CPL John P. Pingree


My name is Kelli Pingree and I am seeking more information about my 
father-in-law who was a POW in the Korean War. I found the information below on the Korean War Ex-POW website. 

Name: John P. Pingree (CPL)
Unit 7D
Camp 5
Pyokdong near Pyoktong

He was held for 3 years, I believe during 1950-53 (maybe) I also know he received several medals for his time served which I think includes a Purple Heart. 

He lived in CA and also in WA State where he passed in 2000. After being released he was married over 30 years and has 4 sons, 1 daughter and 8 grandkids. 

If you have any other information and or photos, our family would be so grateful. 
I look forward to hearing from you.

Kelli Pingree
