Comments: Did anyone serve in Korea 1950-51 with GHQ Long Lines. My Dad, Dave Carello was a cook in a unit commanded by a COL Spier or speer. Like to find out this COL First Name as well as what actual unit designation he commanded. I believe they served in the Pusan area.

Comments: I was in the Commo Platoon with 1st BG 5th Cav from 1959 -1960. I operated the teletypa and the crypto machine. The Commo Officer was Capt. Mica. Trying to pinpoint where I was stationed. 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.

pilots were medically trained. They are now known as Solo Pilots. I am writing of my
experiences for my grand kids and could use confermation from some of my old buddies.
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.

Comments: I arrived in Korea in the winter of '55 -'56 and was stationed in Yung Dung Po to guard the fuel lines from Inchon to Kimpo. 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: 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.

EQUALITY WITH RESPECT TO VETERAN DIOXIN EXPOSURE PRESUMPTION FOR ALL VETERANS

Comments: Equality with respect to Veteran dioxin exposure presumption
for all Veterans


Hi,

Currently only veterans of the Vietnam Conflict are afforded
this in a limited presumption, Boots on GroundĀ legislation, if
they were in the Republic of Vietnam (Served in the Republic of
Vietnam between 1/9/62 and 5/7/75) per the Department of
Veterans Affairs. In fact any current end date for any location
would be invalid as Dioxins stay active for much longer than
the time since the 1962 admitted RVN Agent Orange / Dioxin
start date, current end date is the end date for RVN service,
per the DVA. I was in an exposed unit, one of many and in many
countries, not recognized by the DVA.

That's why I created a petition to The United States House of
Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack
Obama.


We the undersigned petition the US Senate, US Congress and the
President of the United States to enact legislation that makes
ALL veterans have equal presumption of exposure to Dioxins
while in the service of the United States at any location or
unit. We feel that ALL veterans MUST be treated equally with
respect to Dioxin exposure by the US government and Department
of Veterans Affairs.



NOTE: Veterans must also still prove they have a recognized
condition, that maybe caused by Dioxin exposure, during or
after service to get DVA benefits.


Any one 18 can sign.
If effected vet make sure you add your statement in comment
area too!

Service or Relationship: MARINE VETERAN

Comments: Served with ATco/H and Sco/4th Marines at Nara,Japan. Was assigned
TAD to H and Sco/5th Marines, near Imjin River, Korea. 7/Nov/54
to 12Dec/54. Delivered new crypto machines. Weather was very
cold and we lived in tents. Very glad to return to Japan for
Christmas '54. Didn't see much of Korea. Anyone that
served in Korea after the peace treaty (6/1953) still
deserves the medal.

Comments: The coldest place I have ever been. If anyone who
served in the
43rd 58/59 please contact me and lets catch up on
things. Lew


Keywords: Not in the war but served in 43rd M. A. S. H and
121 Evac 1958-1959. We still went in the field and
pitched tents but no one was shooting at us. A few
guys would step on land mines left over and a few
North Korean incursions just to cause trouble.

Saw enough to respect those who served during that
brutal war in
that terrible place.

Comments: My Dad Cpl.EARL N FAATZ SR was in the Korean Conflict and spoke

very little of his tour there from 1953-1954 in the Army, he has
since passed away...I do know that he was very proud to have served
his country...

I've always been curious to rather agent orange was used during
that time in the Korean Conflict.
