Richard B. Parker
Commanded the first platoon
Anti-Tank Company of the 422 Infantry Regiment
106th Infantry Division

Dick Parker was a Lt in the 422nd, either Anti-tank or Cannon Company, probably AT. Therefore, he might not show up in one of the CIB lists.

Like me, he joined Foreign Service after the war, became one of our
leading Arabic-language officers (unlike me), and served as Ambassador in a couple of Arabic countries (also unlike me). He lives in DC. but has serious health problems. He worked for years after retirement from Foreign Service in one of the Near East think tanks in DC, but can't venture out to mini-reunions on his own any more.
