Comments: Good high school buddy. I enjoyed being on HS wrestling team

with you and Jimmy Akers. Have not lived in Roanoke since I

graduated from VMI in 1953. I am now 82 years old and think of

you and Jimmy often. I married a girl friend of Jimmy in May,

1954--Bebe Anne Hughes, who had a date with Jimmy the night that

he left Roanoke, VA for Korea. I lost Bebe in March, 2013 after

58+ years of happy marriage. I wish that you and Jimmy could

have had the happy life that I have had and we could have grown

old together. Hope to see you, Jimmy and Bebe again when my

time comes and we can revisit our years of growing up.







Your buddy forever, Bobby Cheatham

Comments: I am trying to see if I can locate anyone who might remember a William "Bill" Faulkner from the 7th. I am a Marine Vet and Paramedic, Mr. Faulker is a patient that I have made a connection with and have begun to visit on my off days. We have a great time and even on is bad days he remembers only me as his "Marine Buddy" even when he cant recall much else. He has trouble here and there and is only able to communicate to me that he was in the 32nd Inf and 7th Inf in Korea. I am assuming he means the 7th Inf Div and the 32 Inf Reg of the Army. His eyes light up everytime we speak about Korea and I would love to bring some history for him the next time I make a visit.

Here is the problem, his sons say he is a Marine but I can find no history of unit with the 32nd designation in the Marine Archives. The 7th Marine Reg is all I can locate, but with no 32nd anything to be found elsewhere. If anyone might be able to help it would be greatly appreciated. We communicate mostly through short sentences and pointing so it can be tough to get focused in on the details. Regardless of him being a Marine or not he wants to talk about it and I'd love to help him, he has become a good friend to me.

By the way, even though we have our communication issues, I went for a visit the other day and he was on the roof cleaning off the leaves, he had also cut the lawn, 1 and 1/2 acres, here's the kicker we live in Florida and the Heat index was 108 that day.

Comments: I am looking for information that anyone may have on SSGT William Ullmann. SSGT Ullmann was my great uncle. I am trying to find information for our family and SSGT Ullmann's surviving sister, Ruth. We know very little about his time in country, his activities or his friends in the Marine Corp. We would like information on the circumstances surrounding his death.
He was MIA for nine months (missing July 19, 1953). He was later confirmed KIA on July 19, 1953. He served with distiction and was wounded six separate times, but returned to fight the enemy. My uncle was an excellent Marine. Please help us learn more about his service by passing this request along to any one you think could help.

SSGT Ullmann was originally from Wyckoff NJ. Enlisted in late 1940s, reenlisted several times until his death in combat. His sisters name is now Ruth Moloney.

Sgt. Robert F. Touchette was hit and fell exposed to enemy fire. He would be dead as soon as the Chinese spotted him. I called to Haffey and we ran out under incredible heavy enemy fire to retrieve Touchette. We got to him and dragged him to a nearby hole. He was in bad shape. Haffey and I ran back to the fight and the enemy machine gunners in a bunker spotted us. They open up on us and I made it back to our original position. Haffey was cut down by the enemy fire. He died instantly. He was one brave and tenactious Marine. Touichette was awarded a Medal but Haffey never received a single award despite the fact that he gave his life to save Touchette.

It is vital that the memories of those who were there are not left out of the historical record and too many people today forget or never knew what Korea was like.
