illham, Deward Ewell

I read your statement and wanted to list my brother, and hopefully find some information about him.  He is not listed with the others who died over there.  We only know he died in a disease area but had a laceration on his forehead.  He was only 16 and really should not have been there.  His name was Ewell Deward Gillihan.  He enlisted on 2/8/50 and died on 11/19/50.  He was in the 3728th Sq. Flt. 4802 U. S. Air Force.  I find nothing about him.  It's a shame that such a fine young man should die for his country and not even be listed among the dead.
If you can help me find any information or anyone who might have known him, please email me.
Thank you for serving our country and helping make this the great nation that it is.  May God bless and keep you.

My father served in the Korean War.  I am trying to locate any of his old buddies he served with.  It has been a few years and trying to come up with names is not the easiest thing to do.
Clifford Dean Meece served in the
11th Marines
1st Division

He was there from around March of 53 to August of 54.
He was right on the DMZ.  I don't know how to spell the place but it sounded like Pon Yeng.  I don't know if this is correct but it sure would be nice to try to find some of his old friends.  One was from Onarga, IL--One was from Champaign, IL--one was from Watseka, IL.  that was about all that we could come up with.  He said that the one from Champaign had the last name of Staudamire.
I don't really know where to go from here but will look until I can come up with something.  Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to offer.
Best Regards,
Daniel J. Meece

Valdez, Joseph     5/17/99

Although I don't qualify for your search criteria I'm hoping you might be able to provide me with some ideas. I'm not a veteran but an looking for one (maybe deceased).

Briefly, I'm an adopted child (female) who searched for and found part of my birth family. My mother, who says that my father was in the service (I believe Army) and was killed prior to my birth (Feb 9, 1953). Obviously, he had been home on leave prior to this time (maybe the May to June timeframe of  1952?). He lived in Washington state in the Toppenish - Grandview (near Yakima) area. Evidently had gone to high school there. The name she gave me was Joseph Valdez (that may not be the correct spelling). I'm sorry for sounding so vague, but the little information that I can obtain from my birth mother is vague. Her general and mental health is such that I  don't want to really press this issue, until I find out anything I can on my own. I would totally understand if you can't assist other than to suggest ideas for me to pursue. Any thoughts you may have will be appreciated.  Thank you,
