when you were ambushed on November 23, 1962. I need to prove that I was actually

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

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: 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: Hello engineers:
I was sent to Camp Essayons, C company in Jan 1962 as a 050.0 low speed radio operator.
Since my mos was not needed there, i became a floater, working where needed. When SSGT
Ware rotated back to the U.S. without a replacement, i took over his duties as
operations NCO. Later i became the driver for the company commander, driving him to
Camp Stanley, Camp Red Cloud, and out to the road projects, like smuggler gap road. Our
company built up most of the roads around Uijongbu with de-composed granite and raised
them in some places over nine feet for grade. Our company also built many bridges and
culverts and fords. Remember Camp Essayons fondly.

According to what I have read, the government has only admitted to using agent orange from April 1, 1968 - 1971. Is it possible to really get our government to admit use prior to these dates?

After waiting 3 years to get my rejection on dioxin poising from the 2nd Infantry chemical Company located at Camp Howze in 1968. See Steve Witter letters. He even had to challenge the VA to get his benifits. HE ACTUALLY MIXED AGENT ORANGE WITH DIESAL FUEL! He sprayed camp Howze. They emptied there poisonous brew about 50 yards above my hooch.of course we all exposed to benzine. Remember getting our diesel stoves in our hooches cherry red hot because it got so cold?? Everything was covered in diesel fuel, including us. A big diesel soaked spot under the 5 gallon can. I'm trying to get everyone fighting the VA to grow a beard. I think our country would be shocked if all of us fighting the VA GREW A BEARD!
I've since hired an attorney submitted 2 more doctor letters. It's been a year since I appealed. I think the VA is still working on claims from the Little Big Horne. I can't believe that the VA has become the veterans enemy. How did it happen?? Hmm maybe starting 2 wars and cutting taxes had something to do with it. Grow a beard!!! Lars

Comments: So this is what our brothers get for their service. It was not enough that DMZ Vets were not told of exposure to Agent Orange until forty two years after the fact. How many of our brothers died due to this exposure, and never knew? Now there is this scandal of kickbacks and promotions to VA employees to let our brothers die. This is criminal, this must be dealt with by another cabinet other than the VA. The Secretary of the VA must resign and be held accountable for his actions. There are VA employees receiving kick backs and promotions in order to bog down the system while our brothers die. My God ,what else is lurking out there? This is the tip of the iceberg. The claims for disability are being denied so some one can receive a promotion or bonus?? It is no wonder why it takes so long to adjudicate a disability claim, employees are being paid to hope another brother dies before the VA has to pay out what they are entitled to. CRIMINAL,CRIMINAL CRIMINAL. WHAT IS NEXT. GOOD LUCK BROTHERS.

Comments: Looking for any old friends and comrades who may have served between 69-70 with B company, or who lived on Camp Coiner at the time. It has been a long time and I lost all my pictures from that time in my life. If any one out there has pics of the camp and people who served at that time and would be interested in sharing them it would be gratefully appreciated.

Comments: I am looking for anyone who served in ASCOM City in 62 and especially in the summer of 63. My unit records are lost and those of us who are still alive need to prove that the unit existed. I need help. Nobody in the unit can get benefits because there are no records to be found.
