    Seeking Joseph Logan stationed at Fort Riley, KS


      I am seeking any military information or otherwise about Joseph Logan who was stationed in Fort Riley Kansas in 1959. Little is known about him except the following: He was born about 1938-1939; He is African-American; and He came from Chicago but don't know if that is his birthplace. I

      don't know exactly how long he was at Fort Riley but he was there at least from October to December 1959. He shipped out probably in very early 1960. I'm seeking this information for a friend of mine; Joseph Logan is her biological father. She was born in late July 1960 in Topeka, Kansas and doesn't know if he is/ was aware she even exists. Thank you for your help.
