Subject: Searching for info: Cpl John Ralph Letnar
I have very confusing bits of information about my father, who passed away when
I was only five.
John Letnar joined the service in May of 1943. His formal military photo
shoes him wearing a Trident patch.
In Sept of 43, he was sent to Grinnell College for ASTP and remained there until
March 7 of '44.
My aunt tells me that from there he was sent directly to Europe with Pattons 3rd
(She thought his basic training was in Missouri?) The next information I
have is his being wounded
near the Saar River in Germany, his unit working with engineers to "blow
He was wounded & sent to the 158th U.S. General Hospital in England for
recovery and awarded a Purple Heart.
That was reported in our local newspaper in April of 1945. The next
concrete information I have is his
belonging to the 64th Fighter Wing in Dec of 1945, still in Europe.
His footstone states he was a member of the Army Air Corps, but I believe he was
an Infantry man up until he was wounded. !
I also cannot rely on the 97th Trident patch, as many were not sent back
to their units after ASTP,
but shipped elsewhere. My godfather always said he was a munitions expert,
he blew up things.
He was awarded the Combat Infantry Badge, the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star,
Good Conduct Medal
and the badges for rifle and auto rifle. I have been in contact with
several of the members of the
64th fighter wing with no success. He could not have spent much time with
the group, except for the last
few months he was in Europe. I am still waiting after submitting a request
to Military History Records,
6 months later. If any of you reading this has any new ideas for me or
knows of any information you can share,
please email me at Mylittlewillow@aol.com
Thanks and good luck to all of us searching for some answers!

Subject: Task Force Dog.... Rear guard for Chosin withdrawal.
While researching my father's (very brief, to me), verbal history of his time as
commander of the 3rd Bat. of the 7th I started with a dearth of
information. Dad (Lt. Col. Thomas O'Neil),told me of the 3rd Battalion of
the 7th's fight to the death with the multitude of Chinese Divisions in its rear
guard action during the Marine withdrawal from the Chosin Res. Initial
contact with members of the 7th Reg. brought responses that were universal in
the claim that the 7th and the balance of the 3rd Div. merely held the ring
around the port from which the marines and the 3rd Div. were evacuated.
Further research proved that the 3rd of the 7th was, in fact, in the thick of
the withdrawal from the Chosin and were actually the last troops out of the
Chosin Reservoir area (Slightly South of it) as they held the rear guard
position. In their holding position The 3rd of the 7th was cut off by the
Chinese as they held the rear of the Marine withdrawal.
The 3rd of the 7th had to independently fight its way through
the many Chinese Divisions to the Port. They were called "Task Force
Dog" and have been ignored by history to the point that even fellow 7th
Regiment soldiers are unaware of their travail. It is a fascinating tale, albeit
practically unknown to anyone not directly involved in the operation.
There is little mention of Task Force Dog in any Army communications (that I
have read), extending even to the daily Regimental Combat reports for the late
November/December period. I would appreciate hearing from any veterans
that were involved with Task Force Dog in its fight to the death through the
attacking Chinese Army. Task Force Dog was composed of the 3rd of the 7th, a
battalion of the 65th Inf. Regiment, a company of mechanized artillery and a
company of Combat Engineers.

Subject: Information about Father in WW1
I have been trying to find information about my Father who was in CO G 30th Inf

never would talk
much about the war. I know that he was wounded and gassed in France, but

He had the Purple Heart with and oak leaf cluster. I would like to know

Subject: Question for any possible veterans
My name is Stephen Ward and I am a senior in high school here in Grapevine,
I am working on my senior paper and I have a question that I would very much
appreciate some veterans
being able to answer; if you could possibly pass this along to any veterans
it would be very beneficial to my research.
My question, and my paper thesis, is "How do modern
films such as Saving Private Ryan
as opposed to older ones such as The Dirty Dozen or The Longest Day affect how
and appreciate what was done by American "citizen soldiers" during
World War Two?"
Also, it's not just films, what are your thoughts on TV
shows, books, the way that soldiers
from WWII are portrayed? What do you think about how WWII GI's are
portrayed and shown in
post-war and modern media?
I would really appreciate any thoughts you have, and if you are able to provide
some input I would
also like your permission to quote you in my paper as well; you will receive
full credit for your
assistance with this. Well, thanks for taking the time to read this and
taking some time to respond.
