Pacific Stars and Stripes, September 23,
With U.S. 3d Div-Discovery of
a stranded two-year old, orphaned Korean child and the subsequent care
tendered the infant gave the battle hardened men of Company D, 15th
Regiment, a brief relief from the duties of war.
Later when the child was well enough to be moved
he was sent to an orphanage but not before the men had time to think
of the necessity of the orphanages in Korea.
When a plea was put out for orphanage, Company D,
came through with flying colors contributing $2240. Funds from the whole
15th Regiment amounted to $7818.30
