Pfc. Harry P. Simpson USMC 4 1104759 Ward 19. USNH SMR Camp Joseph H. Pendleton '0ceanslde, California Miss Mary L. Beck cle Central High School 3616 Garrison Avenue Str Louis 7, Missouri My dear Miss Beck, In response to your most surprising letter of April ll, I would personally like to assure you that a great error has been made in reporting me killed in action in Korea. My mother forwarded the letter on te me and also told me she had telephoned you to rectify this error. The entire extent of my injuries was frostbitton hands and feet received while serving as a Browning Automatic Rifleman with B Co., 1 st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment which was one of the elements of the lst Marine Division cut off at the Chandgen Reservoir area. Fortunately I was evacuated by air from the town of Hagaru-ri, the first stop in the WBlccdy Retreatn to the sea in which the lst Marine Division did not retreat but merely 'changed the direction of the advance,u as there was more of the Chinese Army in our rear than at our front when the orders to pull out came. I recovered from my injury with no serious effects and was sent back to duty February 25 of this year. While attached to the Military Police Company here at Camp Pendleton awaiting reassignment, I was stricken with an eye infection for which I was again hospital- ized . I expect to recover from this infection also without any serious effects within the next few months and will probably receive limited duty with the Marine Corps. If it is at all possible, I would like very much to obtain a copy of this coming"Red and Blackn which will contain the page dedicated to the other three Central boys reported killed in action in Korea. One of the boys I believe was Donald lichschlag with whom I trained and shipped overseas with in the First Replacement Draft out of Camp Pendleton. I may possibly have been acquainted with the other two boys especially if they were activated with the Third Inf fantry Battalion. Marine Corps Reserve,last July 29. If I may obtain a copy of this yearbook, I wish you would please contact my parents at CHestnut 4831 and they will make the necessary arrangements. I am glad the error of the false report of my death has been all straightened out and I wish to sincerely thank all of the Central High Faculty and especially yon,Miss Beck and Mr. Davis for your concern in the matter. Until I may again visit all of you at Central High School I will remain, Yours Yery Truly Barry P. Simpson Pfc. USMC
