The Last Full Measure - Roster of Casualties

All gave some ... some gave all.

Nearly one hundred men from the 13th were lost or killed in the Korean War. We honor those who gave all for the cause of freedom. Let us never forget!

(We would very much like to include images of all the men listed below. If you have a picture of one of the following that we don't have a photo for, please contact us. If you don't have access to a scanner, we will be more than happy to scan and return your photo or slide.)

October 20, 2001

We have been contacted by Ray Sestak, who has asked for assistance in locating next of kin for certain 13th MIAs.

"I represent a small group of veterans that are actively pursuing contact with family or friends of Korean War-era MIAs that have no next of kin noted in their official records. Once contact with next of kin is established, we work directly with personnel within the USAF DPMO to ensure that contact is in fact made to that Office, and is then confirmed back to us by the DPMO. Only then does our research stop. The names highlighted in grey below represent the MIAs we are currently researching within the 13th BS. If you knew any of these men, I would appreciate hearing from you. I can be contacted via e-mail at raysestak@att.net. Thank you very much for your consideration. - Ray Sestak"

(Webmaster's note: We've added the residence of record for these individuals.)
