THIS ARTICLE MIGHT GIVE YOU A CLUE ...THE PARAGRAPH I QUOTE SOUNDS LIKE YOUR GRANDFATHER...I AM NOT SAYING IT IS HIM, BUT THE AUTHOR OF THIS INFO MAY BE ABLE TO HELP YOU...HE HAS MET WITH MANY VETERANS...

IN PART READS....

"I was thinking what happened here, right here on this mountain, in the bitter fall of 1951, during the Korean War. A young Marine Corsair pilot, of Chicago, was hit by friendly fire over Heartbreak Ridge on October 7, 1951. His aircraft exploded, a wing came off, a parachute opened."

THIS IS A GREAT SITE
MY FATHER WAS A MARINE IN KOREA AND WAS WIA AND THAT IS HOW I CAME TO KNOW ABOUT THIS SITE...


SINCERELY,

CONSTANCE REED PECK
DAUGHTER OF MARINE CORP. CLAUDE CONRAD REED,JR. 1930-1974
