Coskey, John Herbert
Captured July 11, 1950, Choch'iwon, South Korea, (See Appleton, South to the Naktong, North to the Yalu, Page 96).
Tiger Survivor, Died November 12, 1950, Chong’Gang-Jin, North Korea, (Johnnie’s List).
Photos are of John Coskey with the 1st Cavalry Division at Camp McGill, Japan during the early months of 1950. [Apparently, John was one of those quickly transferred from the 1st Cav to the 24th Infantry Division at the outset of the Korean War. This was indicated in Appleman cited above.]
John’s sister, Jacqueline F Hyman, would very much like to speak with anyone from the 21st Infantry Regiment who might have known John, or who was with K Company, 21st Infantry Regiment on July 11, 1950, or anyone from the Tiger Death March whether they knew John or not, or from Chong’Gang-Jin, North Korea.
