Comments: We are very pleased to let everyone know that a family member found Capt. Hughes' Bronze Star document and we now know what he did on
October 9, 1950 at Onchon-Ni.

A division convoy en route to Pusan was ambushed on that date and Captain Hughes went onto the battlefield, under fire, to administer medical care to, and evacuate the wounded.

We also discovered that he served with the 7th Medical Battalion Clearing Company.

If anyone remembers Dr. Hughes, who has since passed, would you be so kind as to contact us? We are in the early stages of publishing Dr. Hughes' Korean letters and drawings to his then four-year old daughter.

Comments: My dad Kenneth Ingle (nickname Doc) was in Korea April 1953 to September 1954. He was with the 7th med battalion ambulance company. He was only 17 years old and he drove an ambulance. He tells a funny story about cleaning his ambulance in the creek, not realizing he drove through a mine field to get in the creek. The marines came and flagged the area to drive his ambulance out. Of course everyone got a good laugh. He would love to hear from any old buddies or anyone that served when he did.

Comments: In my search for the story of my Granduncle, Medic Glenn Runge (KIA Operation Showdown 10/14/1952), I received a copy of a letter sent to Glenny's sister, Joyce Briggs, in 1953 from a James F. Shine from Maryland. James had written that Glenny was assigned to his platoon, and was killed by enemy mortar while he was carrying a wounded soldier to safety. James was also carrying a wounded man but was far enough in front of Glenny that he was not fatally injured by the blast. James wrote that Glenny had been injured prior to picking up the wounded solider, and was out of medical supplies.

My mother, brother, and I are faithfully searching for anything we can find about Glenny's life and death in Korea. We have been captivated by his story and the depth of love we see for him in those who knew him. We want to share his story with the children who follow us to ensure his memory stays alive in our family as completely as possible.

A critical piece of information we are missing in finding out more about his last days is the platoon to which he was assigned.

So if you are or know James F. Shine or remember Glenn Runge, I would very much appreciate hearing from you. Thank you.

He was also a P.O.W. captured with 6 other men by the Chinese and taken to a holding camp. They escaped by cutting a hole in the fence. The Chinese chased them to the Yalu river which took about 8 days. Only three of the 7 men who escaped survived the river.The names my dad remembers of the 7 men are Rodrigues(died by gunfire in the yalu river), Johnston(survived the escape), Galk( survived the escape), and my dad James Lee Hall(survived the escape with the help of Galk who went back in the Yalu river to help him) They were taken back to Japan for physicals and recuperation. My dad was a little over 6ft. 3in tall and only weighed 130lbs.He was on the USS Briggs which broke the record for time on his trip home, 6 days!! He was in the 7th division and 1st calvery Regiment. Thank You, Patti Martin

Comments: My friends and I are working on a history project which focuses on MASH units being a frontier. The theme of the paper and video is how the early MASH units were a frontier in which those who served there dealt with many hardships. If anyone could offer us information we would appreciate it. Thank you!

Comments: Interesting that Sandra Quall's request for information is directly above mine since our fathers were lost together just as the chinese overran Inchon. Sandra, You are welcome to any information that I have about the incident, but I think that our mothers corresponded at the time. If anyone else has more information, it would be such a blessing to these family members.
