Welcome to the Korean War Educator Buddy Search.
The Buddy Search pages were created to help Korean War veterans reunite with their lost buddies. It is
also a finding source for those seeking witnesses for VA claims and those wanting unit and other miscellaneous
information. The KWE often receives a variety of requests from family members of deceased veterans. All
searches are grouped in the appropriate category to facilitate searches.
If you are searching for a buddy you served with during the Korean War, you are invited to post a notice on
the Korean War Educator’s Buddy Search page. We are aware that many Korean War veterans only knew a buddy by a
name or nickname, but please try to include as much information as you possibly can about your lost buddy,
including: full name, nick name, city and state of origin, unit and dates in Korea, etc. If you want to post a
picture of your lost buddy, you are welcome to do so. Also be sure to post your contact information. You
are encouraged to include contact information other than an e-mail address because e-mail addresses often
change. If you do not want to post your address and phone number on the site, we suggest that you at least
provide it to Lynnita with a request that she not share it without your approval. She will honor your

Also note that a number of requests to locate a lost buddy do not make it to this page of the KWE.
Instead, visitors post them within their KWE Guest Book entries. These requests do not automatically go to
Buddy Search. They usually remain buried in the KWE Guest Book unless those visitors specifically send a
Buddy Search request to Lynnita.
Just a reminder: If you don't see your request on the Buddy Search pages, we encourage
you to write to Lynnita for a repost. She might have had computer problems at the time you sent your
request in, or perhaps she inadvertently overlooked it--something she tries very hard not to do, but could very
well have done.
