Comments: Would like to hear from anyone who remembers me while serving there. Remember everyone lifting the Quanset huts by hand and loading them on a flatbed on moving day in 1955? How about (don't remember his rank) Blacknorre from the Turkish unit up the road? The 'slicky boy' hanging in front of the Turkish unit until a chaplin asked them to cut him down? How about the visit from Rita Moreno (USO)at Base Camp? The Red Cross bringing coffee and donuts to the compound each month (nice break from routine)? I attended the I Corps NCO Academy at Uijongbu while there.

Comments: I spent 1954 on three AN/TRC-4 radio relay sites in Korea. The only two I remember are Rickey and Highpoint. I have lost my memory of the great guys that I served with during that wonderful tour in Korea. Traveling these mountains was something that few people in the service have ever done and I loved every minute of it. I returned to Korea in 1961 as a civilian and worked in KMAG for 6 years as a communications advisor. Some of my work took me back to one of the sites that I cannot remember the name of.

Comments: Hi:
I was stationed in Misawa Japan from 1954 to 1956. I was a radio operator at ADCC on the main base. Many happy memories of my time there. Although when I was there I didnt think it was so happy being away from home for so long.

Comments: Looking for anyone that served with the 50th AAA BN in Korea 1952-1954. Doing a preservation project on a 1943 M16A2 MGMC Half-Track that was recovered from the East African Desert in Apr 07... Believe that this track was with the 50th AAA Bn 1952-1954 in Korea before being transferred to the French in 1954.
