Comments: I am mixing apples and oranges as I write this, as you see, in addition to being in the Korean war I was also in the viet Nam war, the later being the First Air cav. Div. Names and places are kind of scrambled for this 72 ywar old Vet, but I have a few photograph's, memories and remember some of the names of some the guys I served with: Pete Juliano, Wilson (BAR) Getz (3.5 inch. Rocket Launcher), Beachard, Redmond and Sunday. One of my Platoon Leaders was Lt. DeJesus, My last CO was CPT Momen (Big Mo) before I shipped States side. Would appreciate hearing from any one.

Comments: I'm looking for anyone who served with my grandfather, Pvt Clarence G. Kippes, during the Korean War. He was a member of the 21st Infantry Regiment, 24th Infantry Division. He was wounded 22 May 1951 and subsequently sent home about a month later. He lost part of his leg as a result of the injury. He has since died, but due to recent events related to my job, I'd like to find out more. If anyone has any information about him, please email me at newzjunkie24@yahoo.com. Thank you for your help and service to our country.

A family member of mine, I am looking for any information at all about him in order to help honor him and also to regain some lost information about our family. This event was apparently so devastating to some of the family members that they rarely mentioned it, and now I would like to pass on this important piece of history to my children. Walter deserves to be remembered.

I'd be interested in anything - at this time, I do not even know what battalion or other unit he was assigned to.

Comments: A KOREAN CHRISTMAS
T'was the night before Christmas, and all thru the tent, was the odor of fuel oil (the stovepipe was bent)
The shoe paks were hung by the oil stove with care,
In the hope that they'd issue each man a new pair.
The weary GI's were sacked-out in their beds and visions of sugar-babes danced through their heads.
When up on the ridge-line there rose such a clatter,((a chinese machine gun had started to chatter)
I rushed to my rifle and threw back the bolt, the rest of my tent-mates awoke with a jolt. Outside we could
hear our Platoon Sgt Kelly, a hard little man with a little pot belly. "Come Baker, Come Zimm, come Conners
and Watson. Up Miller, Up Carson, Up Williams and Dodson. We stumbled outside in a swirl of confusion, So
cold that each man could have used a transfusion.
"Get up on that hill-top and silence that Red. And don't come back 'til your sure that he's dead" !! Then, putting his thumb up in front of his nose, Sgt Kelly took leave of us shivering Joes. But we all heard him say in a voice soft and light. Merry Christmas to all, May you live thru the night !!!

Comments: Happy Memorial Day to all of the veterans of the 24th Division, who served in Korea. This is a day that all Americans should be proud to celebrate. This is a day that brings good memories of my father, Jack E. Ritchey who served in Korea. It is in his and Stan Verrets honor that I send this to the Korean War Site.


Thanks

Randy Jack Ritchey
