WE WERE THE REAL DEAL

Comments: We Were the Real Deal

If you were in a line company with the 3rd Brigade, Second Infantry Division during the years 1967-1968 you are a member of an elite few. We are back from the dead. We lived to fight another day. We who served up on that tension filled zone. We are alive. If you were there, you know what this is about.

It was where we lived --a Spartan existence, moving at a frantic pace. Patrolling, taking positions, night ambushes, GP, Bridge duty, other guard duties. Yes, we were ground ponders of the first order. No choppers to pick us up, we humped the boonies, yes we were true legs, dog faces, 1-1-bush-masters grunts and fuckin proud of it! We humped through the mud, snow, up mountains, over valleys, through thick, jungle like foliage in the summer, tramping over reminders of death. Moving through rusty concertino wire, through old minefields, where strewn, were the haunting white bones fragments , feeling the ghosts, those before us who valiantly fought and died Surreal just begins to describe it! . . . Expendable we were, sure to be written off.

To our front a grotesque, monster lurked, tensed, ready to strike us down. To our rear, a treacherous river; that bridge, (the only crossing) bristling with explosives ready to blow at a seconds notice. There we were, sandwiched in; backs to the wall, no means of escape from that that little strip of land. We were there for one reason, to get on the horn to let the world know that Joe as coming!

To a man, (including medics, weapons crews, support troops, etc.) all were in harms way. All of us on the line had personal brushes with death at one time or another. Shots, machine gun bursts, explosions rang out as a matter of course. Our adversaries were cream of the crop, finely tuned from birth, with no other purpose than to kill us. He was the best NK had, in turn he made us better. Yes, it was basic, kill or be killed.

Can you remember those nights? Dark shadows moving through the bush. Someone out there, probing the concertino wire, causing those suspended tin cans to knock together. Suddenly a rifle screams in the night.. A submachine gun answers --a grenade. Breaking contact the infiltrators move away . . . spirits fleeing into the abyss. Hit and run that was his tactics.

Moving quietly into our pitch black, ambush position thinking stealth was on our side only to hear, AMERICAN SOILDER IN SOUTH KOREA, HOW ARE YOU? those giant speakers blurting out at us. She would welcome the patrol, sometimes give the names out of patrol members, perhaps, wishing someone a happy birthday. The first few times it was scary, after a while, no big thing.

It is cold, muggy, icy, hot, and never comfortable. Breathing in mosquitoes, rats running over your legs, deer barking, frost and bugs biting, the hawk biting even harder --our own little piece of hell, yet somehow, we came to tolerate it. Did we have a choice?

Filling sandbags, digging, renovating our estate, breaking for some delicious beans and mother fuckers, waxy chocolate bars and stale Pall Malls for dessert.

Finally, back at the compound, the troops anticipate hot chow and a shower. Anxiously, they line up for some real food. Walking in, and what? The assholes have cooked up some C-rats! (Bastard, cooks) What the fuck! The Korean, KPs have made off with all our food in their brown paper bags. Were they pissed. But they were infantry, the lowest form of military life, able to take abuse in many ways. If they were anything, they were tough! If one had the designation, 11b-11d-11-c, in front of your MOS, your hash was settled. No matter, our espirit de corps stayed in tact. Our battle cry rang out clear true through the hills and valleys FTA

Each has his own memory of that secretive war, but our test came that January during the Vietnamese Tet. Mr. Kim our neighbor to the north wanted to test our resolve. The fat bastard decided it was time to attack. We had a real war on our hands. Constant firing and grenades sounded through the night, illumination, high explosive rounds dropping from the sky. This was it!

To each, there was no doubt that Joe was coming in force. Make your wills! Told that most of us would be casualties, guys wrote what they thought would be final letters home. We talked of our loved ones etc, not what we thought would be the coming onslaught. Prayers were said. These were said, not as begging for Gods mercy, what we wanted, was the courage to fight to the end. Capture by that merciless enemy was out of the question.
.
Well bros, we held tough. It was our example at the front that staved off a two front war. To put it in our terms, we were bad asses! Our heads held high, we stayed the course. Too tired to know or care that we saved part of the world. Lowly infantrymen, --who knew? I am sure (as usual) the guy at the top got a well done from the higher ups, but it was you and me and our loyalty to the brotherhood. .

Yes, we are back from the dead. We lived to fight another day. We who served up on that tension filled zone. We are alive. If you were there, you definitely, know what this is about.

To paraphrase Lincoln: The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it will soon forget what you did here.

Comments: Hello,
My name is Ismael Lopez and I would like to reconnect with my
buddies from Korea and touch bases. I hope they are all doing fine. I
was station in Korea during 1967-1968.

I was in the 1st Batallion, 38th Infantry, Company B, 2nd Infantry
Division. I was an Imjin Scout, I earned my scout insignia at CC3.

I was stationed at Middle Camp Custer ( I even have a sign that reads,
"Mission Safety. Safety wins more than Luck. 1st Batallion, 38th
Infantry, 2nd Infantry Division, Middle Camp Custer"

We used would go on Hunter-Killer partrol, also Night Ambush and
also used to stay the nights in the fox hole at the barrier. We also
spent nights at the observation point. We used to hear the North
Korean speakers all night long!

After 6 months I was transfered, to the 2nd MP unit.

I remember some of my friends were Bob Watson, Donnie M. Baker,
Marrero (who was transfered from Vietnam due to injury, I think he was
cuban and from New York) we were good friends and I have several
pictures of them.

I have several pictures of my old buddies and Korea and would very
much like to reconnect with anyone who may have been there at this
time or who remembers me.

Hope to see or hear from someone soon. Bye.

You can email me at partytimepartysupplies@yahoo.com -- If you can

Look forward to hearing from someone soon.

Comments: I served in Korea late 1962 - 1963 at HQ S3 taking reports from the DMZ for compilation to the Colonel in the morning.
I worked 8 hours on and 24 hours off until I left Korea for my old outfit at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky home of the 101st Airborne Div.
The notable memories that I have of my tour in Korea was how cold it had gotten in the winter, and the ambush at 1 yankee and 2 Zulu that killed 2 of our guys and wounded one other. We had flushed hills during the day (before I was assigned to HQ from Company A )and had stakeout at night, until the North Korean agents were captured and/or killed way south of our positions towards Seoul. The whole tour was a FOG to me. But, I do remember Robert F. Kennedy visiting our location to be briefed by 9th Cav next door to us. ( Lucky bastards)
I was the one who told the North Koreans about the assasination of John F. Kennedy, when I called it to the guys out in the Zone.
We all knew they were listening in on our calls,and we thought it would be kind of interesting to speculate just what the North Koreans would tell their guys that would differ from our report.
We were stationed across the Imjim River, and I can remember the fragrance of the fertilizer used in the spring for their rice paddies as we neared Chang Pari at the end of the bridge. (Hooooo-weeeee!)
Munsan-Ni was a nice little town compared to Chang Pari, But it was Chang Pari that gave me fond memories.
Oh,well..here it is 2010, and from some of the pictures I saw of Chang Pari, it has certainly changed. Using Google earth, I could just barely recognize the town, had it not been for the bridge.
Well, thats all for now, I wish I could remember all the people I worked with that year, and I want to say I am sorry for anything that may have made them angry with me. I was young, so I did make my share of errors.

I now have heart problems, prostrate problems, an enlarged thyroid and muscle pain. The VA says that some of these can be from agent orange. I've filled out the paper work and waiting for results.

thought I would freeze to death, nasty cold and windy. We were there to
provide security for the station. I believe the assignment was for 30 days.
Heard shots many times on a daily basis. Many of them were directed at
us, and I believe many were directed at dmz patrols. Most people do not
have a clue as to the happenings on the dmz in Korea during this time,
but those of us who served there do. Can't remember the name of the
place I was at, I believe it was on a place called Radio Hill. If anyone has
any info on this, I would appreciate hearing from you.

Comments: My husband was in Korea 1969-70. I am looking for any information about the storage and use of agent orange. David passed away June 25, 2008. Even the VA person said his cancer "hairy cell leukemia" was a form of CLL. On his DD214 there is no unit listed but Co C and A. I know that he received orders from the communication building. Also, he was at Ft. Polk, Ft. Knox, Ft. Gordon and left from Ft. Lewis to Korea. If anyone has ever heard of David Ray Bryant, Holly Grove, Arkansas please contact me. He also loved music and would play a guiter and sing. Wore a western belt buckel.

Comments: Tried to contact most of you many times but was not successful.Would love to hear from you. I still reside in Jersey City, NJ and my phone number is listed. I just retired 10/09 and worked for Zurich Insurance in NYC. I was in 1 World Trade Center when the first plane hit on 9/11. I saw more that day than my tour in Viet Nam in 1968. My main squeeze was Kim Bon Ok (Angel) who worked in the Rendezvous club. She was so beautiful and I think of her until this day. After my Korea tour, I was stationed at Fort Stewart, GA. It was beautiful there but too boring for a 19 year old, that is why I volunteered for Viet Nam. Met Mullins (finance dept) in Viet Nam 90th Replacement Center but once he was assigned somewhere, I never saw him again. We were at midnight breakfast when TET started and they blew up our ammo dump. Would love to hear from my old friends or others who were stationed there at the same time.
