SPINAL BIRTH DEFECTS

City and State: PIEDMONT MO

Unit: FATHER FROZEN ON CHOSIN RESIVOR

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: I was born with spinal birth defects I was born 1970 I have yet to receive any of my fathers benefits I have been fighting since January when I had a thoracic scan I have an extra lumbar vertebra, protruding disks all the way down deformed spinal cord, Pionidal cyst on tail bone with cord intact in it. blocked fluid from L4 L5 down to cyst. in the thoracic region I have two disks fused with no surgery they were fused at birth no disk I was born that way. Three additional disks just blew. a large hematoma on T12 spinal cord deformed at T3T4 L4 L5 blew displacing my sciatic nerve with right leg nerve damage. and it gets better my uterus was attached to my spine my intestines were attached to my uterus. I was never able to work hard labor in my life disabled fully at age 30 by social security and still no help from my government. I need any evidence that agent orange was in fact used during this time frame. from 1950 through 1968 My father served 22 years and this is how they take care of the children effected I need help to fight this thing I have been doing it on my own. I did request the military to do a spinal fluid test to confirm it and it will. but they never will do a physical. I cant believe they go to the extreme they do to hide these cases mine should be an open and shut case your spine is formed at birth. not unless I just grew and extra vertebra . I will loose the use of my legs I have digestive issues as well due to nerve damage. I do not know what to do. I am appealing they denied me if you have any photos that show the vegetation destroyed during the Korean war please send me copies to my email thank you so much or if you know someone who can help me fight let me know. This is so Wrong of them to make me live on 745.00 a month in social security when my father served in three wars got the purple heart and good conduct medal in Korea only seven of them given and his child suffers like this with over 22 years in military service. I cant even fathom what our government is thinking delaying my case even a day let alone this long I am 40 I should have been set up with benefits when I was 15 and my cyst was treated in Blydville Arkansas the doctors told my father what this was due to he cried on the way home that day I remember it well. why ? was I overlooked why wont they treat me with a specialist that knows about this problem and pay my medical bills why? do I live off of so little money each month I deserve to be treated better I will be treated better I was even told " you know they will deny you till you die" that is sad when the same people you call for help tell you to give up. I need a lawyer someone please tell me what to do? I have submitted all my medical records to verify all these facts and still no help.

MICHALE EDWARDS wrote on April 3, 2010

Service or Relationship: FAMILY MEMBER

Comments: My father Corporal Willie Edwards was transferred from the HQ 1st FA BN (Osbn) APO 358 to Inchon RD 8057th AU APO 971 in May 1955. He was responsible for sending out the monthly newsletter for the 936th Field Arterillary Battalion (combat assignment)during active combat in Korea.

Corp. Edwards also served under Brigadier General Mason Lucas, a graduate of West Point. He served for the Special Services I Corp in Korea 1955. My father relates that Brig. General Lucas asked him to set up an athletic program because of his degree in education and coaching experience.

Corp. Edwards said he obtained two metal buildings and made a gym for the teams. He organized an inside tennis court for Brig.General Lucas. Corp Edwards said he traded C ration coffee to the Koreans for labor to install a hardwood floor in the gym for the basketball league. He then looked over files to TDY soldiers into the Special Services I Corp. athletic program. Corp. Edwards then went to Japan and bought athletic equipment and proceeded to organize basketball, football, and baseball programs for the Special Services units in Korea.

These teams were called the Special Services I Corp Cannoneers. Corp. Edwards organized a tour of Japan during the Korean war after the armistice was signed. The I Corp Cannoneers played the Navy, Marines, and Air Force teams respectively.

In 1955 my father was rotated home. He received a letter of Appreciation from Brig. General Lucas for organizing their athletic program and my father coached and won the I Corp Basketball championship. He was then selected to coach the I Corp All Star Basketball team.

My father speaks of nothing more fondly than this remembrance of his role in the first Korean War after the armistice was signed. My father had the privilege of carrying his passion of teaching and coaching to the far East and serving his country doing what he loves best , coaching basketball and football.

I am seeking any service men who participated in these leagues or any service men who attended the games of these leagues in the first Korean War. I had no idea such a thing existed in the war once the armistice was signed.

I would love to be able to communicate any remembrances or events or special messages for the Special Services I Corp Cannoneers.

My father is ill, he is going blind, and well, he is 80 years old so every day with him is a blessing.

Please email or respond if you have any comments or questions.

It would so brighten his day to hear of these special memories. His heart is all American true blue apple pie and I am so proud to be the daughter of a man who served his country and took care of his family in every way as passionately he served in the first Korean War.

I would also like to hear from family members of deceased soldiers who may have served or remembers these Special Services.

Thank You.

Sincerely,

Michale Edwards
