Sgt Joe Sheehan was drafted into the Army on his 20th birthday. After training at Fort Ord, Ca., he was flown to Japan - boarded a troop ship in Yokohama, bound for Inchon.

Arrived at the 1st Bn., late summer of 52, while the Bn. was camped along the river at Kapyong. He was assigned to Charley Company, 1st Battalion, 223rd Inf Regt, and later on was transfered to Hq Company. He remained with the 1st Bn, until after the truce, and then shipped home. Discharged - Fort Lewis, Wa. - Dec. 53.

If anyone has any photos that they feel would be of interest to Korean War Veterans that are willing to place on this site please image and I will be glad to put them on this site.
