    Would the Army have a database of pictures that could be searched or requested if given the information for a certain person? I am looking for anything of my grandpa during his time in the Army. He served during the Korean war.

    My grandpa passed away and I have his burial flag and tags. One thing I have always wanted is a picture of my grandfather during his time in the Army. Every picture from when he was overseas was taken by him of all his buddies. My grandma could never find any of him.

    Thank you for any help or direction.

    Sorry, I can't say for certain, but I don't believe what you are looking for is possible. You would have to be very lucky to see any photos that someone may have posted on a website. I don't think the government has any type of searchable database of photos naming the people in them.
    I would love to find pictures of my Dad in WWII, but years of browsing military sites have not done it.

    Thanks for the reply. I figure that would have to be a pretty huge database to keep!
