Looking for info about Loren Steele, Kansas

My name is Matt Tener, and I'm looking for anyone who knew my wife's grandfather Loren Steele from Wichita, Ks. I know he was in the Marine's in Korea. I've tried numerous times to find out more about his experience, but he will not talk about it to this day. The only time he ever confided in me, was in telling a story about needing an emergency appendectomy at Camp Pendleton. I have no idea who he served with and where specifically.

I am finding out more and more about what the conditions were like in Korea, and my respect for Korean War veterans grows. I know that those soldiers came home to indifference, when they should have had a hero's welcome. I am proud to know at least one Korean veteran, and I hope one day, he can get those demons out of his past and into the light. I know what those soldiers went through was beyond belief but I, along with many others, appreciate it.

Thank you to all those that have served in the defense of this great nation and in the defense of democracy.
Matt Tener
