Comments: I was stationed in Camp Mosier from 02-10-1976 to 02-10-1977. I clearly remember going to Rodriguez range to conduct night fire with our ADA toys. We tore up the roadway from Mosier to Rodriguez range with our ADA war toys. It is nice to hear from fellow brothers who also served at Camp Mosier. Great memories, crazy PT at 0500 from Mosier gate to CRC from the back dirt road that was used by the ROK army. I remember the Katusas. I still have the yearly book of 1977 from CP Mosier. Take care my brothers and is an honor to have served with the best Infantry Division in the U.S. Army and the finest unit in Korea and that is the 2nd ID. God bless you all.

FINDING A FORMER ENGLISH STUDENT WHO WROTE ME

DON SHIVELY JR wrote on August 24, 2016


City and State: VISTA CA

Unit: AFKN, YONGSAN COMPOND, SEOUL

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: I worked at AFKN as a broadcaster from 1974 through late '75. I was in the
control room of AFKN TV when someone tried to kill Park Chung Hee. I saw a LOT of
historical stuff with my press pass. As an announcer, I did some voice over
recordings for TBS and KBC. Some schools used my news broadcasts to teach
English. I left in'75 with a strong desire to return to Korea to live after my
Army duty was complete. For my 21st birthday present to myself, I was standing on
the tarmac at Kimpo. I managed to get into English Teaching on a high government
level. Then they killed Park in '79. By 1980, a little-known civil war was in
full swing when General Chun Doo Whan took over. My wife and I fled the riots by
train and walked right into the Kwangju Massacre on 5-18-80, when our train
pulled into the city to stop for the night. When the killing started, we fled
amid bullets, 10,000 man fist fights with the police and the subsequent victory
of the rebels in kicking out the paratroopers sent by Gen. Chun. For 10 days they
created their own nation. We were fleeing along the rice paddy trails. We walked
out of Cholla Province and hitch hiked back to Seoul.40 years later, I got an
email from a Ha Yong Lee, who exactly described by situation in 1977 when he met
me as Mr. Don, his English teacher. I tried to respond, thinking this a wonderful
thing, as I have actively been looking for past students. I had once contacted
your forum as around AFKN they often sprayed AO and I'm a pretty sick fella these
days. He seems to have found me through this contact with you. I am told to
respond to message 90379
I simply hit reply before noticing the number. It had an email listed as robin
lee@hotmail.com, yet my outbox says it never went. So, please tell me how I
respond to message 90379. Thank you, Don Shively

Comments: Looking to communicate with anyone who was stationed at Camp MacKenzie in 1971 - 1972. I was with Bravo Company 1/17th (M). Tragically, all my photos of this camp were lost and there seems to be very little information on the web about it. I'm hoping to collect historical information and pictures of the place during 1971 - 1972. May even open a Facebook page dedicated to Camp MacKenzie one I have enough data.

I believe there was an armor unit there as well. Possibly the 4th Squadron 7th Cav?

Comments: Just want to say hi to my fellow soldiers and friends of the 2/9 inf div. Camp Liberty Bell Korea 1977/1978.

Keywords: Company A 2/9th Infantry division Korea.Remember Hill 115 & 116 many days and nights during company rotation inside the DMZ. Couldn't get over that Freedom bridge without a pass.That one little make shift club on compound and they would bus girls in. When the guards would open the DMZ gates for us to go into no mans zone on a night ambush or day recon and lock us in. We would trade beer to the korean soldiers for martial arts training. Getting my orders from S2 then giving my operations order to my squad, checking their equipment,camouflage. one night on patrol I saw the back of the dmz sign hidden in the weeds, Oh crap we were on north korean side. High tailed it back to the right side lol. Always careful not to walk through those old mine fields at night. Mighty cold my patrol lying in the snow on a night patrol. Most enjoyable mission I volunteered to head up the support of the Sang Kwang Orphanage. Thanks to all my fellow soldiers for their support. We would have all the children come to the Camp for fire engine rides,games,coloring books ect. money donated out of my fellow soldiers pockets.All the time and work payed off to see the children's faces. The day I was leaving to go state side the children surprised me and came to the camp and sang me a fair well song and Mr. Yun Kwan Sik head of the Orphanage gave me a certificate of Appreciation. Tears rolled down my face that day.The certificate rendered me as Honorary Dad for the Orphanage children.

Comments: Hello,
My name is Jason. I was born in South Korea in July of 1976. I have a birth record of my father and it states his name is Bobby Edwards. I have been looking for a way to contact him for over 20 years and have had no luck so far. I do not know what branch or division he served in but I do know he was in South Korea some time in the end of 1975 and the beginning of 1976. I am trying to get information on family history and would like to meet him if he is still alive.

If anyone served in South Korea with him please contact me and let me know if he is still alive.
