New Mexico, San Juan
Died 8-11-50
MIA, Declared Dead


   Update 2013:

Here is some news of interest to the 15th Field Artillery Association and website:

 The remains of Sgt. Joseph D. Steinberg, C Battery, 15th FA BN, 2nd ID were recently identified and will be interred near his home town of San Francisco, CA sometime this summer, 2013.  Sgt. Steinberg was captured during the Battle of Hoengsoeng on Feb. 13, 1951 and declared dead on April 1 of that same year.  His remains were identified by the DPMO on May 30, 2013.  The DPMO announcement can be seen here:  http://www.dtic.mil/dpmo/accounted_for/

 The remains of PFC James R. Hare, B Battery, also lost on Feb. 13, 1951 have also been recovered and were identified on Jan. 19, 2013.  Other members of 15th FA BN whose remains have been recently identified are Cpl. Eugene Morelli, PFC George Porter, 1st LT Jack Saunders.

 Sgt. Steinberg was the best friend of my father, Sgt. Joseph Garrett (also C Battery, 15th FA BN) at Ft. Lewis before the Korean War and during the summer and winter of 1950-1951.  My mother was roommates with Sgt. Steinberg’s fiancée and my father met her when he and Sgt. Steinberg had to quickly store their personal belongings and Sgt. Steinberg’s car at the fiancée’s apartment immediately before shipping out on the USS Buckner from the Port of Tacoma in late July, 1950.
