I ran across a very interesting book, The Conflict Korea 1953, Last Stand for Pork Chop Hill by Ruben J. Rodriguez. In his memoir, Mr. Rodriguez tells the story of his Army service in the 7th Infantry Division, 32nd Infantry Regiment in Korea and includes many photos and lists of fellow soldiers.

One of these soldiers was Sargeant First Class Jésus A. (Pancho) Palomo of La Fundicion de Ávalos.

Mr. Rodriguez details stories about Sargeant Palomo’s promotion and how he was wounded.

If you have a moment, take a look at some of the entries and photos that are available on Google Books about Sargeant Palomo. You may decide to buy the book!

Does anyone know anything about Jésus Palomo? The wounds that he sustained in Korea may be mentioned here.
