Comments: I am Jerome’s Misuraco's nephew. I am searching for information about his company and the men who might of known him. Jerome’s remains are still buried outside of Pyongyang near a village called Chabok-tong were he was killed with two other men who are believed to be 2nd LT Elvin M. Lee and PFC Robert D. Pierce. One of the four men who set out that day (Oct 30 1950) in a jeep survived the attack. His name might have been Simpson.
Jerome is one of four boys from the graduating class of 49 who was KIA that year and the only one whose remains were not returned home out of eight men in all from our county.
I would greatly appreciate any information.
Thank you all for preserving our freedom

He was wounded April 25th 1951 by a grenade and was transported to a hospital in Japan. He is looking for his "fox hole" mate whose name was Jackson (not sure whether this is first name or last name) and also the man who helped him when he was wounded (but he has no idea who this man was).

Comments: I am looking for information about the battle in which my uncle, Herman Jacobs, was MIA on 22 April 1951.

PFC Herman Lee Jacobs, US-55029010, E Co. of 5th Infantry Regiment (then reinforced as a Regimental Combat Team) 25th Infantry Division (some records mistakently indicate 5th Cavalry Regiment)

On 22 April 1951 the 5th Infantry was dug into positions approximately 20 kilometers southeast of Chrowon and south of the DMZ. Massive Chinese forces had regrouped from previous attempts to penetrate the valley areas east of Seoul and renewed their efforts. this action was fought in the area south of the "Iron Triangle", which is in the present DMZ. The 1st and 2nd Battalions launched an attack to the north. The 1st Battalion encountered a large enemy force and commenced an artillery attack on it, followed by automatic weapons and small arms fire. The enemy withdrew, and the 1st Battalion set up defensive positions on the left flank of 1st Battalion. The enemy launched a massive attack on the left flank of the 2nd Battalion that was met by artillery fire. The artillery followed by automatic weapons and small arms fire successfully repelled the enemy, and by the end of the day, both battalions continued to hold their positions and fortify their defenses. It was during this fighting that PFC Jacobs became missing in action.

Is there any vet out there who remembers this battle and can tell me more about it? Is there anyone who remembers my Uncle Herman? He trained in Camp Carson, Colorado before going to Korea, was an excellent shot, and loved plants.

Thank you for any help you can give his family.

Comments: This is my second time writing to find out any information about my Dad, George Ernest Wells. I want to thank all who have bothered to reply to my letters. Especially Don Roush. I have received new information on my Dad and hope that this more specific info will jog someones memory of him. George served in Korea from 8/5/51 to 8/16/52. He always said his company was a "Bastard" unit to which Mr. Roush comfirmed. He was a member of Company C, 5th RCT. I'm not sure of the Divsion, but my Mom thought it was 5th Army. His unit was sent into Koje-do Prison during the riots to "Take Care of the Situation". I know this involved hand to hand combat and a General Dodd was saved. He received the Korean Service Medal and Two Bronze Stars for his service. He spoke of a fella he served with that had a saying, "When I die I'm going to heaven for lunch, if I don't see your smiling faces...I'm going to hell and join the bunch." maybe this might jog someones memory. Dad served out the rest of his tour in Belvoir Virginia. He trained soldiers in demolition and trained recruits for their Korean tour. He was a SGT(T) or Tech Sargent. A little discription of Dad; He was 5ft 8in. He could be mean as nails with a hot temper to go with it. He also had a wonderful sense of humor and was quick witted. He didn't take crap from anyone no matter what your rank. He loved his whisky and beer. He had auburn hair and green/brown eyes. I have so much more information than when I first started my quest. My Mom said not to get my hopes up about getting too much information, because like my Father, alot of you don't like to wave your own flags. I just hope and pray that you are sharing your information with a family member or better yet...writing it down. We, as children of Korean War Vets need to know the stories. We need to share the stories with our children...We must never forget! Thank All of you for your sacrafices!

Comments: My family would like to get more information about our husband and Father George E. Wells. I was quit overwhelmed when I saw how many family members are in the same situation as us. George served his country from 8/1950 to 8/1953. He rarely shared his experiences with anyone. Sometimes sharing a funny story about fellas he served with, or trouble that he may have gotten into. (and out of, there by the grace of God) My father had a quick wit about him and a quicker temper. He enjoyed his whiskey and beer and continued to enjoy them right to the end. He passed away 9/1/97. These are a few of his qualities that might jog your memory about him. We know he helped save a General's life during a prison uprising (Kogi Island?) He was sent in with a handful of guys to take care of this situation. He was awarded 2 Bronze Stars, for what we do not know. This was part of his past he did not speak of. So, if you know anything at all about George or of someone or someplace we might have better luck, please contact us. Thank you so much! Norma
