Comments: On March 15, 1969, I was actually on GP Beryl. - the only artillery man (Forward Observer)
assigned at Beryl because my lieutenant was off duty. The firefight started approximately 12:30 and ended at about 4:30 pm. I did call the smoke round (smoke screen) to save those patrol who where pinned down for a long time. I fired the smoke round between the North Korean Outpost and the patrol (just slightly above them). it was on target and fired the second time and that was the patrol escaped with no further casualty.
This patrol are with the A company 23rd infantry 2nd infantry division ( if not 23rd, it is 3rd inf
Our unit (artillery) was attached to this unit for support at the DMZ.
I have more informations about the incident including the Helicopter crashed who was supposed to transport the wounded (3 wounded and one already dead). One Katusa was brought & treated with a wounded leg in the outpost and I believed he was one of the soldiers in the Helicopter.... Anyhow My name is Joseph Lacsina and can be contacted at anytime on my number (209) 204-8040 - leave a message and I WILL CALL YOU FOR ASAP

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 ?
