Comments: I have had the great experience of coming in contact
with veterans of the Korean Conflict and who served
with my father, Capt R F Homan Jr, battery commander.
My father passed away in 1995 and didn't speak much of
his WWII or Korean experiences. He did one time mention
Whitehorse Mountain and the terrible action it was, the
dead. He was wounded while driving up to one of his
OPs when the Chinese/Koreans started shelling the area
and he was hit by shrapnel. He was also caught in a
firefight between ROK troops and the enemy and wounded
again. The picture of his jeep show the jeep all shot
up, looking like swiss cheese. He was very fortunate
to escape with his life.

Comments: I wish to hear from anyone who served with the "Triple Nickle", near Kumhwa 1951 through 1952 or the 2nd Rocket Field Artillery Battery in 1952. I was the medic for 2nd Rocket and was injured at Chorwan October 9, 1952. I would especially like to hear from Captain Holman, Sergeant Gardner, Sergeant Venutti, anyone of the medics with "Triple Nickle" or anyone else who served in either of these units during this era.

Thanks very much for this service. Dwain "Doc" Miller

Comments: I am trying to find the outfit my father, Wayne Hopkins, was in during the Korean conflict.
He left from Ft. Sill. I was just starting the 3rd grade.
I know the outfit left as a rocket unit but later converted to 105mm howitzers towed by deuce and halfs..
The unit was African Americans, but he was Caucasian as were, I believe,
all the officers.
Thank you,
David Hopkins

Comments: I've clicked on several of your listed units that sound similar to his -- IX Corps Headquarters and 2nd Field Artillery Observation -- but either have not been able to access, or I'm not sure if it's really the right one. None of the units listed has the exact specification he has given me. One clue: His battery was an experiment in integrating black and white soldiers on the battlefield. The General they reported to was Gilmore, the Commander was Hopkins. Appreciate any help you can give me!

Keywords: My father served with the 2nd Field Artillery (rocket) battery.It was attached to the 6th Republic of Korea division and was part of{?) the IX Corps Artillery.
