Comments: Army Vet denied VA claim for AO at the DMZ during 1968 the VA says he was at Munsan Ni Korea, where the $%$ is Munsan Ni, Korea? Funny cause I have a prior vet same scenario who qualified but this guy is denied, go figure the VA. Where can I find the papers showing he was receiving combat pay for DMZ duty, and that can place him there? His 201 file did not have any such orders. Does any one have any recollection of a fratricide killing involving a soldier named Sholak, or a variation of that last name? VA claims that the DMZ was NOT a hostile area in Korea. I need help countering all these VA allegations. Awards are Korea Defense Service Medal Soooooooooooo I need some help fellows. Thanks

Comments: I was stationed first at C battery 7/5 from july 63 thru april 64 then transfered to e 4/44 I returned to 7/5 in 1988 and first worked out of the DSP and as such visited all 7/5 unit tac sites. later assigned to HHC as part of an engineer team i continued to visit all 7/55 sites but in addition it had to make runs to bde hq a osan AFB.

Buring the many different runs I can attest to the fact that all of the sites had one thing in common. no trees, grass, or bushes on the firing and radar sites. i fact i have pictures tacken a c batery showing this lack of said items.

while many of my rips to osan we made with a 715 i had to make a few trip ith a q21/2 truck so i was direcked to use the truck entrance. as you entered the gate to the right side as you went in was in fact the mixing plant foe the agent orange plant that was used to spray the agent orange.

I have since talked with air force personel who were stationed a osan afb who were given agen orange compensation. I further beleive that not only 7/5 but all 38th bde units were subject to multiple sprayings of agent orange.

I have had at least 2 of the desieses associated with agent orange and have had been denied my claim.
after reading some of the other articles on this web site I went back into my old photo albums and found some of those old photos showing c battery and one with me that i hope will settle the question. if it does I will make them alalible to all.

my e mail is rmdz@hotmail.com.

I know we enlisted folks did crazy stuff, but officers too? I guess I was just a naive 19-year-old then. Our stories could fill volumes of books.

Comments: It's been 51 years since I first walked on Mae Bong's summit as a young 2nd Lt. and was stunned by the view down a long valley into North Korea. The site was newly constructed so it has no perimeter wire, no machine gun nests, no handrails nor heated outhouses. My first thought was "What am I doing here?"

It was only after I read our manual on "Terms of Engagement" that I understood why we were there. Our orders prohibited us from firing at an enemy aircraft unless we actually saw open bombay doors and they were headed towards us. We were South Korea's tripwire.

I would love to hear from any of Mae Bong survivors.

Some of my memories include: The long ride on dirt roads to Chunchong and the
building of the dam

The women along side the road with babies on their
backs making gravel from large rocks with
their hammers as part of the road paving
project

The 13 mile trip to the top of Mae Bong

Having to use the handbrake on the jeeps after losing
the footbrake due to fording the creeks on
the trip down from the TAC site

Allowing the local whores to use the showers in the BOQ
in the wintertime

The frozen black potatoes

The horrible reconstituted milk served in aluminum
pitchers.

The 30 days it never got above - 30 degrees

The 30 days of continuous downpour and the mud.

Eating C rations from WW 2 when our supply trucks
couldn't run due to flooded rivers/

The day our supply run truck was overturned in the river
drowning everyone including some civilians.

The locals stealing our como wire on a regular basis

The locals stealing components from our radars and us
having to buy them back in Chunchon so we
could back on line.

After a thief was killed we were issued shot guns and
when another thief was wounded we were
issued one shell and ordered to keep it in
a fooed top pocket.

Our guard dogs bloody footprints in the snow around
Mae Bongs perimeter

Teaching Lt. Heward how to play chess

Building the concrete patio behind the BOQ with
Lt. Hatcher.

Drinking pitchers of martinis after duty in the BOQ

Our CWO trying to screw a whore on the bar in
the BOQ until our Captain stopped them.

The civilian who was in charge of maintaining our
roads and water supply locked a whore
in his room for a week.

My short timers calendar

My first glass of real milk upon my return home.

Comments: On March 15, 1969, I was the forward observer at OP Beryl. Approx 12:30 PM. I
saw people down below just passed our outpost and I asked the Lieutenant in
charged who those people are. He replied those are our patrol. and I asked what the
hell they are doing down there. He said they are replacing markers. within a minute
here came fire to outpost beryl and a radio message from the patrol that they were
hit and were pinned down. Message: One instant killed and 3 wounded. Once, the
firing started I grabbed my radio and called home base (Camp Pelham) Fire
mission, fire mission and said repeatedly this is real. this is real. we fired back and
forth to the N. Korean Outpost I was waiting for permission about my request. i was
told to wait.. I said we are going to get killed here. Finally, I got the message back:
request to fire denied.
I almost cried because out patrol could not even leave because they were in the
open field. My artillery unit told me that they could only give me smoke rounds. So I
gave them the grid coordinates and i fired twice. i even saw the big smoke between
our patrol and the N. Korean OP. that intensified the fire power on us. The patrol
escaped without further casualties. Our Outpost (Beryl) was under fire and it got
caught on fire. And I yelled fire lets get out of here everybody went to the trench
line. The outpost was burned to the ground. That's when the N. Korean stopped
firing. Probably because they saw our place was burned. Approx. 5pm there was a
loud explosion on south side. and I asked what was that. later we found out that
the helicopter which about to transport the wounded (3) and the dead soldier went
down due to an explosion. Nothing left. total casualtyies 7 - 3 crews included. of the
crews is a physician...... Now anyone on the 23rd Inf, 2nd ID who were at OP Beryl
and also soldiers of the 10-man patrol (7 left) Please have me contact at my
number (209) 204-8040 call anytime. You may leave a message and I will call you
right away and thats is a promise. My address is 3625 Jarena Drive, Modesto Ca
95357. It will be helpful to both of us. I will give you more info once I meet you.

Comments: Our Unit 1st Bn 42nd Field Artillery of the 4th Missile Command
worked Directly with the First ROK Army along the central and
eastern DMZ areas of responsibility, There are no available
records as to where in these areas the FROKA sprayed agent orange.
Rocket Firing points ect. Our Unit has been so far excluded from
the Units exposed even though we had fire points inside the Buffer
zone to fire back into St Barbara. Something is just not right.
What happened in the FROKA areas and why aren't veterans that were
assigned in these areas being given consideration or at least
benefit of the doubt? Its not over. A Camp Page Veteran.

INFILTRATOR IN THE IMJIN RIVER

Unit: COMPANY A 2/23RD INFANTRY 2ND DIVISION

Comments:
It must of been late April or early May 1968, that I and
Charles Henry were assigned to man position Alpha #1 which
overlooked the Imjin River as it flowed south and at that point
it curved around our position and flowed east, Well at about
1100 hours through the binoculars I notice a log up river
about 600 meters from us, It was about 8 inches in diameter and
8 feet long and it is floating down river length wise very slow
and the front of the log was Sawed Cut. That seemed very
strange to me because we never seen logs in the river.
Especially ones with sawed cut ends.
I told my partner that I suspected that maybe a NK
infiltrator might be holding on to it and we should open up on
it. He was a bit apprehensive about firing on it until I told
him it was a free fire zone and all we had to do was report
that we fired on a possible infiltrator. The water that day was
very very choppy and it could of also been high tide. Maybe a
half hour passed when it reached our position and it was about
2/3rds across the river and pararell to us. So I told Henry I
was going to fire at it anyways and for him to continue to look
through the binoculars.
I set my rife on semi automatic and I aimed just at the
water line and fired about ten rounds the length of the log.
Then I seen something black move away from the log. My first
thought was that it was a North Korean infiltrator in a wet
suit. As it pulled away the log then started to float width
wise down the river so I fired maybe 4 or 5 more rounds onto
the target. I asked Henry if he could see a dead body floating
through the binoculars and he said no and added if it was an
infiltrator he is probably at the bottom of the river. I then
radioed in that I fired at a possible infilator on a log and
forgot about it.
If you are in the Infantry you live moment to moment, hour
to hour and day to day. Three or four weeks later we rotated
south of the Imjin River for our four month southern rotation
and I heard about dead North Korean infiltrator washing up on
the southern shore of the Imjin River. I believe that maybe the
infiltrator I fired on may of been one of those that washed up
on shore. The following spring a soldier from the 3/23rd
Infantry and the ROK soldiers killed 2 infiltrators from the
same position..
If anyone remembers a NK body washing up along the southern
banks of the Imjin River west of Freedom bridge during late
spring 1968 give me a response. Best Regards to all my fellow
DMZ Veterans. Mario Pacella (Sgt.)
