PFC Melvin R. Ward
Repost: PFC Ward was a member of the 2-14th during the Korean War. He was originally from California, born in 1931, and had been in the Army for 21 months. He was serving as a member of a Light Weapons Assault Team and possible served at the Team Leader.
On the 26th of June, 1953 he was killed in action while fighting enemy forces in South Korea. He was listed as KIA/MIA and his remains were not recovered. On that date during the war, 21 other American Soldiers and Marines were killed.
I was unable to find any pictures of PFC Ward, but that does not mean we have forgotten his service and his sacrifice to our country, the Army, and our brothers in arms.
May he forever rest at The Right of the Line.
I've been doing these small memorials for some time now both on Facebook and on my previous site. The purpose is to not only remember our fallen brothers from the 14th Infantry Regiment, but to show the families that we will always care and never forget.
