Korean War - Andrew Carriero

Dear Sir,

My name is Jessica Pesce and I am emailing you to try and get some information about the wolf hound pack. My grandfather recently passed away in February, and I have been trying to put together his history from the war so we can honor him. From the bits he told me when he was alive, he said how he was part of the wolf hound pack, on the front lines and was a sergeant. My grandfather's name was Andrew J. Carriero. He served in the army. If you could give me any information, my family and I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time and your service.

First, thank you for your inquiry regarding your Grandfather. However, in order to be of any assistance we would need to know the Battalion, Company and when your Grandfather served with the 27th Infantry Regiment (The Wolfhounds). Depending on when he served there is no guarantee.

We do see if anyone remembers those who served during the same era or if anyone has any pictures or documents which would be helpful.

I did find his obituary online and noticed he served in Korea. Even with that I still need a little more information if you have it. In the meantime, you might also want to check with the Korean War Project:

If I/we can be of further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Hello Mr. Smith,

Thank you so much for contacting me. I want to honor him in any way I can, and I know that he always felt like the military was a part of his life that was forgotten by many. His most significant duty assignment was 1745 Company Alpha 27th Infantry Regiment based in Korea during the Korean War. I can't seem to find his Battalion on his paperwork. He served from June 27, 1952 to June 25, 1954. He entered the military in New Haven CT and separated at Camp Kilmer, New Jersey. I do have some pictures that my grandfather kept from when he served. I can attach them for you as well. He was a Sergeant, his component and branch/class was RA INF. If there is anything else I can get for you, please let me know. This means the absolute world to me.

Thank you so much for your time.
