PFC Eddie C Baker
57th Field Art. Batt. (105MM)
7th Inf. Div.
Missing in Action
Service #: RA14341577
Enlistment: Washington County, NC
Battle zone: Chosin Reservoir
Area: Eastern Shore
Battery B, 57th Field Artillery Battalion, 7th Infantry Division.
Listed as Missing in Action near Hagaru, North Korea about December 2, 1950.
Presumed dead on December 31, 1953.
DOD records cite December 6, 1950, as date of loss, but due to the internal chaos within the unit due to high losses, it is impossible without eyewitness confirmation to have a specific date of actual loss. The final breakout of the survivors from East of Chosin occurred on December 1-2, 1950. By December 6, 1950, the able-bodied survivors from the unit were fighting south from the Chosin Reservoir. Confirmation needed of actual date of loss.
His name is inscribed on the Courts of the Missing at the Honolulu Memorial.
