Korean War Heroes

People from Scott County who served in Korean War.

Source information:  The list of names in the following table comes from the Veterans Memorial Wall in Huntsville.  The related information come from the National Archives Lists of Casualties from the Korean Conflict (1951-1957)Cemeteries of Scott County, Tennessee, and various obituaries.

I need your help to make this table complete.  Please email me with information that completes or corrects the table.  I would be particularly grateful for copies of obituaries, pictures of headstones, and pictures of the soldier.  I think others would be interested in knowing the specific military units in which these soldiers served and where in Korea they died.
