This page has a lot of photos on it. Most of the photos were donated by former members of the 40th Inf Div that served in Korea during the war. Other photos were donated by the families and or relatives of deceased former members of the 40th Inf Div. At the top of each photo I have put the name of the person who donated the photo. At the bottom of each photo I tried to put a location. If you see one that does not have any information and you know where it is please image with the location. Also contact me if you have any photos that you would like to have on the site.
