      I did not know Norman Conrad, but I did find his body. We had tried to take this hill several times, but we were pushed back, finally we were able to take the hill and as I went up the hill I found the body of Norman Conrad. How I know this... I looked at his dog tags and there was a dead Chinese soldier close-by and I looked thru the pockets of the dead Chinese and found a small brown Bible which most of us carried in combat, in the Bible was his name and the last 4 letters of his serial # printed in blue. I took the Bible and kept it with me with the intention of sending it to Norman's folks, but we continued pushing on different hills and the Bible became lost and I was never able to send it to his folks. I can remember feeling bad about it. I personally did not know Norman Conrad, but I believe he was a rifleman in K Co., 7 Cav. Reg. He died honorably. Carl Meyers
