2ID DMZ VETS RETURNING TO KOREA

Comments: July 1, 2015 marks the 50th Anniversary of the 2IDs return to Korea after the cease fire in the Korean War. The 2ID played a major role in the Korean War and it was appropriate that the Division return to continue to play a major role in guarding Freedoms Frontier.
On that day in July, the 1st Cavalry Division was reflagged as the 2nd Infantry Division at Camp Howze which was Division HQ at the time. The 2nd Indianhead Division Association is organizing a return trip for 2IDA members that were present at the reflagging and for other DMZ veterans that would like to go. We anticipate a group of about 25-30 and are still working out the details. We are working on the eligibility for participation. We are beginning a major fundraising effort to help offset the cost of the trip for the returning veterans and need to know the level of interest in this trip. The tentative plan is to depart Los Angeles about June 26 or 27, 2015 to return about July 3. You will need a current passport. If you are interested, please let us know at 2ida.mail@charter.net. Your e-mail is not a commitment, but merely an expression of interest. The leadership of the active 2ID has generously agreed to help with planning the celebration events and perhaps some tours of the area. The 2ID Commanding General and Command Sergeant Major are already at work This can be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Please let us know now so we can continue our planning.

National President, 2IDA

Comments: I was at Camp Hawkeye, C Btry 1st Bn, 2nd ADA, Nam Yang, ROK from June 1979 to June 1980. That one short year had more of an impact on me than my entire career afterward and on thru to retirement. I've posted a couple of times on here over the years, just trying to connect with some of the crew, no matter what year or years you were there because as all who served in any part of South Korea know, the connection to our particular unit/location has not so much to do with any particular time frame but more so with the fact that we have that special something in common that only those of us who were there can understand.

Comments: It was called Four-Papa-One, a collection of sandbag bunkers that faced theDMZ. My unit (battalion) was up there in June of 1977 for a 5 week rotation of Z duty. What we were was a speed bump if the North decided to come south. All these years later it seems peculiar what I remember so clearly. I was an Eleven-B Spec-4 on my 3rd year in the Army, 5 months into my tour in Korea. Veterans of that time period may recall AFKN, or the Armed Forces Korea Network radio stations on AM. It was a hot early morning at about 6:00 am exactly and the radio was playing the Charlie Tuna Show on my little pocket transistor radio. He always opened his morning show with the song Good Morning Starshine. I was sitting on the roof of this 4 man bunker eating a C-Ration. Remember Beans and Meatballs? That was a taste I'll never forget and don't want to remember. I was wearing fatigue pants, boots, a T-shirt, my web gear and my helmet (Steel Pot) with my M16 on my lap as I ate. I remember wondering what my friends back home would think of my adventure. Looking back, it seems a little amazing. I only wish I had a photo of that moment.

Comments: looking for col. reisberg as to my frozen feet and agent orange exposure. va is reluctant to man up and give me my disability.

anyone out there who was in the big fight at the joint security zone in 69-70? we fought something over 500 NK soldiers against our 80 men. president Nixon called our unit and told our col. we had to fight it out alone as 2'd div. was stopped from assisting. he also said that he personally called the NK leader assuring him if he committed anymore troops he would nuke him. I suppose he got the message. I took the ice cream parlor under orders and ran into a kid with an ak. he was more scared than I was, he was shaking so bad. if he was a professional he would have killed me. the NK opened up their ranks and allowed the little KATUSA cowards to run! so I guess we were down to about 70-75. any of you out there who remembers our trip across the rice paddy when I stepped on the mine! the sky was never so blue and the clouds were never so white! while guarding the officer's billet a boy in an OP shot at me and the bullet hit at my feet. by the time I got my 16 up the col. was beside me in his under wear, a 45 and showers shoes. standing next to me he said, 'what are going to do? I said I was going to kill him. he said he would prosecute me for murder but if I would not fire he guaranteed the other guy would pull time for attempted murder. I finally put the gun down.

Comments: I was assigned to the 43rd MASH Mobile Army Surgical Hospital from Nov 1970 till I was transferred to 121st Evac Hospital in ASCOM. I helped in the move from ASCOM to Yongsan where it is now located. When I left the 43rd MASH it was closed and turned over to the ROK Army. My job was to operate the Fuel Truck, that was used to fill the tanks for the Hospital. I was the only one with my MOS on Camp Mosier. I lived with the hospital staff, I was an outsider. Did not make may friends mostly Korean workers that worked in the Motor Pool. I was the only American GI assigned in the Motor Pool. Before, the camp was turned over to the ROK Army I emptied the basic fuel load 55 gallon drums of fuel there were over 100 drums and took me over 3 months. We used the fuel for cooking and heat.

When, assigned to 121st Evacuation Hospital, I was assigned to the Unit Supply. After that I went to Yongsan where I was assigned to the Blood Team. I traveled all over Korea. We traveled to the DMZ and all over to different military units. The blood was packaged up for Vet Nam. (Nov 1970 thur Dec 1971)
