Comments: DoD to recognize Korea vets with medal
by Tesia Williams


WASHINGTON (Army News Service, Jan. 2, 2003) - A new defense medal will eventually be issued to military members who served in the Republic of Korea, or adjacent waters, after July 28, 1954.

The new Korea Defense Service Medal was authorized by the Fiscal Year 2003 Defense Authorization Act.

The U.S. Korea Defense Service Medal should not be confused with the foreign service Republic of Korea War Service Medal that was authorized for U.S. military personnel who served in Korea between June 25, 1950 and July 27, 1953, officials said.

The new medal will be for those who served in Korea after the war, up to an undetermined ending date, said officials from the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

Given the volume of anticipated recipients, officials said the time it will take to award the KDSM is difficult to estimate. They said it will take time to identify, notify and award the medal to eligible former service members.

Some of the actions that must be completed are: designing the medal, obtaining necessary funding, developing policy for issuance and wear and processing to include verification of service and then award of the medal.

The first three actions should be completed in approximately four to six months, officials said. However, based on previous experiences when creating service medals the entire process can take up to a year, officials added.

A Man that was in the 2nd Engrs was assigned to the 31st Engrs, I think he was in my Company “B” in FT Bliss, TX. I think that one of the men was in my squad and I can’t remember his name. He was in the motor pool on guard duty and there was a pole trailer between him and the grenade, it got his legs. There was five others that got it in the back of a dump trk they were killed by a Grenade and that’s all I know. IT had to have been in May or June of 1967.

Comments: I have six children who would like to know about their grandfather (I am personally interested as I never met him). He died on December 5, 1974. He had just retired from the Army in San Antonio (Fort Sam Houston). He served in WWII and apparently entered Omaha Beach on June 7 (Day 2) and was hter for the liberation of Bergen Belsen. After WWII, he was drafted for the Korean war and served two tours(?)and left in 1954. I am not sure where he served the first/ second tours but know from a cassette tape in 1969 that when he left in 1954 he was stationed in Kunsan. He stayed in the service after Korea as he already had 10 or more years in the service. He last served in Korea circa 1969 at ASCOM City where he worked in the quartermaster corps. Anybody who knew him or has any information about him would you please contact us.

Comments: My father was in General MacArthur's Honor Guard.
He also served in Vietnam as a desk Sgt.(?) He suffered a horrific trianing accident at Fort Bragg and it left him disabled enough not to go back to the field. However he remained in the Army until his retirement in the early 70's. I have been to one reunion with him for the Rakkasan's(?spelling) and I saw a side of him I had never seen before. He seemed to be in his element.
I am seeking anyone that served with him. He is getting up in years and I am sure he would love to hear from any of his old buddies.
P.S. I am the son of a veteran and am very proud to be an American. I am very thankful for my freedom and the opportunities that I have as an American. So, for myself and my family, I say thank you veterans and all who serve our great nation. God Bless you and keep you.
