landed in Korea at Wosan and
was at Chosin Reservoir. He had attained the rank of

Doctors did not expect my Mom and me to both survive. They wanted my Dad near in the event they could only save one, He would have to choose; His wife or his son.

As it turned out we both survived.

I learned later that my Dad's unit was later destroyed. He lived a life of guilt believing he should have been there and died with his men.

I was told growing up that I saved my Dad's life by being a problem pregnancy.

I think he hated me for that. I am glad I was not an orphan. He served nearly 16 years in

Comments: It's been several years since my Dad left us , for now. Seems like it was only yesterday on some days. I post this to salute my Dad , an active duty veteran, Marine, who served in the Korean War.

I remember him swapping war stories with some of the Korean War and WW II veteran friends, when they would stop in and visit.

I think one fellow Marine he served with stayed in touch also. He was a decent man. Anyone who knew him would tell you that.

Floyd Wright, Jr. (or Junior to his friends), I salute you for your service to your country, your honor and integrety, loyal service to God, Family and Country!

Amen.

Comments: My dad was a Navy Corpsman attached to the 1st Marine Division in Korea. He participated in the battle at Chosin Reservoir and was wounded.

He returned home and married Barbara Lynn Dickson of Heber Springs, Ar in 1953. He was the proud father of 4, myself, the oldest am Lynn Wood Berky. I have a brother David Michael Wood, Sisters Jeanne Wood and Dana Wood Tull. He had five beautiful granddaughters, all of whom he knew except the last. She was named
after him, Samantha Wood. She was born five months after he passed away. He died from cancer on Oct. 12, 1993.

He never was one for the medals and honors bestowed upon him, never talked about the war with any of us save my mom and my brother. He went into that war a very compassionate, religious and generous man. He came back with the same qualities but with an added sadness that plagued him the rest of his life, along
with chronic damage to his feet from frostbite. He didn't have the temperament to have been there but serve he did, as did all who were called to go. He never recovered from what he experienced there.

I hope that he made the lives of the men he treated for their injuries just a bit more easy. He cried because he couldn't save them all.

If anyone out there has any memories to share please let me know. I want to know more about my fathers youth that the Korean War stole from him.

Thank you for letting me pour my heart and pain out in this way. It helps me to talk about him.

Sincerely,

Lynn Wood Berky
