County Seeking Info On Korean War Veterans

County Seeking Info On Korean War Veterans

KOREA/Potter County Department of Veterans Affairs continues to make arrangements for a ceremony to honor the county’s veterans of the Korean War later this year. Director of Veterans Affairs Will Worthington is compiling a roster of Korean War veterans from Potter County, as well as survivors of deceased Korean War veterans, to include in future notifications about the ceremony. He can be reached by email at wworthington@pottercountypa.net, or by phone at 814-274-8290, Ext. 210.

Organizers will hold a dinner, along with a program and ceremony, sometime in July. Details will be announced. A highlight will be a memorial service for the Potter County men who lost their lives in the Korean War. Worthington has created a roster of these casualties and is asking family members and friends to assist in creating a fitting memorial. Photographs, biographical information and other notes about these eight men are especially welcome, the director said. So far, using military records, he has compiled the following list:
  • Army PFC George G. Lattin, died Oct. 16, 1952
  • Marines 1st Lt. John B. Goery, Dec. 27, 1952
  • Army Cpl. Paul M. Brown, March 2, 1951
  • Army Pvt. Edward W. Duston, Sept. 6, 1950
  • Army Sgt. Lewis A. Guilds, Nov. 2, 1950
  • Army Pvt. Fred J. Van Why, Feb. 8, 1951
  • Army Pvt. Robert I. Roberts, May 28, 1951
  • Army Sgt. Donald T. Johnson, July 11, 1952
“Historians have referred to the Korean War as ‘the forgotten war,’ due to a number of factors,” Worthington said. “This ceremony is an effort to pay a long-overdue tribute to a special group of veterans.”
