Comments: To the men and women who served and unselfishly gave their lives so that a people could be free. To those who came back and left part of their life there and continue to struggle with their memories.

You along with my Uncle and Godfather helped to forge my character and touched my life. Words cannot express my heartfelt appreciation of what you have given to me and this country. I can only hope to try and pass on what you all have given me, a sense of conscience that no greater love hath someone than to lay down their life for another.

If any of you would know my uncle or have any stories relating to the 5th RCT please contact me. If you just want to correspond, drop me a line.

Comments: I was able to reach my Pop today and got a bit more information that may be of help. He served in Korea for 8 months: early 1950 and was discharged (honorably) in October of 1950. He does have discharge papers but nothing else.

Tom Patterson was sent to Korea via Evansville, IN to Camp Beckinridge, KY, to Ft. Belvoir, VA and then to Seattle, WA. Pop was aboard a merchant marine ship to Korea and returned aboard the U.S.S. General Black, which was a Navy carrier.

I asked Pop if he remembered his division and he said the unit he was in was referred to as a sort of "bastard" unit as they fought with whatever division needed additional soldiers. The last division his unit was assigned to was the South Korean ROK Div. His unit also fought along with the Sunburst 40th Div. out of California.

Pop was with the 8th Army Section, 10th Corps. He was part of a machine gun squad "Triple Nickle," which consisted of 3 battallions, each having five machine guns.

Remembers While under the command of Lt. Lee, there were barrels upon which his unit painted the words "Les Miserables." I asked about specific names of soldiers he'd fought alongside. The only name that came to mind, he said, was a German fellow by the last name of "Dingman." In fact, Pop remembers one evening when the guys were imbibing a bit; and told me about the soldiers having to dig 3' deep into the ground and setting up their pup tents over them. It was snowing at this time. He said soldier Dingman wanted to know "who moved his tent" as it hadn't been snowing when their little party began, but by the time Dingman was ready to back to his tent, it was buried in snow. Pop got a chuckled out of recalling that event.

His location was over the 38th parallel in Korea (couldn't recall the names of the cities). His unit leader was Staff Sgt. Crow.

I mentioned in my initial post that Pop was a staff sgt. I was incorrect. He was a technical sgt.

Pop had no moniker while serving in Korea. He was drafted for two years, serving 1 year in the U.S. and about 1 year in Korea.

Comments: I am looking up information (i.e. living veterans, Unit members, etc.) for my stepfather, Tom Patterson. He fought in the 5th RCT, 1950-1951, and mentioned that he was fighting in a "special project unit." He is now 75yo and his health is not good. I would like to find as much information as possible and present it to him while he's still here to appreciate it. Also, if there is anyone out there who remembers fighting alongside/knew my "Pop," I would appreciate hearing from you. I would love to take him to Kentucky for the next reunion, but I doubt his health would survive the trip.

He did not talk about his experience in the war until I asked him a few years ago after he briefly mentioned his service in the Korean War when I happened upon an old photograph of him in uniform.

If anyone remembers anything at all, even the tiniest bit of information, I would appreciate hearing from you and will pass it on to Pop.

Thank you for helping to make it possible for me to be helping my family veteran on this 4th of July, 2005.

Comments: My father was Francis L. Noyes from Byron, Illinois. He was a member of the 5th RCT Co L. My dad never spoke much about his service, until I asked him to speak to my history class 12 years ago. He spoke about things and people my family had never heard of before. He specifically cried about the death of his good friend Ray Moccio. He said to me afterward he wanted to find Ray's grave. However, my dad passed away six years ago without seeing it. I don't think he really wanted to though.

I did find Ray's grave in Hillside, Illinois and his brother Frank who lives in Melrose Park, Illinois. We met one year ago after speaking for the first time on Veteran's Day 2003. There are people that my dad, Fran Noyes, and Frank's brother, Ray Moccio served with and would like to meet or know more about. If you know anything regarding these individuals, I would greatly appreciate you contacting me. They are:

John Sylowicz, Chicago, Illinois
Eugene(?) Lowery, Billings, Montana
George Tallman, (died 8-15-52), New Jersey

These five men all served together. Noyes and Lowery were with Tallman and Moccio when they were killed. Sylowicz went to boot camp and overseas with Noyes and Moccio. If you have any information it would be greatly appreciated.

Comments: I have come to state terrible news. My grandfather, Richard Curtis, passed away this past week. As my senior thesis in college, I wrote a paper focusing on the 5th RCT and my grandfather. If anyone has any stories, recollections, etc. that you'd like to share, please contact me.

Sincerely,

Joe Gibbons

Comments: I am his nephew, my father is his brother. Until recently we that he was MIA, now gov. records show he was identified and listed date of loss was 9-16-50. I know that my father told me his mother had gone sometime around date of loss to identify remains, but said they were not his. She has been deceased since the late 70's and that was the last we had heard about my Uncle Francisco Alonzo. If anyone knew him or can give me any info on how to get the information on who identified his remains and where his has been put to rest.

Thank you,

David Alonzo
