Comments: My husband was a member of a special ops unit that was stationed just outside Camp Yong in 1963 and we would like to hear from anybody else besides Tom Rosenberger that remembers tthose guys who were camped just outside your camp that wore no insignia on their uniforms and went to chow at different times than you did. These guys would be the guys you were told not to associate with. I would like to hear from anyone who knows about the jeep that went out to take an officer to the DMZ for an inspection and broke down about 5 miles from camp and was stripped by the ROK's before the wrecker and mechanic could get back.

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: My husband was stationed at Camp Rose from May 1969 to July 1970. He has been classified as disabled by the VA because of his Agent Orange exposure while doing recon on the DMZ during that time. He has several of the conditions recognized by the VA and he was quite lucky the process didn't take as long as for some of you. My question is are there Vets that were at Camp Rose and on the DMZ at that time that are on this site? If so I would like to know if any of you are having trouble with your bones? My husband has had both hips replaced, his back completely rebuilt and a broken elbow that they had to remove the radial head. There is nothing in his family history to account for this kind of trouble. I am wondering if there are other conditions that Vets are suffering from that the VA has not recognized. Any info would be helpful. For many of our 43 years together I have thought there had to be some cause for as many problems as he has had other than it was just getting older. Thank you for your time. Ginny Wascher

Posted a note in August. Was pleased with a lot of great replies. One reply was from Burt Baca who served in the same company and who happens lives 30 minutes away. We visited with each other and spent over 4 hours going down memory lane. So go ahead and post a note, you never know what you'll come up with,

One puzzle was the names of the two camps we rotated back and forth from. One was in the zone just north of the Freedom bridge and the other just south of that bridge. I have pictures of both camps and can send them to you with the hope that you can named them.

Camp Wilson ? Lawton ? Or ?

John Wayne! To this day 51 years later I can't even remember why I was sent there
for. But I remember it was a mighty lonesome trip and upon my return I came upon a
convoy that had been sniped on.

I finally got back to good ole at Anyang and did my report and of course there was
no more said about it or could you get any information. Strange things happened in
Korea that seemed to just go away. Had a couple scraps there that just is gone. I
guess Vietnam took over with news of combat.

Got to say that out of my many overseas trips, the 62-63 Korean Tour was the worse.
The MSR's I understand have been greatly improved and just maybe, you don't those
old pieces of Korean War equipment with hands shaking, parked around the country

GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Dennis Klein is seeking GIs who were present at a student Invasion on the DMZ following the Blue House incident that took place either January 24th or 25th, 1968.

Approximately 200 unescorted, unsupervised and unchaperoned high school students took it upon themselves to attack the Freedom Bridge. Their intent was to get across the border and be martyred causing an escalation of the conflict resulting in full scale war ultimately bring about the reunification of North and South Korea. The frenzy resulted in a few broken bones and other minor injuries. But the GIs kept the peace and made sure these kids were turned away and sent home.

This story was recently featured on news services throughout South Korea. So far it has generated a tale of another, wholly separate protest that involved students, police and the military that took place on February 7th. We are NOT interested in the February 7th event.

WE ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN THE PROTEST THAT TOOK PLACE ON JANUARY 24TH OR 25TH 1968 AT FREEDOM BRIDGE.

If you were there, knew anyone was there or have any knowledge of this event PLEASE CONTACT DENNIS KLEIN at dklein@boundarysolutions.com

Comments: Dear Vets, as seen before on this site, i am in search of anyone who may have served with Michael Scafuto (aka Mikey Stache) in Korea, 1969-1970, not sure name of camp, 8th AHQ, 7th Inf.Div., 305th SigBat, one good buddy by name of Hudgens. Michael passed away last year after a battle with kidney/lung cancer, type II diabetes and came home with a skin disorder which we are sure was chloracne. I have promised my husband to continue his claim as he asked me to. He spoke often of Pork Chop Hill and told many stories of going to and from the dmz areas for various reasons. He also had something to do with the 199th? His MOS was 76y20Supply. Any help is important. TYVM for your service.

Comments: As a follow up to Barbara Wrights' post on missing documentation for USAF Security Police that were stationed in Korea during 69-70. Request your training records(AF Form 623) to see if your Combat Preparedness training was posted. Mine was NOT!! Also FYI your TDY orders did not state that we would be going to the DMZ for the week of weapons firing and tactics.

Comments: Dear Fellow Vets, I am continuing my husbands AO claim as promised to him. His name is MICHAEL SCAFUTO and passed away last year. He was 8th AHQ/Supply 1969-1970/7th Inf.Div and attached to either the 305th or 304th Sig. Batt. His mos was 76y20Supply. He was fighting his claim for about 4 years/had kidney&lung cancer/chloracne and type II diabetes. He had one good buddy that I know of by last name HUDGENS (thick black mustache&always had shades on in pics). All his records from Korea destroyed in some fire they say. I need proof that he did go back and forth to dmz areas for diff reasons, even though the shit reached all of you either airborn or in the waters. please help if possible, and TYVM for all your service.

MISSING DOCUMENTATION FOR A VA CLAIM

Comments: Attention Korea veterans if you are missing Official Documentation to get a VA disability claim approved let both your congressman and Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman of the Veterans Affairs Committee know. I know of at least two incidents where people were killed or wounded and there are NO Official Records proving that the people were killed or that others were wounded. Congress must be made to understand that it is not just Afghanistan or Iraq vets missing records but anyone who served in the Army run the risk of finding out that their records have been shredded or lost. In our case our records have been shredded.

Comments: I am trying to find out the name of the weapons ranges and Camp near where the 4 Communications soldiers were ambushed. I was in that area on a training TDY in May 70 for Air Force Security Police combat preparedness training. I think it was part of the 7th ID operational area. The answer will help with my claim for AO exposure (hopefully).
