We know there is more to what we know, which is practically nothing. Tom would not talk about all his heroic efforts in Korea. We hope there are people out there that might have info to share with us. I am doing this on behalf of his wife and children. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank You!!

Comments: I was writing this message for my grandfather, William (Bill)W. Goodwin who passed away April 22, 2009 from cancer. He was wounded on Nov.17th. 1950 in Korea and spent ten years in the Army. Although he didn't talk about it much, he was a very humble man and raised our family the best way he could. We never went without. He was loved by us very much and will be dearly missed. His scarifices along with the others who paid the highest cost for our freedoms will never be forgotten by me. I'm dedicating my service in Iraq to his honor when I leave in March 2010. God Bless all who have served and are going to serve. Freedom is not free!

Comments: Looking for anyone that served with CPL James Hensley. a Squad Leader with Company F, 17th Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division, on December 19, 1950, near Hungnam, Korea. Need eye witness statements of his Distingusihed Service Cross Action. Need to also verify that CPL James Hensley was from Clay County, Kentucky. Lived in Titusville, Florida until he passed away in 2000.


Corporal Hensley, James Army
Distinguished Service Cross

Corporal James Hensley
U.S. Army

Co. F, 17th Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division
Date of Action: December 19, 1950

Citation:
The Distinguished Service Cross is awarded to Corporal James Hensley, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in action while serving as a squad leader with Company F, 17th Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division, on December 19, 1950, near Hungnam, Korea. Elements of his company were deployed in a series of strongpoints approximately nine hundred yards apart defending the perimeter around the Port of Hungnam. Corporal Hensley observed a large hostile force approaching his position through a pass at approximately 0300 hours. Awakening and alerting the members of his squad, and instilling confidence that they could contain the attack, Corporal Hensley waited until the enemy had advanced within thirty yards and, manning a machine-gun, delivered point-blank fire into their ranks, inflicting many casualties. Although subjected to intense small-arms, automatic-weapons, and recoilless rifle fire and knowing the strongpoints on both sides had been overrun, Corporal Hensley refused to abandon his vantage point. On several occasions, hostile troops succeeded in crawling nearby and hurled grenades at his position, one of which grazed his hand, but undaunted, he remained steadfast and exacted a heavy toll of casualties throughout each assault. After nearly an hour of bitter resistance, during which he turned his weapon around twice to deliver destructive fire on enemy groups who had infiltrated on both flanks, Corporal Hensleys machine-gun became defective and failed to fire automatically. Applying instant action, he continued to fire single rounds manually until the weapon become inoperative. With his machine-gun out of action and a dwindling supply of carbine ammunition, he ordered a withdrawal and, struggling with his heavy weapon to deny its possible use to the attacking enemy, he fearlessly led his squad up the ridge line toward the last known position of the strongpoint on his left flank, stopping twice to fight his way through pockets of infiltrating enemy. Corporal Hensleys valorous conduct and intrepid actions resulted in numerous hostile wounded and, after the position was retaken later in the morning, approximately forty enemy dead were found in the wake of his field of fire.

Comments: Hello, I'm seeking to contact any 17th Infantry Regiment Veterans who may have known Pvt. Perley L. Burdick, # ER22810252, from Washington County, Rhode Island, and recalls which Company of the 17th he was assigned to. He was twice WIA while serving with the 17th Infantry, once on Feb. 27, 1951, and again on August 31, 1951. If anyone can recall Pvt. Burdick, or perhaps provide me with an idea of where the 17th Inf. was on the above mentioned dates, and what their mission was, I would be most appreciative. I am especially interested in determining which Company of the 17th he was assigned to, for without his Co. assignment, it's very difficult to pinpoint his actual position(s) when he was wounded. If anyone has ANY information pertaining to the above,I will be MOST DEEPLY APPRECIATIVE if they would contact me at: dpast32@aol.com THANK YOU

Regards, Dom Pastore Jr.

Comments: I am looking for anyone who knew my Dad. His name was Earl Pugsley. He was a corporal in the US Army in Korea. He and his unit got a write-up in Stars and Stripes for breaking up a "red ambush north of Yong Wol". He was 21 years old when he came home from Korea. He was from Fresno, CA. He was in the Korean War in 1951 (probably, we don't have exact dates). Thanks for any responses, and especially, pictures you're willing to share.
