Photo of US Soldiers During Korean War

I’m slowly going through the photos and other memorabilia that have been handed down to me from my relatives. Because some of the items could be of interest to others, I thought I would start posting a few to the blog. Today, I am posting a photo of the company my dad was in during the Korean War. I have tried to list the names that were on the back so they could be picked up by a search engine if their family is looking for them online. But not all were legible so I did the best I could. I also was not sure if all were listed, and the names don’t necessarily correspond to those in the photo. If you want a copy of the photo for your own family records, I have posted it on Flickr here:

The permissions are that you can use it for your own use, but you cannot sell it or use it for commercial purposes. If you recognize anyone, want to add a name not listed, or correct a name I have incorrectly transcribed, just email me at pbroviak at borowiakfamily dot com

(I wish I knew more about where the photo was taken, but my dad was in a few places during the war such as Ft. Leavenworth and Ft Worth so not sure where exactly this one was taken at.)
