Comments: To whom may I corcern, I am reporting that during my time of services in South Koreans perimeters, I was expoused to be contaminated with Agent Orange. I had the opportunity to, that our heavy security fences were sprayed to kill the weeds and plantations that were impairing the visibility during our guard duties. We never had in our minds that it was harmful to our health, until all Vietnam services soldiers and civilan personnels became very sick due to contamination with Agent Orange. I am suffering sa series of health problems, like Diabetes type 2, skin rashes, respiration problems, asthma, muscle spasm and impaired vision, emotional incapatated, I am in contant muscular fatigues and pains. I will be interested in any attention give to my health problems. Thank you very much yours, Eliezer Baez-Hernandez, Bronx NY 10469. NOTE: 11,100 Results Any Time.

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: The 326th CRC was in Korea during the War and was moved to Taiwan as the 327thCRC about 1954. I would like to know where, in Korea, the 327th was stationed. The CRC units were Com Recon outfits and part of the Army Security Agency and The NSA. I was in the 327th from late 1955 to April 1957.The ASA was deactivated almost 40 yrs ago so info on them is hard to get.We were called Spooks or Ditty-Dah-Dah boys.The first year on Taiwan was kind of rough.Water had to be trucked in to us and the weather was hot., We had one 30 second shower a week.Tthere were earthquakes and typhoons I kept my class A Ike jacket and pants in my foot locker. We were not allowed to wear class A uniforms or fly the flag. Technically there were not supposed to be American troops on the Island. The ChiComs didn't like it. The fleet could protect the Island but no US troops were supposed to be there..
When I brushed my uniform off, before going stateside, the sleeves fell off. It was the tropical mold. Happy to leave there. The medics gave us a tincture of something or other to put on our body where mold was forming. It stung like hell. Buddies held you down while they applied it. My skin remained a yellowish green color for years wherever it had been applied. At least it did not spread .

We were called Spooks or Ditty-Dah-Dah boys. Thanks for any help.
PS---If you can find any Army Security guys still around, I would like to hear from them.

I know iw was about 35 miles North of Seoul. We had the 10th Turkish AF in front of us and the 12th Cav was on the DMZ. I used to deliver Classified Docs to them. Can anyone tel me where I was. I always thought it was near Munsani or uejonbu or pajuri. Forgive the spellings. The engineers built a swimming pool by the Officers Club on the mountain side and the first rainstorm took it out. It nearly took out the village across the road also. We had an Observation Post on th mountain behind us, I think it was called OP Mazie, Across the road was Mortar Battery and a hill with one pine tree. Supposedly there was a honcho buried there. When some drunkin GIs cut the tree down, Reps from Sygman Rhee came in a heliocopter to investigate.

We were up the hill from the 43rd MASH Unit Hospital and were 8th Army attached to the
43rd for rations. We wore tanker jackets with a five inch emblem of a devil on on a
Bell H-13. The chopper was snorting fire, and the devil carried a trident. Our home
unit was the 49th helicopter ambulance located in Seoul.

From there I was sent to a Drum and Bugle School in Pusan and then to Camp Casey where we were 32nd Infantry regiment security guards manning the gates into the regiment and marching in all of the parades from 7th Infantry Division on down. I was a personal guard to Jane Russel and Rita Marino in USO shows. I spent 2 horrible winters in those 16 months and still have trouble with the cold. On rotating back to the states I served in the 6th Armored Cav at Ft Knox. Would love to communicate with anyone who was in these places when I was.

Comments: Like to talk with you about you tour of duty in that cold hell

hole along the DMZ above the Imjim river across the Libby

bridge. I was with the 8th engr. cleared mine fields maintained

roads and we used to set the charges under libby bridge when

they would call a George alert. I will never forget the cold

nights at minus 20 below on guard duty in those big black mickey

mouse boots and trying to load the M1 rifle with gloves on at

2am.

17 MIGS SHOT DOWN OVER TAIWAN STRAIT

Comments: Most of 2nd RR Sq. went TDY to fooosa just weeks
after arriving

at Kadena AB, Okinawa in August/ September 1958.
Terminals were
set up in Taipai, and Kouisuing, the southern port
of fooosa,
with sites every 30 miles or so. During the next
couple of
months 8 Mig 17's were suppose to have been shot
down using our
ANTRC-24 Louisiana Circuit, by Chinese Nationaist
F-86 jets. I
had a hard time believing it even then. The US Air
Force was
allowing Sidewinder heat seeking air to airs to be
first used in
combat by another Air Force? Now, I stumble on to
information,
on the internet,that we even had Starfighters even
pics of the
104's being unloaded, with wings off, from C-
124's,secretly in
the country. Also 17 Migs, Not 8 were shot down
using just 17
Sidewinders. The U S Air Force was pulling the
triggers on the
Sidewinders. Ski and I had to go back to Okinawa
for new orders.
We flew from Kouisuing in a brown C-46, belonging
to the NCAF.
We first had to take some Chinese soldiers out to
an island near
Communist China. They had wives, kids and their
GOATS and a box of
chickens on the plane with us.. We flew in clouds
without seeing
the water, until just before landing we went to a
lower altitude
to land. The only thing to be seen was the landing
strip, not
any buildings. So we landed and the soldiers,
families, goats and
chickens hurried off and we turned around and took
off back into
the clouds till just before we landed at Tai-Chung
AB. Anybody
ever have an experience like that? We had a site
somewhere on an
island toward Mainland China, and the site crew
had to get there
on a PT boat. I used to have a picture of a 2nd RR
guy wearing a
helmet on their way back from a supply run. One of
those wide
helmets used for radio earphones. In late 1959 we
moved 5th Comm

Grp Headquarters and 2nd RR Sqdn to Clark Field
AB, PI.

Miss Lou, our puppy, smuggled from Okinawa inside
Ski's zipped
up jacket, when we were flying back to fooosa on a
Japan Air
Line flight. We had another puppy later on also,
and a pet
monkey that stayed with us. Can't remember the
names. Trying to
remember things to jog some pals memory from long
ago.

8055 KOREAN LOCATION

Comments: I served in the 329th Com/Recon unit located a
sort distance north of the 8055th and
use the 8055 as a reference point trying to
pinpoint the location. What was the name
of the village north of the 8055 location? The
closest I can come to the name is
Changgo-ri. I have an USAF map dated 1951 and see
no other villages in the area.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and will
email a copy of my map if I can ever
figure out how to work the scanner on my new fancy
dancy Canon Pixma 6220.
