MP's at Koje-do

I am the company commander for the 142nd MP Company in Seoul, Korea.  I've been trying to locate any photos of MPs that were on Koje-do Island; the 142nd MP Company was on Koje-do, but I am looking for scanned photos of any MPs in any unit in the camp.  Any photos I receive will also be forwarded to both the MP Museum and MP Historian at Ft. Leonard Wood.

Contact: CPT Michael A. Gillispie, Commander, 142nd MP Co., US Army Garrison-Yongsan Provost Marshal.  E-mail michael.gillispie@us.army.mil.

6th MP Service Company

My father is looking for old buddies.  He is from New Jersey and is driving all the way to Oregon to visit one of his best buddies from the war whom he hasn't seen since the war ended.  They are hoping, in time, to find a couple others of their group.  They were members of the 8137th AU (6th MP Service Company).

My father's name is Nicholas (Len) Smith, and the buddy he is visiting is Norman Skarda.

They are looking for Fred Neiter (from South Bend, Indiana) and a couple of others.  He doesn't remember some of the other names.  One he is really interested in is John Turzeka, but he is not sure how to spell the name.  I believe they were stationed together at UN POW Camp No. 6 near Nomsan.  If you could post the information I would greatly appreciate it.  His wife, my mother, just passed away and he now wants to travel the country looking for old buddies.

8137 AU MP Group

I am looking for anyone who served with me in the 8137 AU MP Group in Koje-do, Korea, during January 1952 to December 1952.  It has been so many years, I have forgotten names.  One name I recall is Dave Edwards from Pennsylvania. Another was Vasquez from Texas or New Mexico.  It was a small outfit.
