Comments: My father T-SGT Richard Bohn served in VMC-1 in Korea as an electronic countermeasures operator from Feb 1953 to Feb 1954. He then was sent to a recon unit in Opa Locka, Fla. (where I was born) then rejoined VMC-1 in Feb 1956 in Kaneohe, Hawaii until his death in a Skyraider accident in July 1957. I still have his flight log book which documents all the missions he flew in Korea as well as many pictures. I shared some of these with members of the Marine Corps Aviation Reconnaissance Association and would like to hear from anyone who served with my father.

Comments: After leaving the Marine Corps Dad returned to
Pittsburgh and in 1958 joined the Pittsburgh Police his rookie year was almost his last was
ambushed in an alley and was severly pistol whipped, he went on to become a Gold Badge Detective, went back to school and obtained his
masters, he retired in 1985 and started a private
investigative firm and in 1987 he was on the T.V.
series Unsolved Mysteries, in 1993 he passed away.

Keywords: Dad was in Korea I believe 1952-1953 I know he was a corporal and before he left there he was a
sergent and left the marine corps a staff sergent
serial number was 1298715, i believe he was with
vmc-1 but donot know he did mom said she thinks
he was trained in radio's, I know he flew on one
flight in a radar variant of AD Skyraider, mom
says he flew more than ounce. the family would
like to find what he did and was vmc-1 the only
unit he was with or where there others, in 1967
we were at the worlds fair in canada a man came
up from behind and approached dad and said goddamn
he used nickname "stosh", I know the back of that
head anywhere I followed it all over korea!
Thats why we wonder was he with vmc-1 the whole
time also we have a squadren photo and we cant see
him in it.
