    • 19 June 1951 The Tonawanda News,
      N. T. GI Dies On Front Line of Korean War
      A North Tonawanda veteran with four years of service in World War II became the fourth man from the Twin Cities killed in action in the Korean conflict. He is Pfc. Kenneth H. Glawf, 34, husband of Mrs. Shirley Glawf of 311 Bryant St. and son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Glawf of 1711 Ruie Rd. A Department of Defense telegram received by his wife June 14 reported his death on June 3 while serving with the 27th Infantry, Wolfhound Regiment, in Korea. The telegram gave no details. Pfc. Glawf earned a sergeant's rating in his combat infantry service in World War II. He held the combat infantryman's badge or 21-months of overseas duty and the European Theater ribbon with three stars. He was sent to Korea in March. His latest letters home described the fierceness of the fighting. He wrote … "things are rough … the smell is terrible because of the many bodies of dead Communist soldiers unburied … they attack with disregard of weapons and often try to overcome us in hand-to-hand combat without rifles." Pfc. Glawf was formerly employed by the Rudolph Wurlitzer Company and was a member of St. Peter's Evangelical & Reformed Church.
