Comments: My father George E. Bean served as a FAC in the Korean War. He passed away in 1975. I found a silver cigarette case of his after my mother's death last year. The case is engraved at the top 25th Infantry Division 1950, at the bottom, Air Section, and center with a map of Korea (north and south) and imposed on map is a wooden barrel marked Pickle Barrel. On the back are names I assume are nicknames or call signs. They are as follows: Wolfhound, Bird Brain, Informable McIntoshi, Drop a Kick Mike, Jazz-Bo Mello, Else Where, Timberlane Fox, Top Coat Able, Gas Kmask Rodger, Fly Train, Sales Price, Ch-Arlie, Play Boy, Nehi, Native Son, Cherry Tree 43, Rat Killer, Uaudville, Contour Charlie, Zebra, Goose Bump, Radiogeam, Cousin, Utah, Baker, Admiration yoke, Mono10que, Easy, and George listed twice.

My father earned 4 DFC's and 19 Air Medals during his combat tour in Korea. Like so many Vets of that time frame he talked about his service very little and while I have his Medals, there are no citations included. Does anyone know who these comrades of my father are? What they did? I read a sign that said Real Heroes don't wear capes, they wear dog tags. I would love to know more about these Heroes.

Comments: Comments: My name is Larry Skaggs, formerly Cpl. Clifford LARRY Skaggs. I'm 81 now, turned 21 in Korea. Lately, my mind goes back more and more to the Korean 'Police Action' experience. Trouble is, my mind goes back, but my memory doesn't. I remember very little of the experience and would like to be in touch with someone I served with. It's a long shot I know, but maybe some old guy I served with, or some old guy's kid or grand kid will read this, we can correspond, relive the time, and help to refresh my memory before I check out.
I was assigned to the post office, Hq 25th Inf Div in Osaka when we shipped to the Pusan Perimeter in mid July of '50. Immediately put in for a transfer to a line company. Luckily, got the 25th Inf QM Truck Co. instead. (Some personel clerk was smarter than I).
As I recall it, we served mostly various companies of the 35th Reg. hauling in replacements of men and material. Early in my deployment, my truck was blown off a narrow mountain road one rainy night while hauling a load of Korean civialian amo bearers up to the front. I remember that experience alright. LOL.
Went from the far South of Korea to near Unsan, near the Yalu river, N. Korea.
After the Chinese hit, remember hearing from someone (the CO?) that we were surrounded. If so, don't know how we broke out. Recall seeing a column of Turkish troops in full parade dress uniform marching toward the Chinese lines. I wondered why they were doing it?
I remember the very chaotic retreat. I remember my unit topping a hill and coming into a small valley and seeing a hugh, hugh bon fire: It was the supply of winter clothing that had never caught up with us being destroyed so the Chinese couldn't get use of the clothing. The good news was, we got warm for the first time in a month, if only in passing.
After we regrouped, a fellow named Sizemore, (Emmitt, (?) I believe, from W.(by god) Virginia ? but am not sure about that), were 'volunteered' to each take a truck back North in search of stragglers. Don't remember the exact results, but do remember the whole of it was 72 hours without stopping for sleep. Became delusional and thought I was seeing Chinese Army road blocks. Then again, maybe I wasn't delusional?
The only other two names I recall is a mechanic named Berhn or maybe Beran, ( from central CA.) ((he almost got me killed a couple times,)) and one man named Frick.
In July of '51, had earned enough points to rotate out....was one of the first in the Company to do so.
Prior to Osaka, was in Kyoto, I Corp Post Office. I remember a fellow named Hiley from Okla., and a Landsbury from N.Y. Met with both of them, (and others probably that I've also lost memory of), in Korea, think they were in line companies of the 35th.
Thanks for reading,...and hope to hear from you. Larry

Comments: Dear Heroes,
I am doing research on behalf of husband and my father in law. My husband's grandfather served in Korea in the 25th Infantry Division HQ Co. I found him listed on a great veteran roster site http://files.usgwarchives.net/foreign/korea/military/korea/rosters/u14thinfa22nmt.txt
His name was Sheldon Goliger originally from NY, enlisted from Glendale, CA. He passed away too soon in 1970. My father in law says that his father did not talk about his experiences when he was a kid and he never got the chance to know him as an adult. He has always wanted to know that patriotic side of his father. I'm a Navy brat myself and we cherish our family's long line of service to our country. My father in law would love to hear from anyone who knew him or heard of him in any context. I know there are very old postings on this site, so no matter when you read this, even if it is 10 years from now, contact me please.
With Gratitude,

I have found transcripts' of The Senate Committee Hearings' (Senator McCarthy) in which William Milano was interviewed in late 1953 but the information is vague at most and doesn't contain the investigation reports' conducted by The 8th Army Investigation Team looking into the events. A professor I spoke with states that there is a lot more information out there and any assistance I can get will be greatly appreciated. God Bless each and every one of you for your valiant service to this country. All of you are heros' in my eyes and those of my family. America is forever indebted to you all. Thank you, Dean Richards

Comments: Looking for anyone who served with Clifford Damron from Arkansas. Some of what he remembers is 157th Infantry or Battalion Division, 89th Tank Battalion, 24th Battalion, supporting the Turkish Brigade, serving at Hill 1062, Kung Chum Reservoir and a Herbert Holmes from Kentucky. He was in Korea from winter of 1951 to Nov of 1953. He had been wounded and was sent back to the states Nov 53. He is having a lot of health issues from the cold weather and from shrapnel he received when he was shot. Since he records were burned in the fire of St Louis he is having trouble getting the help he needs. From our understanding if he finds anyone who served with him that could prove as documentation. Any help anyone could give would be greatly appreciated.

Comments: My grandfather never talked about the war. He told my grandmother to never ask him anything about it. All that I know is that he served in Korea in 1951 with the 25th Infantry Div.
A few years before his death he wrote a letter to GOD. He told God that he was sorry that he hadnt talked to him more often. He said in his letter "This is old Tom Jones, I have not called you in a long time. If you remember, it was in 1951 and I was on hill 616 in Korea that night."
Please help me find out about hill 616.
