728th MPs Plan Fete For 260 Korean Kids

WITH EIGHTH ARMY- Plans are being laid by the 728th Military Police Battalion, to bring Christmas cheer and spirit to some 200 Korean orphan children in three orphanages in their area come Dec. 25.

This MP unit, commanded by Lt. Col. Alonso E. Wood, of Lynchburg, Va., is going all out to make Christmas an enjoyable time for the children of the Al Kwhang and Boo Ik orphanages in Inchon, and the Suwon Free orphanage garden in Suwan.

The officers and enlisted men of the battalion have set up donation boxes in all companies. The money will be used to buy gifts on the Korean market. Individual gifts will be wrapped, using the holiday wrappings from boxes and packages received from the States and delivered to the three orphanages on Christmas day.
