Comments: Hi,

I am currently a History student at university in the UK and writing my dissertation on medical advancements in the Korean War. I am particularly interested in MASH units and Military Medical Evacuation and would be grateful for any information in any of these areas or even pointers in the right direction. Also, if anyone has any experience in these areas and would be willing to answer some questions I would really appreciate it.

Many thanks,
Hannah

Comments: I have been told that my late Great Uncle Viv was one of the original MASH members.
His name was Colonel Vivian Cipriano, son of Santo Cipriano. He took part in the US
Army for WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. I have been told he was one of
the founders, but I can't find any info on him whenever I search MASH. Can anyone
clear this up for me?

Comments: I appreciate the service rendered by all of you in spite the fact that sometimes I don't understand the reasons for all these wars. Some are well justified, and clearly reasonable, but some seem senseless.
Regardless, you men and women always do the best you can for what you believe: our country. Thank you.
Our government officials should be consistent with their retoric and provide uninterrupted services, of all sorts,to all military personnel
to thank you for your sacrifices.

That aside, I have been trying to inquire about military advances of the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
If anyone has any information and or resources I woild be very grateful if you can share them with me at my above e-mail.

MY FATHER; DONALD J. GARVEY, MEDIC

Service or Relationship: FAMILY MEMBER

Comments: Dear Sirs,
First of all I would like to thank all veterans on this day, Veteran’s Day, which all too few of my generation have little understanding. From the time my family emigrated to these United States we have participated in every major conflict to protect the freedoms of Americans and our allies. I served four years in the Navy but did not see any combat. I take my hat off to those who did… not only on November 11th, but every time I see an American flag. Once again, thank you all.
Now, for the other reason I am writing to you all.
My name is Kilian Garvey and I am interested in hearing from anyone who might have known my father, Donald J. Garvey. I don’t know much about my father’s service in Korea, but I do know it was with the 1st Cavalry, that my father was a corporal, and served as a medic with a dentist or oral surgeon, most probably in a forward unit. Someone might remember a dark haired, skinny Irish Catholic kid from Queens, New York who played basketball, golf, and was a student at Niagara University before he was drafted.
My father died just a few months after I was born, but my mother did not talk about either his life or his service much. My mother passed away almost 10 years ago now, so it is too late to ask her now.
I would love to hear from anyone who may have known my pop, please.

Sincerely,
Kilian J. Garvey
