My dad was Sgt. Louis Gary Faust, United States Army, 7th Infantry Division, 13th Engineer Combat Battalion, Company C – who served in Korea between 1952-1954. We know very little about his service other than he hit a land mine while running a dozer at some point and struggled with his hearing the rest of his life. He always dreamed of returning to visit Korea but was not able to do that before he passed away in 2003

My dad served in the 13th ENGINEER COMBAT BATTALION. He passed away in 1987. I wish that he could have lived to see this day and age of computers. He would have loved to contact his old buddies. I recently found an old paper of his. It measures about 3 1/2″ X 21/2″. On it reads- THIS IS TO CERTIFY THAT T/5 WILLIAM B CHEKE 13TH ENGINEER COMBAT BATTALION APO#7 IS AUTHORIZED TO WEAR THE FOLLOWING DECORATIONS: 1 O/S BAR KOREAN OCC MED WORLD WAR 11 VICTORY MED A/P RIBBON, KARL R.
