Post ATTN: Korea war vets

I'm looking for veterans who served in Korea along side my grandfathers, William "Bill" Russ and Lloyd Rhodes. I'm not sure what kind of identifying numbers would be helpful to have. All I know is neither of them saw any combat, but both were in the army- I believe they were doing reconstruction? I'm starting to research my family records, but I don't know what to look for.
Thanks, Nathan

Re: ATTN: Korea war vets

As next of kin, you would have to contact the National Archives and Records Administration to get more information. Day, month and year of birth to start, and if you know it, where they were assigned.

The name of their Battalion or Division would also be good to know since there are various online sites that post some information on them. For example, 366th Engineer Aviation Battalion.

Construction and rebuilding and a lot of behind the lines, non-combat work involved a lot of service personnel.
