Topics - Rosters

Most Korean War veterans are now either retired or semi-retired. With their children now grown, many Korean War veterans find that they have extra time in their lives to try to renew old acquaintances with their buddies from the Korean War. Unfortunately, some of their buddies were only known by nicknames such as "Smitty" or "Little Joe." Even if their last name was known once upon a time, it is possible that too many years have now passed to remember them. Often times too, the exact spelling of the buddy's last name is not now, nor ever was, known. Neither was his or her home town of record. To assist veterans in their efforts to try to locate the names of their buddies, this page of the Korean War Educator was created to post rosters submitted to the KWE by veterans and others. Send your roster to Lynnita Brown.
