A couple of years ago, I bought for 50p a copy of the book, This Kind of War by T R Fehrenbach. To my surprise, inside was a handwritten inscription to Bill from Lou C Menetrey. Being nosey, I decided to find out more about Menetrey and thus reveal the identity of the mysterious Bill. Was he a senior officer, administrator? Anyway, here is the inscription: Undated letter to Bill inside a copy of the book, This Kind of War, by T H FehrenBach. Bill Your heroism and personal sacrifices have permitted South Koreans to enjoy the freedom and security that they enjoy today and assured that the US maintains its military presence in the strategically critical region of the world. I thought you might enjoy reading this account of that very important war. Best regards Lou Menetrey Commander in Chief US FORCES KOREA He has a distinguished service record and is buried in your Arlington cemetery. Married twice and numerous offspring. I have tried to access US Army records, and his widow, Jane, who lives in Florida. No luck so far. Of course, I may have embarked on a mission impossible as all the characters are now dead. Thought you may have some ideas? RIP General Louis C Menterey.
