Hi, guys.

I'm reenacting and researching the shotgunner of the U.S. Marines from World War II in Korea.

It is also collecting personal and historical items from the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II.

I think I'll get a lot of help from this forum.

Nice to meet you.

Lee.

Welcome aboard. I, too, am interested in the Marines in the Korea War. It is an often overlooked part of our history

Hi, Brig.

Thanks for welcoming me. 


I think Korea has received a lot of help from the U.S. Marine Corps in the past, and I respect them.

Always looking for items from these men (family members):
Even if not to buy, to know where they are would be great.

Harry Riley - 62nd Armored Field Artillery Bn, Died August 13, 1944. Robert Lester Mahler - I/3/24, 4th Marine Div. WIA March 8, 1945.
Thomas R. Riley - USAAF Joshua L. Doherty - With a Seabee Unit, I believe.
Ens. Alex A. Gorski, USNR - Died as a POW, January 28, 1945. Capt. Henry Gorski, USN (ret.)
Remembering their service and sacrifice.

Welcome Lee!

I once had the pleasure of meeting the late Capt. Joe Owen USMC and hearing him speak about his experiences in the Korean conflict.  He is the author of “Colder than Hell: A Marine Rifle Company at the Chosin Reservoir” it, along with “The Last Stand of Fox Company” by Bob Drury and Tom Calvin are must reads in my opinion if you are interested in Marines in Korea and haven’t read them already.
