Comments: My Dad, Eugene Hesse, hosted MASH reunions in Greeley, CO and in Mesa, AZ. He just celebrated his 85th birthday. Today he gave me quite a long list of people he is curious about. If you have any information about them, please drop me a line and I will be sure to let him know.

Nurses: Lt. Nicosia, Lt. Ellen Church, Capt. Elmira Dalyrumple, Lt. York, Lt. Kathy Wilson, Lt. Baumgartner, Captain Bean.

Docs: Major Gould (still in Palm Beach Gardens?), Major Easterday, Capt. Arthur Adams, Capt. CT Lee, Colonel Ike Tender, Sgt. Passion, Capt. Parker (dentist), Capt. Cote (orthopedic).

Enlisted: Sgt. Burgess, Sgt. Bob Masters, Corporal Cox (Canadian), Corporal Schwartzkopf

If you are one of the people listed, how is your health? Are you able to travel? Would you want to do another reunion in Mesa? Dad can't travel, but he sure would like to reconnect. I haven't mentioned this idea to him, but if there is interest, why not? : )

like to know more about his service, experiences,

Comments: My father served in Korea with the MASH 8055th during the Korean War
as a motor pool driver.

Whenever I have tried to talk to him about his experiences there, he
only gets a few sentences in before he has to stop. A good friend of his
who was an infantryman was KIA there. Sixty years have not healed all
the wounds.

I have scanned many of his photos from that time, and they are among
my most treasured possesions.

Comments: Hello, my name is Ken Parks and I'm currently studying Korean at the Defense Language Institute. One of the many things that we have been learning about is the Korean War obviously because it is the major feature of Modern Korean History. And as crazy as this sounds MASH units were about the extent of my knowelege, and I just want to thank all of the men and women who often had to become supermen to do the work that they did. Without MASH units I believe that there would be far more graves from the war and that it is solely because of your efforts that some many made it home.
I love learning as much as I can about the history of Korean, both pre- and post-war eras. If anyone would like to share their experiences, it would be great to hear from you again.
Thanks again.

Comments: My aunt served in korean war as a army nurse. When she came home, her mind was gone, and she was in a home for years. I never asked her any information, because she didnt even know she was in the world. How do I go about finding out was mash unit she was in? I found tons of slides of her and other nurses that are in great shape. Does anyone have an idea what I can do with them?

Comments: My name is Kelley and I am a senior in high school in New Hampshire. I have to write a 20 page report on whatever topic I choose for my english class (it's a requirement for graduating) and my topic is the medical advances made from the Korean War and the doctors and nurses who performed them. I need an interview from someone who was actually working in a MASH unit during the war to complete this project. if anyone is interested please send me an e-mail. The interview can take place online, it would just be answering a few questions, and i could send them to you before hand. So anyone interested, please e-mail me, thanks!

SEEKING INFO CAPT MARY-FRANCES HALEY NURSE ANESTHETIST

Comments: Need info by March 1st, my mother's 83rd birthday!!!Please help me make my present.
My mother, Capt Mary-Frances I. Haley was a Regular Army nurse anesthetist, from Philadelphia in the 8033 from 1950-51. I believe she transferred to Toyko General in 52. She was quite beautiful (curly black haired, green eyed) and vivacious. She married on R and R at the chapel at Tokyo General Hospital to Major John W. Riley, an Administrative Officer from the Med. Company 7th Calvary.FECOM, formerly with 118th Surgical Hospital FECOM.

There are only only medical personnel names that I recall from childhood listening to the few stories my mother ever told (and can fit to a photo). A nurse, Fran Reynolds. Doctor/Lieutentant Cooley, who I believe may have been a dental surgeon, but that is not positive information, though he certainly was a physican.Another physican, who may have been a Light Col was named Easterday. Two commanders were a Col Gould, whose first name may be "purdue" (or that may be a nickname) and Hollerman, whose first name may be Jermiah. I also can identify a pilot, named Harvey Fulleflove (spelling uncertain), who used the name Harvey Fuller, was nicknamed "Speed" and was from Texas: I believe he ran medevac and supplies. I know he was Airforce; I am not sure if he was a helicopter pilot. I would very much like to find any of them and any others.
I have quite a few photos of MASH, not just of the surgery, but of quirky and daily life which she took. She was a fatastic photographer. These pictures certainly put one clearly into a time, place, and experience.

I would like to connect and gather more info as a present for her 83rd birthday, March 1st. I would appreciate memories about her from anyone who knew her, as well as information about her co-workers and friends, living or dead.

Thanks for any help you can offer. I love my mother very much, and have always been very proud of her.

Because of her example, I became an M.D. PhD, at a time when women in my field were still rather rare. Because of her example and yours, I have always endeavored to persist, regarless of obstacles.

Wishing you well. Thanks.

PS Please be aware there is a MASH reunion scheduled for MESA, AZ, May 2003
