We have been searching for over 40 years for a, Minus L. Fletcher 1st Lt. Fa. 7787 Air liaison Detachment HQ Command European Command APO US Army 757 APO 403, 23 April 1948.

John M. Murphy Captain, Fa Commanding. 7787 Air Liaison Detachment Headquarters Command European Command APO - 757 APO 403US Army  23 April 1948 .

Howard B. Richardson 1st Lt. Inf   7787 Air liaison Det. HQ  - Command European Command APO 757 US Army and APO - 403 Heidelberg Germany 23 April 1948 

Herbert W. Ogilvy 1st Lt. Cav.  7787 Air Liaison Det. HQ - Command European Command APO 757 , and APO 403 US - Army Heidelberg 23 April 1948

All very good and close friends of ours, We were also a member of  this same unit during that time and Until end of  Jan 1951. The only information we have been able to find was just one of the above, shown here below and from that Information we can not be sure that we even have this one correctly Identified.

We can not understand, why it is so hard for friends that served together In WWII to able to find each other again after the War. We know that there is a Privacy law in effect, but the results of our diligent efforts for so many years, makes this government law ridiculous. Can you help or set us on the right path, to finally find these friends before they all depart to a better place, where ridiculous man's  laws are removed.
