Comments: My mother, Etta Rose Tauscher, was at the 121 Evac Hospital as a Staff Nurse from June, 1959 to April, 1960. After she passed
away in 1990, I find I have many questions about her time in the Army
Nursing Core. If anyone knew her or of her, I would greatly appreciate
any information or anecdotes offered.

KOREAN SEEKING DR. CRAWFORD OF 121ST EVAC HOSPITAL

KALANI O'SULLIVAN wrote on July 14, 2002


City and State:

Unit:

Service or Relationship: -

Comments: My name is Kalani O'Sullivan and I'm writing this on behalf of Mr. Pyong-Hyan Choe (Johnny Choe) of the 8th SPS at Kunsan AB. Though this is not a Korean War incident, we hope that someone from the 121st Evac Hospital of 1961 may stop by and see this article and help us in our search.

He is searching for a Dr. Crawford (first name unknown), 121 Evac Hospital, Pupyong, March 61.

At that time Johnny was a "street kid" living a rough life after he left the orphanage in 1960. He also spoke "street English" and was able to communicate with the Americans. In 1960, he was
outside the Kunsan Main Gate when he noticed a blind kid -- about 5 years older than himself -- was being pushed away repeated by the ROK guards in his attempts to enter the base.

He went up to offer his help and found out that the kid had learned that an operation done free by the US Army that could return his sight. However, he must first receive a letter of recommendation from the nearest US military base. He had traveled a long way from Chongnu only to be rebuffed at the gate. Johnny the street-wise kid took him around to the North
Gate and snuck under the fence (barbed wire strands at that time). He took him to see the Base Chaplain and pleaded Noh Chin-Woo's case and received a letter from the Chaplain and
Base Hospital. However, because of the non-availability of eyes for transplants, there was a long waiting period.

According to Mr. Choe, he offered one of his eyes and this act came to the attention of Dr. Crawford. He was stunned by this act of generosity and took action up the channels to make this a special case. Johnny didn't have to lose his eyesight as other "eye material" was used. On March 1961, Johnny was there
when the bandages were removed from Mr. Noh's eyes and Johnny translated that he could see the 16 flourescent lights through the welder's glasses. The Doctor was overjoyed. Later Johnny
accompanied Mr. Noh returned to his village and everyone was stunned to see the blind-boy now sighted. A celebration was immediately held for the miracle.

Mr. Noh is now 65 years old and lives in Chungno while Mr. Choe is 60 years old and resides in Kunsan City.

After all these years, Johnny would like to thank Dr. Crawford for his kindness and
humanity.

Hi Ernie, thanks for responding. In 63 when the war was over, the Korean kids were still picking up mines for scrap metal and we had several admitted to the 121. I recall going with our neuro surgeon who volunteerd at a Korean hosp. and was amazed to see on the TB unit that patients were sleeping 2 patients to a cot and they were using an old surgical light from the war and doing surgery on 2 patients at one time in the OR. Memories~~~I have so many. I have lost touch with all the people I knew while I was in Korea. One of my jobs as a nurse was going on the blood run each week. Two corpsmen and I were taken by chopper to a different outfit each week to get blood for the only blood bank we had in Korea.                                     I am sure your memories are not as pleasant as most of mine were. (not all were pleasant). If you have any memories you wish to share, please feel free.

Comments: I was a patient Nov and Dec 1953 with Hemmoragic Fever. Most of the men who had it died there. I was one of the lucky ones. I could only eat 1 slice of toast and 1 cup of pear juice each meal.

Lost from 165 lbs to 125 lbs. When Thanksgiving came, I was served a full Turky Dinner. The staff knew I couldn't eat it. I laid there and cried because I knew the Army cared, and I was very thankful.

One night in December I did not have the usual high fever and the staff was elated. they said I was going to live. Later, I was flown to the hospital Tachakawa in Japan to gain weight.

By the first of February I was back at West Virginia University to resume my Sophomore year. I should have taken a semester off because I was still very weak. But I made it through and even went to summer school.

Comments: I was stationed with the 121st evac unit from july 1950 to sept 1951. I would be interested in corresponding with anyone, or sharing info from that time period. At that time, we were located in Pusan. From the email notes, it looks as if this unit moved to other loactions after I returned to the states.

Comments: I spent a brief time - a week as I recall, in the 121st in the early spring of 1953, then returned to the line. I would like to know just where the 121st was located in the city. I thought it was Seoul, but now Yongdongpo pops up.
Please write me at my email address

Anyone else out there in country at that time from the 121st Evac? My kids have been asking and found this site. Looking forward to hearing from anyone!
