Comments: My dad was a doctor in 2nd battilion in Korea near worst fighting,from June of 1952 to April 1954. I have pictures, other names in unit I recall are Williams the jeep driver, Clark clerk of aid station, Robert Exon officer, Frank Willete assistant to doctor Anyone have any info, the group also had a dog named Saucer Ass found during a flood along a river bank. Woundered were heicoptered into mash unit and transferred out to nearest hospital.

My dad Albert Pedley was a physician in the army, was drafted out of his OB/GYN residency at Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane Wa,and left out of Fort Lewis WA in June of 1952, when I was only six weeks old. He returned around April of 1954. He didn't talk much about the war either, however, he was in the 2nd Batillion aid station (Sukoshi mash) Chinese for small mash unit I think, not far from the worst fighting, at Heartbreak ridge, Cherry Hill? Dad said his aid station was raided by North Koreans, and at one point had bodies stacked up 8 deep. I have been in contact with Robert Exon now a Pharmacist from Topeka, Ks who was an officer that served in the same unit with my dad. Bob remembers the monsoons and that during ae flood that my Dad and another fellow found a little puppy along a river and brought him back to camp. the puppy was named Saucer Ass and was so little she had to be fed with a bottle. Bob Exon relates that 2 or 3 North Koreans came into their camp with guns and then backed down. Lt Frank Willette a newspaper man from Minnisota was my dad s assistant, Any one know of these people or any one else. Bob relates another story, that the guys lived in bunkers built into the side of a hill and it was very cold in November and for heat used charcol in 5 gallon buckets with holes. One night this guy brought the can into the bunker,the bunker collapsed and fell on the man and the bucket and the man was badly burned. They used saline packs on him, called the helicopter , turned on the headlights to the jeeps so the helicopters could find them at night. The man later died. Williams an African American was my Dads jeep driver. There was also Sgt Wally, Capt Clark, clerk of the aid station. My Dad has pictures , Badger Trail?, Kansas Line picture( defensive line) says stay on road, MINES! Would love to hear from anyone who might know of others in my dads unit, thanks My dad was born in 1923 and would be 83 today. He loved to smoke and passed away in 1992 while I was in nursing school.

Comments: Looking for my stepdaughter her korean name is Chang Cho Ai her given name was Joanne Thomas. When I met her Mother Chang Hye Suk we married in Sept of 1977. Joannes birthdate is may 17 1981 her real father was said to be a Gi who was killed in Nam. After her mother and I returned to the states at Ft. Jackson SC we seperated in 1984, and I have not heard from her since. I have been searching for over 20 years. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
