Comments: I am a retired police officer who is becoming a high school history teacher. I am working on a masters thesis for college and would appreciate any personal stories of your time in korea from 48-53. My paper is titled, Korea;The price we paid for freedom. Not to try and say the rest of our hero veterans are not great americans, but I must focus on one particular area, and as a tribute to my father I have chosen the times he served in Korea. He passed away in 1994, before I ever had the chance to question him. He served in a medical group of 187rct. Please relate your memories, good or bad, in your own words. I will use your name only if you wish, and I will not change the meaning of what you say. This is a chance for you to tell your side of the story, and to teach the young men and women of today,the sacrifices Americans made in order for them to have their freedoms today. So much has been written about other wars and conflict, that the "forgotten war" is only a small notation in the course of teaching history. Not only do I want to record reflections for future generations, I want to learn why my father never talked to me about his memories. Please be personal and feel free to omit your name. If you are willing to share your stories, please attach an email address where I can contact you for follow up questions. Thank you and all of our soldiers, sailors, marines, and airman for giving me my freedom today. Thank you very much, and may God bless you and keep you safe.
Sincerely, Jerry Bowman

MY DAD -- M/SGT JOHN NEMETH

Comments: I ran across the koreanwar.org site. It all sounds very familair. My Dad was then M/SGT John Nemeth. We lived at Camp Wood after the Korean War (Silver Star) in '54-'55. He was also in WWII with the 76th ID, 3rd Army (2 Bronze stars), then, believe it or not, at the age of 58 was in the 173rd Airborne Brigade at Bong Song, where he earned his third CIB-3 wars (one of 203 such soldiers in US Army history) and third Purple Heart. In '52 he was in Co. C 511th, 11th ABD at Ft. Campbell, with a chance to go to Germany, my Dad opted to go to Korea and the 187th. Just about caused a divorce. We rotated back to Bragg from Japan, and graduated from Fayetteville Senior HS ('60) there eventually with a stint in Augsburg, Germany (12-56 to-2-59) in between.

Our Dads are heroes of the first order.

Comments: Eddie's family is trying to locate on a map his last battle on 28 Mar 51. We believe his unit parachuted into a heavily defended Chinnese area and that he died from an enemy machine gunner's straffing near Sariwon, Songna-ri, or Songoa-ri (we're not sure). Uncle Eddie was a WWII vet, tough, a fanatic about small arms usefulness, and enjoyed a stiff drink. He was assigned to Company F, 187 Regimental Combat Team. If you knew SFC Eddie Kennedy or of him, please send me a e-mail. but right now we're just trying find out more about these places in North Korea (we think): Sariwon, Songna-ri, or Songoa-ri.

Comments: I left a message for friends of my Dad's to contact me if the wish; Sgt. Howard I. Cram of the 187th Regimental Combat Team. He has been deceased for a long time now...since 1975, and I would be interested in hearing about what kind of soldier he was. I'm currently researching my Dad's side of the family and being a soldier seems to be in the blood! His father, Chester, was in WW1, in France....and my Great-Great Grandfather fought in the Civil War out of Indiana for the 151st Infantry. And as it goes, I married an Airborne, Infantryman (LRS). Well, again, I appreciate the chance to tell all you men and women thank you for your courage and sacrifice so that my children and I can savor such liberities. God Bless you and your families. And Happy New Year 2004

Comments: My Dad passed away in 1975, when I was only 8. And I have his silk banner of the 187th making their jump into the sky, with their parachutes in full plume....a plane, a dragon I believe, silver jumpwings. It's stored away in a safe place along with one of his uniform jackets.

It's not a war to be romanticized, I know. These are just things I keep of my Dad's......and my husband is also a soldier serving today; having come home once already from Baghdad and on his way back again in the next 1-3 months. So, all of you who sacrifice for our liberities and others' rights to them are close to my heart.

I am seeking anyone who may have known my Dad, Sgt. Howard I. Cram, from Williamsburg, Michigan. If you knew him as a soldier or as a friend, I would be grateful to hear what you have to say.....even if you thought he was an SOB, which he often was at home. God rest his soul as I'm sure he's sought it and been forgiven. Apparently my Dad left a lot of his soul in Korea and I feel terribly for him for that.....I know that I canNOT even imagine NOR do I want to try to imagine what it must have been like for all of you men and women. God Bless You and Your Loved Ones.

Please email me if you happen to be the friend that called my Dad most holidays; I know it was at Christmas....and your last Christmas call was so unfortunate that time in 1975, I'm very sorry for your loss.

Thank you for the opportunity to try to find a connection and to give my thanks to our Nation's protectors....and Time Magazine's Person of the Year....The American Soldier. God Bless America!

Would love to hear from any buddies he had or copies of pictures that might include my Dad. We have some picts and my brother inheritted his decorations but we do not know much of that part of his past.

He told me very little of his experiences in Korea. I have his separation papers but they don't tell me much of where he was while in Korea. He was at Ft. Benning,1948, 5 weeks, then Ft. Monmouth for 8 weeks, 1948. He was wounded in Korea, Dec 8th 1950 and sent to 121st Evac. I think he was returned to combat duty after that because he wasn't sent home until Nov, 1951. After one medal listed as Combat Infantry Badge Par it reads 1 SO 213 HQS 187th Air. Does that mean anything to anyone? Is there a website or can I contact someone that could help me find out where my husband served. Thank you and God Bless all who have served their country.

Comments: My uncle Robert E Seelbach was a member of the 187 airbourne unit in Korea. He never came home to the family the same. He was 100% disabled, I thought of him as a POW in his own mind. My father, Richard Seelbach, his twin brother, and myself was his Guardian the last 10 years.I first met my uncle when I was about 12 years old. My father and I used to go and visit him in the Hospital once a month. He enjoyed going to McDonalds with us. My father was in the army during Korea. I was in the Airforce from 1983 till 1992. He passed away in December of 2002. When his estate was settled the family wanted to place a memorial in memory of him and all the airbourne units in the Korean War. We have been tuned down by several organizations and locations. Please help us in are effort to pay tribute to the airborne units of the Korean War. Thank You.
