These photos were taken at Camp Mower, Japan before being shipped to Korea. Donald Baer is seated on the left side in these two photos. I’m wanting to know the names of the other three men in the photos. I would also love to hear from someone who knew my brother in Japan or Korea.

    HI Janet, I’m Gary Haynes. We have a Facebook group for vets and surviving family members of the 34th Infantry regiment from all eras. I served with the 34th from 77-79 and 81-83. One of our group members had made a post in our group about Donald a few years back. I stumbled across it yesterday while doing research and thought that it needed up dating. Well that led me to this moment. I would like to invite you if you are involved with Facebook to join our group at 34th Infantry Regiment Dragons lair. We have maybe 240 members,, including 4 living vets from Korea. we also have maybe 20 or 25 surviving family members of our brothers as well, going as far back as WW1. We don’t just focus on Korea, but the heritage and history of our old unit as a whole. But you never know you might stumble across some old pictures as we have many. Or some other family member may have a relative in some of your photos. Anyway you and any other family member of Donald are welcome to join us. I can be reached at 919-518-5827 if you would like t chat. Take care Gary
