JOHNS I am searching for the family of a soldier who was killed in the Korea War. When he entered service he gave Allendale County, SC as his home of record.  Soldier:Willie Lee Johns, Born; September 27, 1927, Black, Unit: Btry "C", 503 Art Bn, 2nd Inf Division, Date of loss:: December 1, 1950, POW died while captured. When he went into service he gave Allendale County SC as his official home of record.  When the Korean War ended the enemy never returned or accounted for over 8,000 of our servicemen. They died in their hands. That was over 50 years ago. Since that time DNA has been perfected and also they are recovering remains in North Korea. Our government is obligated to return those remains to the proper family. DNA samples have been obtained from most of the families of these missing soldiers. For various reasons some families have not been located. There are 65 families in South Carolina that have not been located. There is one family from Allendale County that have not been located.  When the remains are recovered and identified they will be returned to the family for proper burial. I am just an old (76 years) Combat Veteran out of the Korean War and thankful that I did return. I consider this a very noble cause and I hope that you can help in some way to find this family. For more information on the project you may go to My part in the program is to match up the lost families with the proper agency. I will be grateful for any assistance in locating this family.  August 2006 Harold Davis
