PFC John H. Coskey

I am assisting the sister of the late PFC John H. Coskey. He was a member of Co. K, 3rd BN, 21st INF, 24th DIV., when he was captured near Chochiwon on or about 28 JUL 1950. He was reported to have died in a POW camp near Chungangjin on 28 NOV 1950.

Today, I saw an on-line story about PFC James R. Holmes. His remains were recently identified through DNA and he will finally be buried at Arlington on 29 MAY 2014. The fact that caught my eye was that Holmes and Coskey were both in Company K. I have already started a search for any remaining members of PFC Holmes’s family.

My goal is to find someone in Company L who knew PFC Coskey and is willing to speak with his 85 year old sister.
