Comments: Trying to locate men/women who may have known my Father. He was a base commander on the DMZ from 1965 -1966 (unknown name). He was awarded the Army Commendation Medal. He rescued small boy from drowning in either a lake or river. I believe at this time his rank was 1st LT. I don't know if he was with the Calvary or the Infantry at this time. That is about all I know about that timeframe. He was KIA on 8/22/68 in Bien Hoa, S. Vietnam, Delta Co. Commander, 1st Inf Div/26th Regiment. I have heard from many of Vietnam Vietnams that knew him while in country. I would like to learn about the time he was in Korea. I would appreicate any comments or suggestions about how, when or where to locate this information. His military records have been requested.

Comments: Greetings and Salutations! Visit my website at: www.militarybadges.info and see the home page with photographs of myself in Korea. This is NOT a commercial website and nothing is sold there, but do visit and sign the guest book. I was picked for "riot squad" during the student riots against then Korean President Syngman Rhee in March 1960 when he was replaced with Korean Air Force General Chung Parkhe. Write to me and if you provide a picture of your favourite, I'll draw it for free and pay postage as well. I draw up to 400% larger than actual size as you can see at my nonprofit website to help educate collectors. I am also an underage veteran, enlisted illegally at age 16, shame on me! :) Sarge Booker

Comments: I served with the 1st Howitzer Battalion 79th Artillery, 7th Infantry Division. I was with Charley Battery at Camp Paine. The HHQ Battery was at Camp Hartell and the 3 gun batteries were at Camp Paine.
I was in Korea from Dec. 1965 to Jan 1967. We were artillery support for the 2nd Infantry Division up on the DMZ.
I went out out DMZ patrol for two weeks. Serveral shots were fired at us by the North Koreans no injury's or caualties. Another patrol was not as fortunate as ours and suffered casualties.
It was a very active time up on the DMZ. Our unit was supposed to stay and support the 2nd Infantry in case the North decided to attack. The infantry was supposed to pull back and protect Seoul.
Anyone who was there at that time and wants to contact me and re-live some old times, feel free.

Unit: 3RD PLT, 'C' TRP, 4/7 CAV, 2ND INF DIV

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN - KOREA

Comments: I took Basic training at Ft. Polk, La. from Jan '69 to Mar '69. I then was sent to Ft. Knox, Ky, where I took AIT, as a tanker. We trained on the old M-48's. I then got orders for Korea, where I was assigned to 4/7 Cav, in Jul '69. We had the M-48's for about 2 months, but then they brought in brand new M-551 Sheridans. They sent a civilian team with them to train us. They were excellent vehicles, and we received very good training. I was a tanker just for a short while, when they needed 11D scouts. So I got a primary MOS of 11D, with a secondary of 11E. I remember doing a lot of patrol and guard duty up on the DMZ. As a matter of fact, I drew hostile fire pay for 8 months. And yes, there were numerous firefights and contacts. With Nam going on, the politicians didn't want the American people to know that there was combat going on anywhere else. In Aug. '70, I received orders to go to Germany. I was there, in a tank battalion (3/63 Armor) for about 3 months. I then volunteered to go to Viet Nam. I hated the duty in Germany, way too much spit and shine. There was also a lot of drug problems. And after being in 4/7 Cav (which was an excellent outfit), and pretty much in a combat situation in Korea, I felt that I should be in Nam! So much for the thinking of a 20 year old! Anyway I got to Nam in late Jan.'71, and I was assigned to 'C' Trp. 3/5 Cav. We were attached to the 1/5 (Mech) Inf Brigade, which was headquartered at Dong Ha, which, ironically enough was, on the DMZ! We were called "the Bastard Cav", that was because our parent Div was the 9th Inf. But that Div was pulled out of Nam, about a year before. So we were attached to the 1/5 (Mech), then later (around Jul'71) they stood down, so we were attached to the 101st Airborne. At that time we were the last American combat unit north of Hue. We worked around Khe Sanh, Cam Lo, "the Rockpile", and Quang Tri. That whole area was pretty bad, with a lot of Dinks. All were NVA, and excellent soldiers. I was on a M-551 Sheridan for a short while, but then they needed "Grunts", so they changed my MOS to 11B. I did get a little bit of shrapnel once, and I also came down with malaria. But to this day, I consider the experience and training that I received in 4/7 Cav in Korea as the basis for getting me through Nam. We lost a lot of good guys in the 3/5 Cav, but I made it back in one piece. I've had some problems, (Agent Orange, flash-backs, etc.), but I did make it back. And like I say it was the 13 months in Korea, with 4/7 Cav, that allowed that to happen! I've always had the most respect for those that did combat duty in "the Land of the Morning Calm"! May God Bless all those that have been, and are now in uniform!

I would like to thank Hal, Ted ,(owners of this site) and Bill Massey of the Topeka VA Hosp ... who for many years have given me pieces of information on where to find Sgt Parpart...

A medic and I retrieved Parpart..so it is Parpart and my goal to find that medic ..It was a very emotional experience locating Parpart in Columbus,Wis. in Sept of 2003. The details of the incident aren't clear to either Parpart or I but meeting and talking did refresh us and fill in some missing pieces ..

My Sgt and I and the driver were just reconing the area for rotation . We were 1st 32nd hq-recon and Parpart being 2nd or 3rd 32nd ...Task Commander of Columbus,Wis VFW. ...I told him some of his guys were on this web site looking for him . He took an interest in the fact but knows very little about computers but is ready to learn. We are planning on becoming good friends in trying to locate the medic that helped retrieve Parpart with me ..

Any information would be greatly appreciated..

Comments: About a month or so ago, I connected with Ken Leighty who was the CO at RC#4, 2nd Infantry Division. He has a great website, Korea, A Tour of Duty (www.koreaatourofduty.com) and he asked if I had any photos from the time that I was in Korea.

Well, just wanted to let you know that my photos are now online on his site. Since we were transferred as well as traveled to various locations as part of our Red Cross job, I was able to send him some photos of 2nd Infantry Division, JSA, Camp Red Cloud, Camp Henry, and Camp Page, as well as some shots of Seoul.

It is easy to navigate his site, just click on the 8th Army patch, then click on any division patch, then click on Donut Dollies. If you want to see all of his photos, click on webshots and it will give you the whole list.

Thought some of you might be interested. Ken would be glad to hear from any of you. I know that some of you have already sent him information and photos.

Comments: I am researching the personel involved in the incursions of the North Koreans/Chinese into, and across the DMZ during the years 1961 - 1962. There I witness the extraction of Americans from a mine field near the DMZ and I want to know of anyone having knowledge of helicopter pilot, crew members, medical personnel of the 121st Evac Hospital, or security personnel who cloistered this information under *TOP SECRET*

Service or Relationship: AIR FORCE VETERAN - KOREA

Comments: Advisor to Korean Aircraft Control and Warning (AC and W) System with duty location in Seoul, Korea. The AC and W Systems consisted of radar and communications systems and associated facilities for operations, maintenance, housing, and logistics. Throughout Korea there were AC and W sites, a training center, a logistics (depot) center, and a Wing Hqtrs. Closely associated with the AC and W system was a long haul tropospheric scatter (Tropo) communications system called Blue Fortune (aka Peace Fortune). Besides the Advisory Group Hqtrs staff, there were advisors at each of the AC and W sites, the training and logistics centers, and at the Wing Hqtrs. In Seoul the unaccompanied staff lived in two AF barracks at Camp Coiner (just outside of Youngsan). Our offices were at ROKAF Hqtrs with our ROKAF counterparts. Had an excellent tour and enjoyed working closely with the Koreans, USAF staff in AFAG and the 51st Fighter Wing, 314th Air Division and 5th Air Force. In later tours at Maxwell AFB and at Keesler AFB I renewed friendships with many Koreans attending training programs in the US.

Comments: I just discovered your website. As I scrolled through the messages, it brought back many memories. Thank you.

From July 1967 - December 1968, I was a "Donut Dollie" in Korea with the American Red Cross Clubmobile program - stationed in 2nd Division at Camp Pelham (twice), I Corps at Camp Red Cloud, and Camp Henry in Taegu.

Of all the places we programmed, I think my very favorite was the 6th Aviation Platoon at Camp Page. They were a very special group of guys - wonder what happened to Earle Irwin, Dennis Rudel, Harry Kornbau.

At Camp Pelham, Ed Grigsby, Rick Rodgers? At Camp Red Cloud, Bill Fisher?

I would enjoy hearing from anyone that I knew over there.
