Elgin, Forest Park, IL, passed away on 12/31/01. He soldiered in the 24th Infantry Division, Fox Company, in Korea 1951-52. This is a way of remembrance that his family would like. Keep up the good work. I will try to send a monthly stipend."

Anthony's obituary reads in part: "Anthony Christopher McNulty, 73, native of Belfast, Northern Ireland, cherished brother of Bridget (John) Scott, Nina (the late John) Friel, Brendan, Rosemary McNulty, Margaret (John) Peterson and the late James, Henry, Mary, Joseph, Gerald, Imelda and Charles; beloved uncle of Patrick (Candace), Brendan (Roxanne) McNulty, Theresa Scott (Bob McHugh), Catherine (the late William) Walker, Rosemary Scott (Alan Gee), Patricia Scott (Jimmie) Albrecht and Sean (Mags) Friel; loving uncle and great-uncle to many in the USA, Ireland and England.

Frank (Franz) Pramberger

Gift of $50 to the KWE's Endowment Fund given in his memory by his son, Thomas G. Pramberger.

"I am writing to thank you for the creation and maintenance of the Korean War Educator website. My father, Frank (Franz) Pramberger, was a veteran of the Korean War in the U.S. Army. When I was growing up my father rarely spoke about his service. It was not until his death on June 22, 1998 that I realized he had received a Silver Star. My father emigrated from Germany in 1950 and was proud to be an American and to have served his country. While in the process of renewed interest in the Korean War and my father's service I came across your wonderful website.

I have enclosed a copy of the citation for his Silver Star on which there are the citations of three other brave servicemen. I hope you find that copy helpful in updating the citation portion of your website. In addition, I have also enclosed a contribution that I would like you to accept on behalf of my father, Frank Pramberger. Thank you again for all of your hard work and determination on behalf of the veterans and their families." - Thomas G. Pramberger, New York

From April 1949 to August 1950, Wil was a platoon leader in E Company and G Company for the 2nd battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division. In Korea, he was assigned to a weapons platoon and later to the Pioneer and Ammunition Platoon. He served in Korea September 1950 to January 1951.

Lt. Frank L. Roach

Gift of $100.00 given in his memory by: Frank A. Folk, MD. CO, Easy Med, 1953.  This memorial gift was placed in the KWE's Web Hosting Fund in Lt. Frank Roach's memory.

Lt. Frank L. Roach, USNR, was a Navy Doctor who served at "Easy" Medical Company, First Marine Division in the field in Korea 1952-1953. Easy Med, located at the railhead at Munsan-Ni and close to Panmunjom, supported the First Marine Division at its eastern sector.  Frank was the Division Psychiatrist and was stationed with us. He treated the wounds--beyond the physical--of our Marines at Easy Med and was also called to consult at Able and Charlie Companies. His compassionate care, coupled with his professional skill, not only helped ease the pain of the wounded, but also elevated the morale of the corpsmen and doctors. When he was "off-duty" his concern was evident as he continued to bear the burdens of others. On discharge from the service he returned to his devoted wife, Fran, and family. He continued to serve his 'boys' as staff psychiatrist at the VA Hospital, Hines, Ilinois until his untimely death in 1986. He is at peace on his beloved Washington Island, Wisconsin.
