The following are taken from his notes-any errors are probably mine.
He served in the Dog Co, 2nd Battalion, Fifth Marines as a Corpsman 3rd Class under Col. "Chesty" Puller and "Muletrain" Moorehead of the Motor Pool HQ.
Landed Pusan, 8/2/50, committed to battle perimeter, on to Teague, Tejan, Miryang Woods, Wolmido Island- Inchon, Kimpo Seoul, then back to 38th Parallel, Hung Nam, Koto-Ri, Roundtop, Chosin Res. Yalu River, retreated back to Ham Hung and finally evacuated on the hospital route ending up at Yokosuka Naval Hospital in Japan, December 8th 1950 where he spent six months recuperating from his wounds and frostbite.

If you served with Dad he'd be delighted to hear from you----Thanks, John Jr.

Comments: Nov 2000
Dear Sirs,

   Birthday greetings for your 225th anniversary. I do not know if the occasion will be as elaborate as fireworks at your home, or merely a raised glass, but I hope the day finds you happy and healthy.
   Please excuse my reliance on a much better writer than myself, but I was thinking of Lincoln’s dedication at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania when he says that the brave men, living and dead, have consecrated the field far above our poor power to add or detract. I too feel inadequate expressing my gratitude and admiration for those engaged above the 38th parallel, this autumn, fifty years ago. And beggar that I am, I am even poor in thanks, but I thank you.
   I wish my friend, Charlie Durant (F/2/5) and his lovely wife, Barb were still with us but I wanted to remember their generosity and his participation.
   Although Charlie never said anything to me about Korea; I can’t help but think if I had asked, he would have paused from enjoying his strawberry daiquai and said something like, “It was damn cold”, and probably left it at that. I remain -
          Your humble servant,
Rob Radoslovich
